Tinder style job app launches in UK
Apply with a simple & lsquo;like’ and short video pitch in a similar fashion to the popular dating app Tinder. Starting today SelfieJobs is available for jobseekers and companies in the UK after successful launches in Germany and the Nordic region. People in the UK can now apply for jobs in London or across Europe.
“We started SelfieJobs to let young people self express their job application in a way not seen before. A few bullets about your education and work history, your favourite picture from Instagram and a short video pitch is all you need to get started.” says Martin Tall, CEO and Founder of SelfieJobs. “Companies in service industries love this & lsquo;interview first’ approach because they can see and screen the applicant and opt to chat with them instead of reading through a long detailed CV. This makes the job search simple and fun for both applicants and companies while illuminating millions of hidden talents through user pitch videos across the UK and European market. Add in the popular Tinder style UI and you get a fun frictionless job app that shakes up the traditional hiring process.
The best young talent in sales and services just want to get to the interview to showcase their skills to sell, promote or provide the best customer service. Service companies need outgoing young professionals to hire in positions where self expression is the biggest or only requirement. Using this hypothesis we took inspiration from success stories around the web incl. Uber and Instagram and combined it with our own secret sauce. The result has been greatly received with over 10,000 users abroad.”
SelfieJobs was launched in Stockholm, Sweden in the end of 2014 with the slogan "Apply with a Like!" Now, about 4 months after launch companies and jobseekers are matching with great applicants across the Nordics, Germany and as of today the UK. “Simplicity has finally arrived to recruitment. This is truly a & lsquo;win win’ for both jobseekers and companies on the hunt for top talent. Time is money and it is wasted on filtering through traditional CV’s and using outdated application systems not required for this market.”

"SelfieJobs app is the first in Europe and probably the first in the world to enable jobseekers to express themselves with a video-pitch and pictures before applying for jobs with a “like” instead of a long application. This is vital since young people are bored and frustrated with current solutions. We want to become Europe's most loved jobapp for young adults by 2018. Launching today is a step in that direction and the first in traveling to the US. For companies this means there is a new site for social, selling and service minded talents and it’s www.goselfiejobs.com. The app is available on Google Play for Android, Appstore for IOS with web based dashboard management.
