In February 2020, to strengthen the security of our API, we deprecated API Authentication via Query Parameters and the OAuth Application API to avoid unintentional logging of in-transit access tokens. In the coming months, we'll be removing these endpoints and authentication flow according to the following schedule:

OAuth Application API

Please refer to this blog post on migrating to the replacement endpoints.

Today we are announcing the deprecation of GitHub Jobs and, on August 19th, will sunset the site entirely. Over the past year, we've seen that most of the positions listed on GitHub Jobs are already posted elsewhere, and most developers who use GitHub are looking elsewhere. To best serve the GitHub developer community, we will be sunsetting the site.

The deprecation and shutdown of GitHub Jobs will follow this timeline:

  • April 19, 2021: Every page on GitHub Jobs will display a banner indicating the deprecation and shutdown dates and linking to this post.
  • May 19, 2021: New job postings will no longer be accepted by GitHub Jobs.
  • June 9-10, June 29 – July 1, July 20-22, August 2-6: The JSON and Atom APIs will brownout so they will return only an error message indicating the deprecation and shutdown dates and linking to this post.
  • August 19, 2021: https://jobs.github.com will redirect to this blog post.
