Web Design & Development for Helpknx
Helpknx is a startup that launched in 2017 by Nan Wilkinson. Nan already a website in development for her idea but it wasn’t coming along as planned. Nan was working with a foreign web design company and she faced problems with clear communication, long turnaround times, and sloppy design.
Jawfish recommended a complete site redesign so that we could create the job board website that Nan envisioned. We saved the current, half-developed site to a subdomain (so that it could be accessed in the future is desired) but we built a brand new site from the ground up.
Here is the previous, unfinished site’s homepage:
Here is the current homepage of the website designed by Jawfish:
The design is cleaner and more professional looking. These two screenshots do not tell the full story, however. The candidate and employer profiles on the old site were disorganized:
There were also areas that did not show correctly or did not function. Here is a candidate profile on the backend of the current site:
Jawfish has also done quite a bit of custom development on the Helpknx website including:
- Building and integrating a social feed so that users can post their own news or updates (similar to Facebook or LinkedIn)
- Adding over 29,000 cities to choose from when creating a job posting
- Setting up custom job alerts
- Creating a “scoring” system for candidates and employers
Content Marketing & SEO
