Remember your final months in college, when you were about to make one of the most impactful decisions of your life when you were deciding on the first job you would apply for? Shortlist serves as a personal coach to make more informed decisions.
We partnered up with Crossbridge mid 2016 with the aim to envision a digital future for their company. All options were on the table. Key heuristics we carried with us throughout:
So we got to work...
Over the course of 10+ meetings we got ideas flowing. An inspirational time span followed during which everything was possible and no reality checks were in place just yet. We conceptualised a general strategy, a business approach, the product positioning, go-to-market and a general project methodology.
5 specialised tests enable you to gain insights into your talents, interests, main drivers and skills.
Digital job coaching will guide you to design your own fulfilling career.
A personalised overview of jobs and corporate cultures in line with your profile.
The basis of Shortlist is a complex algorithm. Our objective was to simplify this complexity to the maximum extent. Both from an operational and technical perspective we optimized efficiency
We set up multi-disciplinary teams in geographically-dispersed business locations. We focus on leveraging the benefits of Agile Development principles on a global playing field.
Our software delivery team took full-cycle ownership from application logic to performance monitoring: build & run. A single project team was responsible for the development, infrastructure, installation, testing, packaging, deployment and bug fixing. Our philosophy of continuous delivery kept all stakeholders aligned throughout the process.
Building the application layer on top of the database infrastructure. Front- & back-end code development based on a standardised framework and internal reviewing mechanisms. We handle a one-click deploy philosophy during which all automated tests need to get passed.
Capturing functional requirements that are in-line with the business objectives. Making sure these are translated into our SCRUM methodology process. We focus on regular (pre)releases to ensure that features keep moving in the right direction and all stakeholders remain aligned.
We write automated tests for all aspects of the platform. Continuous testing and continuous integration (CI) ensures reliable releases to staging or live versions. Performance monitoring tools are configured as an additional assurance that the whole system is stable.
