Update: new Jobs listing page design

Written by The Trade Me Jobs team in General and Jobs at 11:30am, Wed 30 Sep 2015

A couple of weeks back we released a new Jobs listing page design to 50% of our members. We’ve looked at the results from this trial and tweaked the design based on feedback we received. Today we’re excited to roll out the final refreshed listing page design across all Trade Me Jobs listings on the desktop site.

What’s changed?
We’ve refreshed the design to ensure the important information is visible in the right places where we think users need it. It’s a cleaner, more contemporary design.

There aren’t any functional changes with the new design so if you have a job listed, you don’t need to make any changes to your listing. More...

It was really (really!) hard to choose our top picks for the Trade Me Colouring-In Competition, but we are stoked to present the winners as chosen by our in-house design team, including the talented illustrator who created the original.

You can see the winning entry below, and the runners-up and honourable mentions over on our Facebook page.


Daylight Saving kicks in this Sunday

Written by The Trade Me team in General at 8:30am, Sat 26 Sep 2015

It's that time of year again - Daylight Saving kicks in at 2:00am this Sunday, so you'll need to put your clock forward one hour.

To make sure everything ticks over smoothly, auctions due to close between 2:00am and 4:00am will be extended by two hours.

Daylight Saving will stick around until Sunday, 5 April 2016, so there's plenty of time to soak up the summer sunshine. More...

Improved search results

Written by The Trade Me team in General at 3:00pm, Tue 22 Sep 2015

We’ve been making some tweaks to search results when you do a keyword search from the homepage. At this stage we’re running it as a trial and 50% of members who are logged in will be seeing the changes.

The aim of these tweaks is to try and serve up the most relevant set of search results for you. Without getting into the technical guff, some clever cookies here at Trade Me have been working on an algorithm that ticks away in the background to deliver these results. The nature of this means we might not get it right 100% of the time, but hopefully the results you do see will be pretty close to the mark.

We’ll be monitoring how the trial goes for members and if things are looking good, it’s likely we’ll roll this out to all members in the future. Watch this space! More...
