Product: Crowdsourcing Executive Recruitment Platform for Responsive Web

Client: Sl8z Inc, Washington DC, USA

Introduction

SL8Z is a web platform for crowdsourced executive recruiting. Seasoned executive recruiters from around the globe can quickly and efficiently source, assess, and present qualified candidates for company’s leadership level positions.

SL8Z uses the primary concept of crowdsourcing by providing employers with a platform connecting them to a robust community (“crowd”) of pre-qualified, experienced, independent executive recruiters. Instead of relying on the recruiting resources of  a single search firm, employers can leverage the collective recruiting horsepower of scores of recruiters – tapping into multiple candidate databases reaching wider pools of talent!

Sl8z is a venture of Glenn Fox who has been the Ex-VP of HR at both AOL and Microsoft. He brings seasoned recruitment leadership and a lot of experience onto sl8z for its marketing and user acquisition.

Technical Challenges Overcome

Sl8z had a multi page form which would not allow users to proceed to next section of the form until some of the mandatory fields in the previous section were filled. User could then browse back and forth within sections to fill the optional fields at any time. Each section had to load seamlessly without giving the user feel of a page refresh. There were server level validations to be handled along with Rich text editing at the same time. There were extremely large number of fields being captured in the form across 5 pages.
