"The primary challenges faced in building the solution was several-fold. First we had to define a very high availability, performant and scalable technology stack to store the millions profiles critical to our recruiter and Human Resource clients," explains Robert Keenan, CEO at HireCloud. Second, the tech-stack had to deliver as near instantaneous results as possible. The vision was for their clients to input broad search parameters and refine results repeatedly and incessantly pulling hits from the results as they required. The HireCloud team wanted to eliminate the "Submit" button and make every choice/selections options instantly return results and allow clients one-click option to place ideal results on their results list. “On top of all this, as a company, we are deeply committed to Open-Source technology and wanted to ensure we invested in tools that reflected our belief in the Open-Source community,” Robert continued.
HireCloud started using WordPress for the public face of the website, Elasticsearch for a Flexible and powerful faceted search engine that is hosted with ReactiveSearch.io. The frontend app is built with Reactivesearch UI components. Like all early stage startups, cost was an important consideration for the solution. With ReactiveSearch.io, HireCloud not only got their envisioned solution but at a very manageable costing. To support smooth execution, the ReactiveSearch.io and HireCloud development teams worked closely together to better understand the challenges of the project. Robert continues "Recruiters and HR professionals on our platform now have a super-responsive search that helps them narrow down the right people from 120M+ candidates based on a just handful of parameters." Naturally, support for such a project is an ongoing process and ReactiveSearch.io is still a crucial extension of the team at HireCloud assisting with their technological evolution.

“The result of this joint effort is an extraordinarily fast, responsive multifaceted search tools that delivers results in milliseconds,” exclaimed Robert. Beta tests to date are proving the value of the data when recruiting and HR professionals are given unbridled access to a large, up-to-date resource of qualified candidates. Robert and their team are starting to explore how these faster and more accurate results will ease the chore of candidate sourcing. HireCloud’s developing business also means that they need a search technology that can scale to fit their evolving product. With ReactiveSearch.io, they have a much more robust search experience than they could get with just Elasticsearch. The HireCloud team is also constantly looking at new ways to leverage more ReactiveSearch.io offerings to support their technology.
“In our partnership with ReactiveSearch.io, we have little doubt the future looks extremely bright.”
