A start-up in the recruitment industry, Farosian, was looking for a way to automate how it can search social media profiles in determining the risk profile of persons applying for a job. Tangent Solutions with a reputation of building applications that leverage modernised cloud compute won the opportunity to deliver a truly innovative solution.
Sifting through a candidate’s social media postings can be time-consuming. And though one can gain many indicators as to what type of person the candidate is through their social media postings, it does not tell the whole story. The client wanted to delve deeper into a person’s risk profile to also see what type of other people’s posts that particular person liked or commented on. Additionally, what were the groups the user belonged to and were these groups considered risky. It wanted to compile a better risk profile of that person, especially if that person was applying for a high-profile position in a company.
Furthermore, the company wanted to ensure that nothing from the candidates’ past would embarrass the company in the future. It is about analysing a person’s behavioural traits from their actions on social media platforms and then presenting these behavioural traits to their end customer to determine whether they are suitable or not for the position and/or employer.
How we helped
Due to the massive quantity of data on the internet, finding all potentially relevant information on candidates is beyond the capability of most companies. Additionally, providing the solution developed by Tangent Solutions requires the compute power and ability to scale of Azure to ensure the searches are still executed in the time required to deliver business value. The Farosian project and technologies used are a text book example of how the power of the cloud can unlock innovation and empower businesses.
