The Challenge

Smarter Hires met Knoldus to develop the intelligent hiring product as a green field development effort. this included, building the MVP, taking it to the market and investors and preparing the launch pad for the product.

Our Solution

Knoldus worked with the Smarter Hires team in San Francisco to understand the requirements and the strategy. A strategy workshop was held in the New Delhi office for 2 weeks to conceptualize the idea and divide it into sprints leading to the MVP release. The product has a unique feature of building personas for the individual who is looking for an opportunity and .the organizations who are seeking talent. The product intelligently builds the persona of the individual based on his social interactions, his prior assignments, his syndicated and crawled data. The same happens for the companies as well on the basis of their employees and other public data available. The persona's are then matched for best fits.

Currently the product is in private beta and is being used by the two larges recruitment companies in the silicon valley. The product was built using the KnolWay strategy which is a potent mix of Scrum, XP and Continuous Deployment. The MVP was done in 6 sprints and the first round of funding secured within a week of MVP release. The product is being expanded further beyond the MVP now and the Series B is just round the corner.
