Industry/Use Case


    This company is a global e-commerce marketplace that connects more than a million subscribers with local merchants by offering activities, travel, goods and services in more than 28 countries. The idea for was created by former CEO and Pittsburgh native, Andrew Mason. In April 2010, the company was valued
    at $1.35 billion. A Pan-India online marketplace platform, this company remains a minority stakeholder in the company.


    No one wants to dwell on the negative. But, as with most separated companies in the midst of a dynamic marketplace, a completely transformed world of recruiting often appears on the horizon.

    A. The organization largely made their hiring decision based on traditional pen and paper assessments. This proved to be time-consuming and highly cost inefficient.

    C. While they did seek a shift to online assessments, they faced an unavailability of secure and effective platforms for the task
