#5695 new enhancement

Extend REST API to give plugin and theme devs the option of having their jobs display automatically.

There are a significant number of plugin and theme developers within the WordPress ecosystem, who do not list their jobs on

What if we extended the REST API to allow job postings on their career pages (for those who opt in) to display automatically on the site?
By having more quality jobs listed, more people are likely to check and recommend it.
Perhaps a small plugin, made available to devs for their own sites, could push this information via a cron job on their side?

Perhaps this could be done by making an oEmbed template for each job, and one for the profile of each job poster?

There doesn't appear to be any kind of index for job authors, and according to the current oEmbed it's all posted by a singular WordPress user without any other specific company feeds.


  • Add a way to view all jobs posted by a singular company (not per user maybe? but per-company?)
  • Add oEmbeds for singular jobs
  • Add a nice oEmbed for archives

For context, the jobs site has no concept of users or companies in a meaningful sense. Those values are stored as post meta.
