ABOUT THE CLIENT
Subsidiary of Smart&Geek, a mobile pure player agency, JobAroundMe has developed a recruitment application working on both iOS and Android, which grants applicants access to geolocalized job offers. Thanks to the augmented reality technology, applicants can film a building (restaurant, shop, agency) and see the related available job offers. This application also allows users to manage different stages of the employment research process.
For its commercial development, Jobaroundme contacted Pentalog for the redesign of its website www.jobaroundme.fr.
The site proposes three different application solutions:
- ATS application, which is not subject to this redesign process
- job application by email
- redirection towards the company’s Career site page
The new site must have the same features as the previous one but also some extra significant improvements such as responsive design, multilanguage option, SEO optimization and a more high-performance search engine.
Since September 2014, the Pentalog dedicated team intervening as an extension of our client’s team is based in Romania, in the Iasi delivery center. The 5 collaborators working on the JobAroundMe project are responsible for:
- designing and developing new Zend 2 applications
- testing and validation
The Pentalog project team follows the Scrum model and is made up of a Scrum Master, 3 developers and a quality engineer. Within this organization, the client Product Owner is in charge of defining the product together with our team.
