Short description

Espeo with the use of Symfony2 framework we created a web-based recruitment management system called Artist.

The system, sold in the paid subscription model, allows the end clients to manage the authority level of their employees responsible for recruiting, create templates for job advertisements and create advertisements. It also enables publication through different channels and creation of applications forms for candidates. The system collects incoming applications and facilitates browsing them. Finally, it makes it possible to contact the candidates, assign them a status, and assign them to a recruitment process etc.

The implemented functions and integration with external services allow the end clients to publish ads with just one click, among others on the popular Finnish classifieds website Oikotie.fi and the website of the Finnish Ministry of Employment, either in the form of widgets that can be embedded into any website or in the form of an RSS feed.

Background

We are a large Finnish media corporation one of the TOP 5 European magazine publishers. I'm Development Manager, Team Leader at Oikotie Oy. I'm managing the production team of total 9 direct and indirect reports for the leading commercial recruitment and careers website in Finland.

Opportunity/Challenge

"The previous recruitment system no longer met the our expectations of functionality and performance. We needed a new solution that could smoothly replace the old one. Access to the system was to be sold to the end clients in a subscription model.

The end clients were to be given the possibility of comprehensive recruitment management (recruiters, advertisements, recruiting, applications, candidates). Thanks to the integration with external services the system was to enable easy publication of ads in a number of different channels to guarantee maximum viewership.

Due to anticipated system load, the client set strict requirements for the system’s performance. The subscription business model of the project and the client’s renown required utmost care of safety and infallibility of the implementation process. The requirements were to be satisfied thanks to using PHP technology chosen by the client."

Results&Feedback

During our work on the project we conducted around 260 videoconferences with Espeo, exchanged 780 e-mails, went on two several days’ workshop visits, and had around 2,500 chat conversations. This way we were kept fully informed of Espeo's work on the project and on a few occasions introduced changes to our original expectations. The first working functionality was delivered to us after 2 weeks of working on the project.
