GitHub is a social coding platform that enables developers to efficiently work on projects, connect with other developers, collaborate and generally “be seen” by the community. This visibility also extends to prospective employers and HR personnel who may use GitHub to learn more about a developer’s skills and interests. We propose a pipeline that automatizes this process and automatically suggests matching job advertisements to developers, based on signals extracting from their activities on GitHub.
