The product

Cuban.Engineer is a platform dedicated to talented engineers recruitment. To do so, it gathers info from sources as Stack Overflow, GitHub, and LinkedIn to build a profile for each user registered. The goal is having a strong talent pool to easily match great people with great projects.
