About the Client

The client is a leading provider of online, cloud-based recruitment management solutions for human resources departments. Their applicant tracking solution helps businesses find, qualify, and hire the best applicants. The solution streamlines the hiring process through a powerful tracking system enabling hiring teams to track, evaluate and collaborate on each open position and applicant.

Business Challenge

The client was operating on a legacy technology stack with performance and scalability limitations. To serve their clients with a modern, cloud-based hiring solution, they decided to transform their applicant tracking system into a SaaS offering. This envisioned cloud-based platform would offer a feature-rich, high-performance recruitment solution on a SaaS pricing model, designed to cater to businesses with up to 3,000 employees.

Several unique features were planned by the client to improve the recruitment experience, such as:

  • Ability to broadcast job openings to popular internet job boards and pre-evaluate candidates with screening questions
  • Module to manage on-boarding of new hires, as well as integration with third-party services for background screening, assessment testing and payroll services
  • Revamp internal management portal to administer many client deployments

The client engaged Silicus to help build and deploy the solution based on a previously developed early-stage prototype. All the updates would need to be developed, tested, and deployed live, without affecting customer account operations.
