Interactive video interview application

Shortlister approached us with an idea to radically improve the recruitment process. Rather than go straight from CV to face to face interview Shortlister asks applicants to participate in an online interview where questions are read by an avatar and the applicant's responses are recorded via their webcam. Recruiters can then review, rate and comment on each applicant’s response, shortlisting them for the next stage in the recruitment process.

Initially we helped them with the creation of an investment deck that contained wireframes, user testing and market research, which they used to secure the funding for the remainder of the project.

Over the next 3 years we worked with the Shortlister founders to build out the product - API first so we could target mobile as well as the web - into a running business.

Once the initial greenfield build was completed and the project had moved to iterative improvements and new features, we helped our client hire their own internal development team and handed the project over to them to maintain. Now in it’s 5th year of trading, Shortlister boasts global long term customers such Sky, Kraft and Yell
