Crowd Select

Crowd Select Project Image

CrowdSelect was my first BuddyPress powered project. BuddyPress – the community and social extension of WordPress – brought the necessary member features to CrowdSelect platform. The purpose of CrowdSelect was to pair freelancers with contractors in a wide range of fields. Because CS would be accessed by different types of members (those looking to hire and those looking for work), it required me to build essentially two separate interfaces and experiences.

Depending on what membership level the user logged in as, a different welcome screen would be shown to flow them through the site appropriately. Freelancers were presented with a familiar job board interface, where they could submit their resumes which were only visible to the hiring contractors as well as see how many others had applied for a given position. CrowdSelect archived the perfect balance of privacy and transparency, making it an effective tool to find work and employees. Fully responsive and mobile optimized.
