HireSmart is a web-based Australian job portal. They provide services to both job seekers and employers, which are employer paid. Although the site has a minimalist design and is very usable on mobile devices, it has complex functionality and is linked to a large database of jobs and candidates.
HireSmart required a website with a flat design that was accessible and usable on mobile devices. In addition they needed the site to be segmented into four different areas, public, candidate, employer, site administration. The site needed to create functionality for candidate profile creation, employer job posting and payment options, site administration, and provide options for candidate job searches and employer candidate searches.
We created a flat, responsive design for usability on both mobile and desktop devices. The site is segmented into four sections to facilitate use by public users, candidates who are logged in, employers, and site administrators. Server side software was designed to facilitate database creation and retrieval of job and candidate information. We also designed a mechanism for candidate profile creation, employer job posting and payment system and incorporated the all-important job and candidate search functionality. In addition, we created a site master panel to facilitate the management of accounts by HireSmart personnel.
When I started building HireSmart, I did quite a lot of calling around to different web company’s, not to find the cheapest price, but for someone to help me build something I knew very little about. As soon as I spoke to Cameron, he didn’t talk money, he spent time explaining the ins and outs of creating a well working website, exactly what I was after.
From there on, it was very easy, he always was quick to respond, any questions I had, or any changes I needed, I never felt in the dark. Apart from the good service, I think the team did a really good job of putting the idea in my head onto a computer screen, and something people can actually use, from designing the logo, the business cards all the way to a complete website. To top it off, they were very flexible with my budget, and payment options, really easy to work withOwner, Hire Smart
