Job would have been living in the Peleg - Terah cohort as the mean lifespan of those five generations was slightly over 200 years (Nahor - whose name means charred/scorched/disturbed - was an outlier).

This would place Job in the pre-Abram era and therefore one of the early patriarchs and a non-Hebrew, though a believer in YHWH/the Almighty.
