We have built a job portal that connects students and graduates with top companies for internships, freelance and full-time job opportunities in the UAE region. We have provided design, front-end and back-end development for this project.
The existing version of the website (former InternsME) no longer met the expectations of its users and founders.
We were excited to welcome the creation of a new project that would make a significant impact on many young people. We knew that our development team had to take a holistic approach in solving the problem.
Since launching in 2012 (formerly as InternsME), the startup has extended its services from intern recruitment to volunteering, part-time jobs and graduate jobs. With more than 150,000 registered students and graduates Oliv helps companies grow their teams with the brightest young talent in the region so that they can become more successful. Now, Oliv is a bridge between the youth and regional employment opportunities.
Behind the scenes
We’ve been working together since October 2017 and the new version of the platform went live in April 2018. During that time we had the pleasure to work with the extremely committed Product Owner. He was accustomed with the Scrum methodology, so we could get started quickly and co-operate smoothly. Despite the differences in time - with the working week in UAE being Sunday to Thursday - we were able to efficiently run sprints. We were constantly in touch via Slack.
