StartWire intro

StartWire

Apply Faster. Hear Back Sooner

About

StartWire is a service that allows job seekers to organize applications and get automatic status updates from employers via SMS and email. It is powered by a team of recruiting industry veterans, job search experts, world-class technologists, and forward thinking investors all unified by a simple mission: to radically improve job search.

StartWire - a game-changing Internet job search organizer - was launched in early 2011. It is aimed at closing the “résumé black hole” by providing job seekers with automatic application status updates from thousands of employers. StartWire also provides a suite of tools that streamline the job search process from recommendations on where to apply and friends who can help, to status indicators of your chances of getting a call based on your application date, the age of the job, and industry benchmarks.

They are able really to deliver. It's not just about few checkboxes in a product plan. It's about building and delivering product that is meeting market need. A lot of people when they look at outsource relationships immediate focus is on cost. We approached in a different way. It's all about quality of output.

Involvement

Railsware team has helped StartWire aggregate and provide up-to-date information on an applicant’s status from various company application tracking systems. We have also enabled the system to supply targeted job recommendations based on user preferences and a map of people the job seeker is connected with on Facebook and LinkedIn.

Railsware has crafted the UI, back-end, integration with social services and applicant tracking systems.
