Developer-friendly job search. The tooling

It is quite interesting to me to see how software job market works in the Netherlands from an active candidate’s point of view. Unfortunately one great journey has almost ended and there is a firm incentive to find something at least as good. Having my current job through StackOverflow Jobs, I intended to keep using what proved to work, like marking the profile active, entering python -django -sysadmin into the search field, adding relevant filters and subscribing to the search. That, as such, of course works, but it looks it is not the most popular software talent recruitment service that Dutch companies use. And many companies are still quite happy to pay 20% of the gross year salary per new hire to the volume-oriented keyword-matching salesmen, colloquially referred as recruiters.
