Why a WordPress.com Account Is Needed for WPJobManager.com

WP Job Manager is a service built and owned by Automattic, the same company that owns WordPress.com.

Having a WordPress.com account helps with security and authentication. It verifies that you are the rightful owner of the email address associated with your WP Job Manager account.

If you want to register on the WP Job Manager website and purchase a plan, you are required to have a WordPress.com account, but you do not need to create a WordPress site, or use any other services from WordPress.com or Automattic.

By linking your WP Job Manager account on this site to your WordPress.com account, you ensure that your chosen avatar and profile data appear consistently across different websites and services that support Gravatar, including WordPress.com.

The core WP Job Manager plugin is free to use and doesn’t require an account on this site.
