Dear Andy,

 

First of all, I apologise for my delayed answer - I've been swamped by the
Summit  stuff. Secondly, I thank you for continuously supporting OWASP.

 

I have finally set up the requested project page. It was placed here
<https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Category:OWASP_Jobs_Project>  and can be
accessed here
<https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Project_Information:template_Jobs_Project>
. Please feel free to change it as you find best.

 

I also created a mailing list for your project. The subscription page it's
here <https://lists.owasp.org/mailman/listinfo/owasp-jobs-project> , the
mail address is owasp-jobs-project at lists.owasp.org and the provisory
password is alewis. 

 

I suggest writing here
<https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Category:OWASP_Jobs_Project_RoadMap>  about
the plans that you have for your tool regarding future developments. 

 

Regarding your question about expectations and resources available to you
and the project, I am putting the OWASP Board in CC.  

 

Please, don't hesitate to get back to me whenever you think that I can be of
any help.

 

Many thanks, best regards,

 

Paulo Coimbra,

 <https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Main_Page> OWASP Project Manager

Hi Paulo - as time permits could you please set up an OWASP Jobs project
page with corresponding mailing list?  Also, is there something I can read
to help me understand expectations and resources available to me and the
project?
Thanks,
Andy

3.	A search of "OWASP" on indeed.com yields 126 hits; don't know how
many are dupes 
4.	Rather than reinvent the wheel I recommend we start a Yahoo or
Google group for this, similar to the Yahoo CISSP Jobs board. 
5.	I get about 1 inquiry per month, sometimes more, so I created this:

Let's move it over to a project page and get more widespread contributions
for tips to find AppSec professionals.

Great idea!  I think the paid-for job board is going away - so we can do
this easily.  We never wanted to make money off the job board, just make it
easy to manage.  We figured that an unattended wiki page would get abused by
spammers/headhunters.  But I think we can now have someone manage the job
board.

I've noticed that our OWASP job board is relatively empty.  I imagine we use
this as a method of generating revenue from companies interested in
targeting the app sec community. However, since it's not getting too much
traction (at least that's what I perceive) how about we jumpstart it in the
following way.
 
Let's use a few job search engines and search for the term "OWASP" in job
listings. Whatever we find we will add a link on our OWASP job site. This
will accomplish a few things:
1.     It will provide additional exposure to companies looking to hire
individuals with OWASP skills and thus enforce to candidates the importance
of OWASP related knowledge

2.     It will encourage companies to add OWASP skills to the job listings
since they get free exposure to a great candidate pool

3.     It will continue to push the OWASP brand forward

 
In order to not compete with the fee based portion we can keep these links
small or at the bottom of the page. Paid advertisements would be larger,
with a company graphic and at the top of the page.
 
 
Here is a job agent from career builder which shows recent jobs with the
term OWASP:

Thanks,

(By the way, my job rocks! I haven't been looking J I keep this job search
agent because I'm curious how many companies are actively looking for OWASP
related skills).
