Quick Pitch: Geeklist is a community for geeks and developers.
Genius Idea: A place for geeks to share their accomplishments and connect with great companies and other developers.
While Christian Sanz worked at startups, he realized that there was a need for an effective way to recruit developers for jobs at top companies.
“The only ways for developers to connect with companies were through recruiters and résumés,” Sanz toldMashable. “I wanted to create a place where developers could share their accomplishments, their ideas and everything they did that is critical for hiring.”
So he and his friend, Reuben Katz, developed Geeklist – a social online community for geeks to share their accomplishments, connect with companies and join geek communities based on their interests and expertise.
By connecting to Geeklist using a Facebook, Twitter or email account, developers can create profiles that include information about themselves, such as their interests, knowledge, areas of expertise, what technology they use, etc. They can also create “achievement cards” with short descriptions of their accomplishments.
