Why I created Hop

During the pandemic, I had a very difficult time finding a job in Canada as an immigrant. In the process, I thought that job hunting in particular should be more fun.

I felt that most of the existing job sites had a lot of text and overall very boring designs, and these made the job search process boring.

I created Hop in the hope that I could change this situation, even if only a little.

How lucky I was

So @marckohlbrugge let me use the Startup.Jobs API for Hop.

I call the API on Supabase Edge Function.

Difficulties

The fact that 50 jobs were retrieved together via API when the /app page of the app was launched, and that these jobs were managed in a global state.

It's hard to manage them so that users don't see the same jobs multiple times. It's managed mainly here
