The idea for Elo Criativo started after finding the great JobRoller WordPress theme from AppThemes and from the need as a job seeker, to find interesting and creative jobs amongst all the ad filled Portuguese job boards. I found the majority of these boards ad oriented and not people oriented.
With JobRoller and it’s built-in features I thought I could improve on the current job boards and deliver a useful job site with creative people in mind. Building the site on WordPress was another major advantage and an important decision as I could easily add extra functionality by installing new plugins or developing them myself.
With a job board framework set and a basis to start I then went on to start adding new features, correcting minor ‘bugs’ and working on the design. The final product is something I’m very proud of, and one that, I hope, can be home for very talented and creative people.
