Dice wanted to break away from internal constraints and create a new experience for their customers. However early ideas to completely redesign the web application were met with numerous business and technical challenges. Change on the web would have to be an evolution, rolled out over time. Product, design and data science turned to the mobile app as their proving ground.
Mobile first design led the way for the next generation of applications at Dice. Ideas seeded in a small screen, grow into features that stretch across multiple platforms. We build, test and iterate on mobile. Ultimately verifying features and design patterns before bringing them to the web. To unify the experience across platforms, a design system was created. Individual UI elements from each platform were combined into a universal UI kit.
Our goal is to evolve the job board into a next generation career platform. As with any good project, It all hinges on the user and solving for their needs.
