How to post a job without the need of an applicant tracking system

Applicant tracking systems are a great thing, but for early stage companies under 20 employees all the bells and whistles of a typical ATS may be overkill.  With a good blog platform, you can use the 'Apply with Linkedin' plugin and get a functional apply now process that emails the resume directly to the designated hiring manager.

Example:
