Relaunching after Pivoting

On March 2021, and after almost two years of development, I launched found.dev. I had a lot of expectations on it, but as it happens with most of the new launches, it was a complete failure.

Even though the software was working good and had enough features, it seemed like absolutely no one had any kind of interest in the product, at all. After several months of trying different approaches on how to get users to try and use the product, I gave up.

I didn't work on the project for a few months and stopped to think about all errors I had done: no marketing plan at all, no clear roadmap, diffuse sales pitch, etc... The product was, in my opinion, good, but I just didn't know how to sell it. Or worse, the product was good, but no one needed it.

In December 2021, I decided to take on the project again and completely transform it into a new thing. Something way simpler, based on the feedback I got from my first try: a job board. But not a normal job board like the other thousands of job boards out there, based on a specific language, framework, or tool, but a job board for having them all!

Today, after a few weeks of work, I have completely remade the product and I have just launched it on Product Hunt: https://www.producthunt.com/posts/found-dev-2-0

I would appreciate any feedback :)
