    The question here really is: Why do you need to collect user information, and what are gonna do with that? I really believe that you made an amazing piece of work here, but requiring users to register to get access to a collection of public information is simply nonsense...

      Oscar, I got your point but:

      1. While every piece of information is public, the curated combination of them is not;
      2. Some jobs are found on members-only LinkedIn and Facebook groups, they are not public;
      3. At the same time, everyone could just copy and paste company name and position to google and quickly find a source no questions asked.

      Also, take a look at Flexjobs is running a subscription-based job board with the same remote and other jobs. They are huge! 1.5M visitors monthly. Is it nonsense to charge job seekers $5 per month for access to public information? Everyone is free to choose what he likes.

        Ok, makes sense, but here's my suggestion then:

        You could at least tease the users with some details about the opportunity, instead of let them hit hard on a register screen/paywall. It might not give much, but at least the they won't lose context of what they were doing. Only after that, I think it would be more reasonable to ask for registration.
