I'd put in the effort to navigate this thing because it's interesting, creative and novel. Functionally though? A nightmarish scroll hell.
This almost defeats their own competitive advantage—but I'll wait to see how they implement creative-commons photos before avoiding the site altogether.
To me "team" doesn't mean an entire org, but sub-divisions within it (product, sales team A, sales team B, etc) with maybe a way to share certain content broadly.
There are actual Stanford iOS development course available on iTunes. It's a legit development course, though, and assumes you understand what functions, variables and methods/classes are.
Terrific review. One thing — there's no way a global corp like Apple is getting away with inaccessible light grey on a dark grey background for core feature copy like Dann preferred. (it did look nice, though)
In my org design sits in product (product design). These designers work within engineering teams directly, and have regular sync ups with each other via 1 large standing review period, bi-weekly retrospectives and twice-per-week standups. The process here is well defined and highly collaborative. PM & design work on solutions together (2 designers + 1 PM per unit) and everyone reports to the Chief Product Officer.
Marketing has a separate design team. We realize design should probably be its own sub-org but haven't yet made the investment to switch it to cross-functional.
So what's the benefit of doing this on the new platform instead of, say, slack? Or a corporate account for an iPhone, etc? I should also mention that 10 phone screens per day is actually really good. Buy that recruiters a tea or coffee.
It would be nice to have shared chat to see the history of a conversation. Other apps do that too, but not well.
Putting aside the snarky comments about the usefulness of this app... it's not clear to me based on the website how this fits in to the actual funnel a candidate would flow through and a recruiter would manage — are recruiters requiring candidate download an app/chat? Are they giving candidates a phone number? How are these candidates actually integrated in to the funnel itself? The website does a good job of stoking interest in benefits with clever copy... but doesn't link them back to any specific feature(s) to get the job done.
Private reactions is a cool and novel feature. I haven't seen this done before. (maybe intercom?) It's an interesting twist on something enterprise-suite software typically does... but not in a delightful way *cough Jobvite
Honestly, just return results for the keywords entered by latest to oldest. The search returns things that are old and seems to not index more recent stuff as well. Or just not return things that relevant at all.
Date bucketing may help, but it's also an indication of a return failure (search -> result -> expectation not met -> ok i'll try filter). There is a 0.1% chance someone will remember who posted an article.
It's not clear to me at what level features and benefits need to be tied together. For example w Apple Pay they very clearly demonstrate the ease of paying with the fingerprint... they state the benefit then showcase a feature that tells that story.
To me this is the balance between the two sides. In this case they needed the feature to showcase the benefit, too.
