Make informed decisions when it comes to hiring or promoting a candidate, based on rich skill and aptitude insights.
In today’s ultra-competitive market, tech companies share a common problem, finding the right individuals to keep up with demand. Whether it’s internal or external recruiting, quantifying candidates is a challenging task for any company. There are competitive assessment platforms out there that help validate skill level, but none that combine that against aptitude.
The ability to accurately collect and represent aptitude and skill set levels in a single platform enables companies to better understand the potential of individuals. It provides the necessary insights to show current company competency while identifying individuals that have the ability to thrive if given the opportunity. It enables recruiters to look at things from a more data-driven perspective while having a much higher confidence rate that they are the right fit for the position.
Potential, a data-rich platform, doesn’t just take skill into consideration. It’s a tool that enables companies and recruiters to accurately make informed decisions when it comes to hiring or promoting a candidate.
We are working with Spinning Fox as part of two incubator products we’re bringing to market. We are working with their team (both design and dev) to expedite our product ideas as we scale our own operations. They have provided impressive design leadership and delivery, plus technical expertise to develop a ground up MVP build and new feature sets. Communication has always been solid, our teams have collaborated openly and established good relationships.

Being a completely new platform, this required the team at Spinning Fox to design, define and develop a solution from scratch. We used our design-led approach to understand the industry and its competitors. We knew that the key to success lay in two areas. One, the quality of the skill and aptitude questions, and two, the reporting that would be used by businesses to determine skill levels and make informed decisions. Our research identified that hiring or promoting based on skill set alone was not the favourable outcome and can hinder the overall potential of a company.
Our personas were based off customer interviews where we honed in on finding some of the key issues faced by businesses regarding upskilling and hiring. They were focused around employees who would be taking assessments, and business staff who would be leveraging the tool for key insights. Knowing the audience helped to shape the product strategy and prioritise the features we built.
To help us with the questions, we crowdsourced these from over 100 cyber security professionals and had them validated by some of the industry's leading experts.
For the reporting, we worked with data scientists to help us identify the best ways of presenting the results to support businesses in making the most accurate conclusions around team skill level and areas where training may
