Why isn't it written like جوبَ ?

Good question but I dont think you'll have one of the hyphen A-things without another letter connected to it.

Pretty much all proper names that end in an "a" sound are written with a final Alif instead of the fat7a (the little mark above the letter). The exception are feminine names of Arabic origin, which end with taa2 marbuu6a (the letter that looks like a small circle with two dots over it)
