As mentioned back in this post, I helped to build Job Bounty Hunter. So, I was quite pleased to see one of my own architecture diagrams appear on this Amazon Web Services blog post.

So, since that particular diagram is now publicly available, I might as well present it here - I did create it, after all ;)

JBH Architecture

As you can see, we use a number of Amazon Web Services - including EC2, S3, and CloudFront.

I quite like the overall architecture - some might think it is a little bit of overkill, and indeed it is at the moment, but my boss and I both believe strongly in architecting applications for scalability from day one :)

JBH chart

Job Bounty Hunter (or JBH, as I like to call it) is a job recruitment advertising service with a twist - it's kind of a blend between traditional job advertisement boards such as, and a distributed embedded advertising services such as Google AdSense. But while embedded advertising services work by clocking up lots of little micro-payments for general exposure and click-throughs, JBH advertisements each offer cash bounties of hundreds (or even thousands) of dollars to be paid out to the site that a successful applicant clicked through.
