    Design looks good but the hover effect of the cards at the bottom (white to orange) is a little drastic and rough on the eyes.

      Ah, good feedback, thank you. One of my first post-launch tasks is to re-think that UI. Mostly to make it more skimmable. While I'm in there I'll work at a less jarring hover/focus state. Thanks again

    THIS GUY.

    Not sure you remember me. We spoke at a conference together a few years ago.

    Anyways, congrats on the launch. This is a fun idea. Nice work :)

    Is this US only?

      Great question, thank you. We've been getting it a good amount since launch. The answer is "sorta". For initial launch, yes we have been US-focused and also focused on only a handful of cities. You can see this in the UI when choosing cities for a Profile or when searching for Profiles. Also in the Profile creation form there's the question about US-work eligibility.

      The reason we chose to focus on US cities right now was just a decision to help us get launched. We're a small team–two people–and know making Limbo international and doing it right, will take a good deal of effort.

      Having said all that it is possible to create Profiles today with non-US cities specified. And it's possible to search for non-US cities using the free-form text input. For example; https://www.limbo.io/profiles?q=toronto

      So, today, it's not built in to the UI fully, but it's also not impossible. Once we get traction with our current setup, we'll be able to put in the needed effort for international support.

    Hi friends, I'm the co-founder and Designer/Front-end Dev of Limbo. We just launched Wednesday, but have gotten great feedback so far. Our goal is to make the hiring process more fair and smoother for everyone involved.

    We've put a lot of work into the product in the last six months and have a lot more we'll do. A design-specific thing ya'll might enjoy is our pattern library https://www.limbo.io/about/patterns/ Even though we're a small team of two, having it in place and maintaining it has been a huge help for designing new UIs and keeping things consistent. I plan to write in more detail about it and our design process.

      Did you use a tool to create and manage the pattern library? Or did you build it from scratch?

        We've been building it from scratch. Started with a blank page and just plopped html elements in it, super raw. I'm planning to write about the process more. There's so many pristine looking pattern libs out there these days it was a little overwhelming to start. So I just avoided all of them. It's worked really well for us. We just build it up as we go. It's a mostly manual process. We have a bit of JS in place to render the code snippets just so we don't have to repeat ourselves. It's been fun and useful even for our small two person team.

          That's great. Validates my reasoning for building my own as well. Less overhead and I can write the code to fit my needs.
