1st Version Challenges and Problems


Based on customer's and stakeholder's feedback

  • Challenging to get started (No guided flow, for many users, was not clear what to do)
  • Complicated and not intuitive enough navigating around the product and its main functions
  • Difficulty in using the key function “Ideal Candidate” (The system requires to select of 3 Ideal Candidates to build a list of candidates)
  • The Product forces users to add a lot of an unnecessary data
  • There is too much noise on the inputs edit page
  • Takes too long to build the first list of candidates and all next edits after
  • The search and selection of candidates are not clear for many users

1st Version Flow

Selected Critical Design Priorities and Main Tasks

Re-imagine the user journey experience and general UX/UI design


  • Simplify role building process with fewer steps to build the initial model
  • Made more user-friendly and clear navigation

New candidate search experience and inputs build a structure


  • Redesign adding and editing inputs process and restructuring inputs categories
  • New clean flow for interaction with candidates

Switch to existing graphical libraries and UI components


  • Use UI libraries that are compatible with our technology stack, versus built-our own 
  • (React: Plotly, DevExtreme’s Data Grid, Material UI…)


Research and Ideation

Drafting Ideas

The main task was to reduce the number of actions and pages for building the 1st list of candidates.

  1. Simplifying the initial number of inputs and using only a one-page approach for building the role. 
  2. The "Ideal Candidate" feature became optional.
  3. Now users can tune the specific searches later, after checking the first candidate's results.


The second task was focused on improving interaction directly with candidates (candidate sorting, ranking, contacting, exporting, setting interviews...)

New section structures have been designed for the main search categories to solve the complexities of text clouds.

Which simplified navigation and editing ability.

Other improvements that were defined and improved in the process

“Exclude” and “Must-have” priority to inputs.


A complex feature that was unintuitively disjoined from the main inputs section, and nested in the additional tray. Which required a user to do the double job of entering data like titles, skills, education, companies, priority




“Exclude” and “Must-have” priority integrated into inputs. Made one universal element input (tag) for selecting special priority for each type of term, we use a specific color code for easy catching 

Candidate profile card


Low amount of data about candidates and doesn’t show some overall and Highlights information about candidates Candidate Profile Card V2




More detailed new Candidate Profile Card with the ability to customize order and view of content

Stages for Candidates


Originally the product has only one option to select /add to favorite for candidates (star button)




In the new version was added a new feature that allows users to mark candidates and allow them to separate into different groups and filtered in the candidate funnel

Final Visuals

V2 Achievements After Release




New smart workflow that works for the Novice User and Advanced Power User


Total flexibility in editing and extracting data with new search methods 


Identify highly qualified and capable candidates now in seconds


New clean flow for work with candidates


A new design environment that allows integrating new features and sub-product easier and with a native look everywhere 


Added new features like "Anonimus search", "Quick Search" "Company Search", "Candidate Portal"...
