[Owasp-leaders] Can we be more helpful to job seekers?

That's exactly the reason why we put this restriction in place. Since we now
have the resources to manage the list a bit more closely, I think we can
consider whether (and how) to allow recruiters to participate.  This is a
bit closer to commercial activity than OWASP generally moves, and we want to
be sure that it does not appear to compromise our independence from
commercial pressures.

Why do they have to give company name? Why can't it just be a
description of what they do? An HR person might want to give a gmail
account and the company might not want to broadcast that they are
hiring software security people. In my neck of the woods, that
requirement alone would scare off potential employers.

I can't speak for the people that originally put this jobs page together,
but one possibility for including these requirements is to avoid "spam" from
job recruiters.  I'm sure most of us have run into "jobs" from recruiters
where all of the job info is top secret.  After further investigation, it
turns out the recruiter doesn't even have a job lined up, but he is just
trying to get more professionals into his database for future jobs.
Requiring a company name and contact info is one way to avoid these junk job
