How to Create a No Code Job Board

How to create a No Code Job Board

In the past few years, No Code Boards are gaining significance in terms of popularity. There can be several reasons for creating a No Code job board:

  • Quickly build value by picking a relatively less served niche.
  • Helps in finding better talent to scale the brand.
  • Increased visibility for the brand actively looking for new employees.

If you’re someone who wants to create an actual job board, there are only three fundamental things you’ll need to develop:

  • A frontend,
  • A backend,
  • A pipeline connecting/validating the data to & fro.

With the ease of development these days you should zero down on your objective first before you start developing. There are hundreds of job board sites out there with thousands of job listings. 

How will you set yourself apart from most job boards? Once you have an answer to that, you should start developing your own job board.

If your objective is to get the job board live yesterday, then you’re better off using an ‘all-in-one’ tool like Job Board Fire. Their core functionality is allowing users to create a job board in under 10 minutes with No Code & no maintenance. 

But, if you do have time and want more control over what your No Code Job Board exactly does, you’re better off creating it using Airtable & Webflow.

Building your Backend: Airtable

Airtable has a very intuitive AI to create the backend or database. Start by creating a table, and naming it appropriately. It will help you trace back and update whenever required. 

Starting with a few attributes like Company, Position, Location, Date Posted, Tech Stack, etc are some common information added by Job Boards. You can be as thorough or as discrete as you like. Check out the Airtable Job Board template for a more comprehensive list of attributes.

Building your Frontend: Webflow

Once you’ve sorted your backend, building a front end can be taken care of through Webflow’s template designs. You can have full control if you build it from scratch but using a template will speed up the process. 

Unfortunately, there are no free job board templates on Webflow available right now. But if you choose to purchase one, you can customize the template with your brand colors, logos, and copy.

Connect your Airtable Database with Webflow CMS

Webflow CMS is essentially a website that stores information that is available on your database. In Airtable, a Webflow Collection is identical to a Table.

CMS Collections should be pre-created in your Webflow template, but if you're not using one, you'll need to make one yourself. Call this Collection "Job Postings," identical to your Airtable Table.

Your "Job Postings" Collection (Webflow) fields must exactly match the fields in your "Job Postings" Table (Airtable). Double-check that all of the options are correct.

Final steps

Once you’ve sorted out your back end and matched your front end with the same attributes in the CMS collection. It’s time to sync it through a third-party tool. Make and N8N.

Simply link each field in your Airtable to its corresponding field in Webflow and toggle sync on in N8N or Make. Any time you add a job posting to Airtable, it will now sync to Webflow immediately.

Congratulations, you have created a job board. The only thing left now is to populate your board with job postings.[3]
