Business Challenge

The business requirement was to create an app that allows Managers and HRs to hire great people fast. To achieve this, the plan was to get the existing employees to refer their friends and contacts from various social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter.


We at Volga Infotech designed and developed an IOS app that helps a Manager to put word out for a job posting in the existing employees' circle. The app then searches and gets a list of the best matches, that is, people who would be best suited for that job posting.

The Employee can then choose one or more candidates from the list and refer them to the Manager. The Manager in turn has the option to view the candidate's profile and then contact him/her directly through the app.


  • Allows Managers to enter location and keywords for the roles they are hiring for.
  • Managers can invite their current employees to refer candidates from their social networks.
  • This app implements savvy search and the power of 1 billion+ social media profiles, allowing employees and associates to curate matches and present the best to the hirer.
  • Hirers can contact the referrals right from the app, thus saving valuable time.


The client received an easy-to-use app that streamlines the process of hiring by asking trusted employees and associates for referrals. The response received by the client after the launch of the app was such that the client was more than satisfied with our work.
