Before the rise of video communications, when WebRTC technology was still relatively new, Monjin saw the potential in leveraging this technology to change the way companies around the world handle recruitment for and hiring. The goal was to build an online platform and create a network of experts from various industries who would be paid to evaluate candidates and students on their basic skills so that employers have access to a wide variety of pre-vetted profiles and recorded interviews. With this goal, Monjin sought to solve two critical problems in the hiring market: the time-consuming challenge of discovering talent, and logistical costs associated with face-to-face interviews. To make this platform the best it could be, Monjin needed an API platform that could serve as the foundation for the video interactions - globally, at scale, and reliably.
“Monjin is a unique platform with a global interviewers network that matches professionals and employers based on skill set by enabling video-based interactions that open opportunities for job seekers, offer economic benefits for expert interviewers and cost savings for employers,” said Abhijeet Kashyape, Founder Monjin. “Effectively, Monjin was the first-ever global web-based platform built specifically for the talent acquisition and hiring market, and we were able to build this unique platform thanks to the Vonage Video API.”
Thinking Beyond Off-the-Shelf: Building A Customized Talent Acquisition Video Platform
When the Monjin team was searching for the right video API to integrate into their platform, they faced a few challenges. Monjin needed a simple browser-based interface which would not require users - candidates or hiring managers - to download any software or applications. The solution would also need to comply with all relevant data privacy and information security laws and regulations and meet specific requirements for talent acquisition.
“As a long-time leader in WebRTC, the Vonage Video API was the right choice for us because it had a wide range of functionality needed to offer the best experience to our users on both sides, from security and privacy to session monitoring, high resolution screen sharing and recording, and reliable service to transfer and upload recorded interview files,” explained Kashyape.
Fast, Simple, Reliable Connections with Endless Possibilities
Choosing the right video API provider enabled Monjin to not only build an interview and talent assessment platform with the customized features and functionality to stand out from the competition, but one that is reliable enough to power millions of minutes of talent interviews globally.
“Implementing the Vonage Video API into our platform was seamless and quick,” recalled Abhijeet. “We’ve been supported by the Vonage team as we’ve scaled our use of the API over the years, allowing us to offer our customers reliable connections to the talent they are looking for. And the breadth of the Vonage Communications Platform allows us to offer new functionalities to our customers as well - including real time notifications via social channels like WhatsApp.”
