An employers guide to posting a job on OfferUp

Posting a job on OfferUp — how to get started

When trying to find qualified candidates, especially in hard-to-fill roles, finding the right channel to post your jobs can be challenging. Moreover, getting access to channels that have a large and growing local user base is even more so. As the nation’s leading mobile marketplace, OfferUp is here to help. Businesses can now post jobs directly to OfferUp’s dedicated jobs feed. 

To post a job, follow the steps below:

  1. Open your preferred web browser and go to our website at 

  2. Create an account or log in to your existing OfferUp account. 

  3. Click Post a Job.

  4. Next, complete the Job Overview page. This is where you will include details such as the job title, location, description, and more. Once you are finished, click Next

  5. Review your job listing to make sure it’s free from any errors. Once you have confirmed all the information is accurate, click OK

    1. NOTE: Please make sure you review your listing carefully as you won’t be able to edit it once it’s posted.  

  6. Select your preferred Payment Method, agree to the Terms of Service, and click Confirm Purchase

Once completed, your listing will be live in the jobs feed within a few hours. It’s as easy as that! 

Based on customer preference, all job listings must be created via the OfferUp website ( However, once your listing is approved it will be visible in the jobs feed on both the website and our mobile app. 

What information do I need to create a job listing? 

When creating your listing, here are the details you’ll need:

  • Job title

  • Job location (include the zip code)

  • Detailed job description

  • Job category (such as customer service, hospitality, or healthcare)

  • Employment type (full-time, part-time, or gig work)

  • Company name (adding the company logo too is a nice touch)

  • Website URL that links directly to the application process

In the weeks and months ahead, we will be adding more listing fields including benefits, salary and more to help you showcase your listing. 

Providing detailed information in your listing allows job seekers to make informed decisions during their job search, plus it will help users find your job when they search the feed for open roles that match their goals and aspirations. 

How can I check to make sure my job is live in the feed?

After posting your job, it can up to a few hours to show up in the feed. You can always visit “My Jobs” by logging in to see your listing, or go to the search menu in the app or on the web, and search for your job listing by its title or company name. Note, job listings are shown by location so be sure to check that you have the correct location or zip code for your search!

How long will my job listing stay up?

Once your job listing has been posted, it will be live in the feed for 30 days from your date of purchase. After this time, it will close and be removed from the feed. Expired job listings will remain on your private My Jobs page for you to reference, however, they cannot be reposted to the public jobs feed. 

If you have a listing that you closed or is expired, and you still want to continue promoting the job, you can create a brand new listing that will go live in the jobs feed for an additional 30 days. 

How do applicants apply to my job?

Job applicants will be able to search for local job openings on OfferUp’s website or in the app. Once they find a job they want to apply for, they will apply to your job using the method you prefer - website, phone, or email. 

Where do I get information about bulk posting or industry-specific offerings?

Direct posting is available to any business entity that has an open role. For employers who are looking to fill 50 positions, or want to learn more about posting in bulk or industry-specific offerings, please contact us by completing the form here.
