Tasks

eBoss is a firm player on the UK market having deep expertise in optimizing recruiting efforts. As the company was developing, it needed proficient software engineers to maintain the high level and up-to-date standards that eBoss recruitment software had been delivering since 2000. So we acted as a technical partner and also supported the project with a user’s view on the end products.

  • Any HR activity requires clear and elaborate administration tools. In a close collaboration with eBoss specialists, we were up to design and implement new admin environments for candidate search software and an applicant tracking system;
  • One of the eBoss goals was to introduce a new CV semantic search engine, which would use a wide range of synonymic phrases expanding the number of relevant results per search query. The challenge for our team was to design a high-performance database architecture to support this algorithm;
  • The eBoss software covers the most critical aspects of the recruiting workflow, from semantic candidate search to talent pool management. Our role was to optimize their products and push them to modern performance levels. That implied code refactoring as well as providing cross-platform responsiveness.

Solutions

  • The most sustainable solution was to utilize the PHP/Symfony2 framework as the main development environment. We used it to build administration tools. 
     The existing products were optimized and refactored;
  • We combined both SQL (MySQL) and noSQL (Redis) databases to implement the semantic CV search engine;
  • A responsive frontend layout is provided by HTML5, CSS3, and jQuery.
