Enginuity are a data-focussed organisation who are driving real change in the engineering sector. For this project, they needed to create an interactive web experience that would help people to see what careers might be applicable for them in the vaccine manufacturing sector.
Whilst they already had some research in flight to back up the required comparisons, we were tasked with making it available to users with an interactive website that would allow people to easily review data outputs.
Design and UX
We first took the existing design specification that had been provided, and put it to work for the new application. Working with an established design language is always a good starting point, and we were able to quickly build a proposed UI which felt like part of the existing ecosystem. This was important to make users feel at home in the new application.
We created prototypes using Figma to create early interactive discussion tools. We always like to use prototypes where we can, as they drive interesting questions and issues out early in the process. It's really useful for clients to be able to click through in their own time, and get a feel for how it will behave once built.
Built for scale
To ensure that the website would be scalable and performant, we utilised .NET Core microservices for the back end, building robust and secure APIs. The infrastructure was created in the Azure suite, using CosmosDB and Kubernetes, amongst other technologies.
We managed to built a platform to budget and timeframe, that's also set up for future expansion. With the planned roadmap, it was key to leave a lasting platform that would be easy to adapt.
Delightful experience underpinned with technology
Delivering a truly simple and easy experience was critical for the success of this project, and was a key measure that we identified early. It would require lots of technology underpinning the matching functionality, but we were keen to hide that away with an intuitive interface.
What we've ended up with is a really engaging web experience that is helping people explore new career opportunities.
