In early August 2015, there was one job on a zob tree. Today, the zob tree is in over 8M applicants across a dozen of Indian cities. A lot has happened in between. Right from the start, the zob tree received phenomenal warmth from both candidates and local employers.
Our aim was to address a recurring problem in the job market: access to a trustworthy database of candidates in the entry level and blue collar job segments was largely restricted, and the hiring process highly disorganized. This was due to a crippling unavailability of information regarding skill benchmarks as well as job requirements. It was therefore essential to create a repository of data containing information about jobs as well as candidates in this segment.
Over the years, zob tree has evolved into an end-to-end recruitment marketplace connecting employers, consultants and job seekers for jobs across hierarchies in an organization.
We were just a few hours into our launch, our first job – a small-time real estate company in Mumbai was looking for marketers. But behind all the high-flying tech and design and pop and pixel are humans – a core set of people who blaze the trail, who think innovation when others hit indifference.
People who create solutions to problems previously thought of as impossible. People who make small individual contributions to build something truly remarkable and heart-warming. People who do when others don’t. Let’s talk people.
With the jobs, came job seekers – by the hundreds. What started as a drizzle turned into a steady stream and before we knew it, we were connecting thousands of local employers and candidates every single day. How some stories just write themselves!
Zob Tree is making all efforts to bring the same technologies and tools available to small and medium enterprises as well as individual recruiters that have so far been accessible only to the big corporates. At the same time, we are trying to overcome the various barriers that grey-collar and blue-collar job seekers are facing in the new age of recruitment.
A small piece of tech sets a thousand ripples per square pixel. A breezily responsive interface, innovative yet easy-going features, and a market-ready solution – all of these make zob tree worth preserving in our phones and pockets.
