Boon offers a game-changing recruiting solution that enables companies to source the best candidates by leveraging their employee networks.

The Overview

In Boon, Goji Labs created a unique platform that offered web and mobile apps to help streamline the recruitment and job search process for employers and job seekers. Boon helped to transform how these critical industries function on a day-to-day basis by providing simple, streamlined tools to all.

Developed with:      Ruby on Rails PostgreSQL React Native React



The Challenge

After working in the recruiting industry for nearly a decade, Boon’s Founder knew that referrals were key to successful job placements; Even the best companies continue to struggle with finding and attracting top talent. Recognizing the power and importance of referrals for the recruiting industry, he set out to create a platform that would give recruiters, executives, and employees alike the ability to become talent influencers. The key component? Removing the guesswork from knowing who the best candidates are for each opportunity.


The Process & Tech

Our team designed and developed a SaaS enterprise web application and a consumer-oriented mobile application using Ruby on Rails, React, and React Native. Companies can subscribe to Boon’s platform to post job opportunities and invite current employees to join. Employees can use the mobile application to explore and engage with their network, receive matches between open positions and their friends, create referrals and collect referral bounties for successful placements.


The Outcome

The end result is a technology that was dreamed up by a team of recruiters who were attempting to solve inefficiencies in their day-to-day work. Initially hacked together with custom tools and Zapier integrations, an early Boon prototype was put to the test in the trenches of real recruiting efforts for major companies. Ultimately, the true power of referral automation was realized and Boon became a reality with our support. Through semantic matching algorithms and proactive referral requests, Boon gets conversations started with the right candidates at the right time – changing the way this industry works.


I truly value Goji’s approach and the collaborative working relationship we have.
