GENIE (formerly known as JOBDOH) is a location based mobile platform for temporary job matching. We aim to offer a global service that provides a disruptive solution for the temporary staffing market place. Designed to help employers find temporary workers, we aim to optimize the temporary staffing industry, reduce inefficiency in the current system; and facilitate quicker and easier job matches for the market.
One of the missions of GENIE is to create more tailored work opportunities for the under-served, such as the elderly, single mothers, visible minorities and young people. GENIE really aims to provide the best temporary jobs for our users who would need experience or extra income but are finding it hard to find jobs given their hectic lifestyles.
Finding the nearest job based on the map is a sub-optimal solution for geo-searching, because the nearest jobs help save travel time and transportation costs. However, by matching region-to-region data, we provide the cheapest and quickest options.
To ensure the best matches and reduce the need for manual screening, GENIE collects user data to create a rich profile and build a pattern of user behavior.
Instant Job Notification
GENIE provides up-to-the-minute and instant task notifications to users. If the system detects unread app notifications, we will also send a reminder through SMS and email, ensuring users receive the latest updates.
