How MetaDesign Solutions created an employment platform which would connect employers with relevant job seekers and manage their data in an effective manner.
Jobdroid is an online Employment portal based in Australia featuring an extensive set of tools which helps employers to find the most relevant applicants, especially for Blue Collar jobs. Jobdroid provides a platform which is fast, factual and transparent.
Jobdroid maintains a large database with relevant tags attached to each job listing to aid in finding jobs faster. This database is seamlessly integrated with other job websites such as 1800drivers, Gumtree, driverjobs.com.au and more.
The client already had an existing web portal which was not delivering the desired performance or results, and therefore contacted MDS to develop a comprehensive employment portal which catered to a wide spectrum of job profiles in Australia. They required an intuitive and functional web platform which could handle high volume web traffic with ease.
Jobdroid is a comprehensive job portal which caters to a wide range of job profiles. To revamp their legacy systems and ensure a smooth and fruitful user-experience, Jobdroid consists of multiple technologies working concurrently to ensure the user’s get exactly what they need from Jobdroid.
To establish Jobdroid as a premier employment portal, the client required that the platform be easily accessible on a wide range of hardware, and needed the website to be extremely responsive and intuitive on both smartphones and desktops.
To develop a responsive and intuitive front-end experience, MDS used a combination of HTML5, CSS3, Bootstrap3, Angular in MVC Framework. This ensured that the Jobdroid web portal was responsive and could scale well on mobile platforms.
Being an employment portal which catered to a large selection of job profiles, it was essential that Jobdroid be able to handle vast amounts of web traffic. To achieve this, MDS developed a robust back-end framework using C#.Net, ASP.Net 4.5, Netcore 2.1. SQL Server was used to create the Database and Redis for a NoSQL Database.

When Jobdroid contacted MDS, their existing legacy systems and databases were extremely out of date. This posed several challenges and we had to create a robust web platform from scratch.
Jobdroid’s back-end was created using .NET Core which was a new technology at the time and had no documentation. We had to create unique solutions.
The existing systems had poor performance and needed improvement to match up to requirements. A new backend was made in line with the new UX. DB performance was improved after indexing.
The platform was facing scalability issues and had a problem in coping with heavy loads. MDS resolved this by distributing problematic segments into micro processes to enhance performance significantly.
There were issues in adding new features to the platform. This was resolved by restructuring the architecture.
MetaDesign Solutions delivered a robust and user-friendly employment portal to Jobdroid. This platform was concisely integrated with other platforms and delivered significant performance improvements as required by the client. MDS Development Services have led to Jobdroid establishing themselves as a premier employment platform in Australia.
