ZINDA

Super simple hiring

Zinda provides a constant stream of local, qualified and referenced staff for hospitality and retail positions.

My role on this project was to update the process prospective applicants go through when entering their personal and professional details.

What’s your work history?

Zinda makes it super easy to apply for jobs with one click, but something that was missing from the application process was comprehensive work history.

The whole idea behind Zinda is simplifying the application and recruitment processes, so we wanted to introduce this idea as non-intrusively as possible. We did this by keeping input fields to a minimum, replacing the typical ‘what were your responsiblities field’ with a fun interactive icon selection screen.

Uploading your RSA

In Australia, it is now mandatory to hold a current accredited Responsible Service of Alcohol RSA Certificate if you intend to intend to work in a position that requires you to serve alcohol.

Previously Zinda asked applicants to input their RSA number: a method that was difficult to validate and easy to fraud from the applicant’s perspective. We needed to introduce a more secure way of entering RSA details without disrupting the application flow too much.

By uploading a photograph, the RSA number can be immediately checked against both the applicant’s name and the date acquired. I utilised a pre-defined camera template to guide users towards uploading clear and consistent RSA images.

What I learned

Since Zinda was already on the app store and loved by its users, I found it an interesting challenge to introduce new features without comprimising the essence of the app. Making design changes for both iOS and Android also provided interesting challenges. For instance, the iOS app utilises the entire screen whereas the Android app restricts screen space via the header. As a result, I had to be both attentive and pragmatic when it came to introducing new UI elements.
