Solving the Job Futures App Structure
Job Futures used reinteractive's knowledge and team to supplement their internal development team to produce applications that get Australians on the job.
Job Futures’ primary goal when we engaged reinteractive was to provide our in-house development team with hands-on expert knowledge and to guide us in achieving stability and the highest quality possible for our very complex data set and web applications. That happened during a critical time of our organisation, and reinteractive hit that goal and much more. Their professional, honest and open approach continues to help us deliver and as a result, we have formed a great partnership with them.Nino Karmajana, IT Solutions Manager, Job Futures
Job Futures approached reinteractive to assist with the ongoing development and support of their internal Ruby on Rails applications, supporting their inhouse development team. The existing setup of internal applications, including the use of various government data feeds, meant that Job Futures had a very complex environment and ever-changing data sets to work with.
Job Futures had invested a lot of time and resources into their Ruby on Rails applications. They were one of the first Australian organisations to embrace Ruby on Rails as a core system for delivery of custom web applications to their member organisations. Over the years the number of applications they had in production had expanded from one to thirteen.

With this many applications, there were many opportunities to consolidate redundant code between them. Through discussions with Job Futures, it was decided to provide an internal API that would allow for the removal of redundant code.
reinteractive's developers helped determine a path to provide an internal API allowing for consolidation of multiple sets of code into a single location. The completion of this provided for a much cleaner and simpler way to maintain systems, with changes in the core code base being restricted to only one location.
Job Futures requested the professional knowledge of reinteractive to help them build a new internal team. A reinteractive developer came to each hiring interview to help assess the quality of the new staff. They provided expert technical advice on the ability of each prospect.
By using reinteractive in the hiring process, Job Futures management was better able to assess the ability of the new staff and improve the quality of their internal team hires.
With the internal API completed, reinteractive was then tasked with helping expand the existing applications to handle new data sets as required.
Instead of working in isolation, reinteractive worked closely with the internal team. This allowed us to quickly implement the features requested, while also keeping the internal team abreast of the changes, allowing the reinteractive developers to pull out smoothly when the time came.
Rewriting ABC's Online Store; On Budget
ABC Commercial approached reinteractive in April 2011 with a daunting requirement; to recreate the ABC Shop Online and launch by the end of October that year. Daunting or not, we knew we were up to the task and began work immediately!
