ETH Juniors

Campus Interview

In Riwers we found the desired agile partner with whom we could start our project quickly and easily. Three months after the project started, the first MVP went live already.

The direct contact with the developers and the project management was very pleasant and solution-oriented. Despite a very sporty timeline we were able to meet all deadlines. The technical development was clean and modular, which provides us and our customers with a great added value.

ETH Juniors commissioned Riwers to develop a completely new web application for the organization and orchestration of the event "Campus Interview". On this day companies advertise for the best talents of the Swiss universities. Students and companies register and arrange virtual and live interviews and discussions.

Initial Situation

  • An existing web application is used to organize and orchestrate the event format “Campus Interview”, where companies and students meet for around 700 job interviews on one day.
  • The further development and maturation of this application has been partly unsatisfactory so far.
  • The existing service provider is to be replaced by a new service provider.

Challenges

  • Even while the project is still running, parts of the new solution must be transferred to live operation on schedule (MVP) so that users can start registering.
  • The demands on user-friendliness are high. A simple and lean user interface is to be designed and implemented so that the mainly non-technical end users can work intuitively with the application.
