Your personal assistant to aid you in hiring right person for your local jobs


The project was introduced by a couple of my friends for their startup.

They already had the idea and background study ready for this project.

My job was to create prototypes, design, and flow for the app.

The colour schemes and logos were given by the client.

About Project

Hiring the right person for a job is a big task. Things have been complex due to the covid 19 situation. There is a huge risk that an employee might leave his current job thus leaving the business dry. The Delo app helps to hire employees easily.

Secondary Research

COVID-19 Impact

One of India’s largest tech platforms for blue-collar workforce management, Betterplace, has launched its yearly jobs report. The total jobs lost due to COVID-19 are estimated at over 10 lakhs while the income loss is pegged at Rs 2467 crore per month.

The report, which is based on the data from the last 5 years of over 1000 companies, 20,000 pin codes, 80 lakh employees, gives insights into the ground realities, pandemic impact concluding with the path to recovery.

  • Overall demand for jobs in 2020 would be 14 lakhs

  • The gig economy will lead to 80% of overall demand

  • Demand is at 70% of 2019 levels



Corona pandemic has shaken the world and shattered many industries. Employees (especially migrant workers) were displaced. This lead to a huge hole in the job market and employers found it difficult to find appropriate candidates to hire. The same goes for an employee who finds it difficult to get a new job. The main challenge was to reduce the gap between the employee and the employer.

Market Study

Most common Job seeking and providing apps like Linkedin, Naukri, Glassdoor, etc is focused on white-collar jobs and their penetration to hyperlocal space is very less to almost nil. This creates a space for a business to exist in hyperlocal space and thus Delo.

Hypothesis generation

  • Simple and intuitive for the users to understand and use

  • Building a go-to applications for local jobs

  • Reducing the gap between job seekers and providers

  • Removing the middle man from hiring a candidate

User Research

Conducting user research helps in understanding the user needs, experiences, behaviors, and goals. Creating personas helps us to step out of ourselves. It helps to recognize that different people have different
requirements and expectations, and also helps to identify to whom we're designing for​.
