Masterbranch is an automatically generated profile based on the experience of software developers as such. So far, we analyse open source contributions from the following sources to generate the profiles:
If you have suggestions about other sources you'll like to have agregated in profiles, you can leave them here http://masterbranch.uservoice.com/forums/19330-general
Masterbranch is also an online tool for browsing software developer profiles and for contact candidates.
What differenciates us form our competitors? Profiles contain verified information, as they automatically generated based on real facts.
We are specialized on software development and give more importance to facts rather than words in a professional profile:
We like this Jeff Atwood's (aka codinghorror) quotation:
"Perhaps the choice of open source project matter almost as much as the programming itself. How many open source projects labor away in utter obscurity, solving problems that nobody cares about, problems so incredibly narrow that the authors are the only possible beneficiaries?"
-- From the article "Open source experience overrated"
By clicking the "Send email" button or link you can contact a software developer through Masterbranch. You are able to see see in which kind of job opportunities the developer is interested: full time jobs, telecommute, open to ideas, etc.
You have two different ways of seeing who applies for your job:
1) You'll receive an email every time that someone applies for the job
2) You can see all the applicants being logged in and visiting the job posting
We only partner with top tech companies, no matter if they are startups or big ones. Are you one of them?
