Challenge image

To accomplish this goal, we brought together our qualified dev team to architect a system that makes skill tests simple for business owners, HRs, and candidates.

The challenge was to design an enterprise-level assessment platform that enables recruiters to:

  • Create job posts (i.e., Senior PHP Developer, Associate Java Developer, etc.)
  • Add programming aptitude tests (i.e., PHP, HTML, JavaScript, etc.)
  • Send email invites to selected candidates
  • View test results in printable PDF format

We wanted to build an app that would never miss a potential candidate.

With our process expertise and a structured approach, we worked towards creating an app with powerful technologies and solutions.

Firstly, we picked VueJS for the frontend development because it’s flexible, comes with reusable components, has detailed documentation, and can integrate with existing apps. Vue was our obvious choice.

For the backend, we chose Laravel. It offers an extremely secure user authentication and authorization. Plus, it has pre-installed templates with robust widgets that help developers create amazing layouts. Moreover, its MVC framework implements a modular architecture that makes the app high-performing and maintainable.

To help recruiters register and subscribe to this app, we incorporated the Stripe payment gateway. It supports multi-currency, assures safe transactions, and processes cards without storing card details. An excellent API further makes it a delight for developers to set up and maintain Stripe.

Next, we used SendGrid to help trigger targeted emails and notifications (e.g., email invites, job URLs, subscription emails, test completion emails, etc.). It helps maintain an open line of communication at all times. We chose this SMTP provider because it’s cloud-based, which helps send emails without the need for separate email servers. Also, SendGrid has a solid API that automatically manages errors or bounces, thereby keeping the sender's reputation at its best.

Our experts chose the email queue system to send emails to the recipients in batches instead of sending all the emails at once. The system keeps the emails in a queue and delivers them to the recipients in a step-by-step way. This eliminates the chances of system crashes, which otherwise often happens during mass mailing.

For hosting the app, we picked Amazon Web Services (AWS). It not only provides high levels of security, reliability, and flexibility; it doesn’t require IT administration as well. Moreover, AWS can easily handle huge enterprise-grade traffic without glitches.

If you want to send email invites to multiple candidates, you can upload a CSV file containing the candidate list and publish the skill test. This will help you send the skill test to numerous candidates easily.

When you create and publish tests for candidates, a public URL gets generated. Selected candidates can find this URL in their mailbox, click on it, and undertake the test.
