Replace the lungs while the patient keeps breathing

OutSystems magic to upgrade core processes for a recruitment application

Remco Dekkinga

Director OutSystems
“We’re using OutSystems to create an application that’s going to be used by every recruiter in a Dutch nation-wide temp agency. The app will help them find jobs suited to their candidates and vice versa.”
Sounds like a big deal.
“It is… the project is to replace one of the client's core systems. ‘Searching for candidates and matching them to jobs’ is what they do. The company was built on this exact process. It's like surgery with the patient still awake: everything should keep breathing, while you work to replace the patient’s lungs.”

And you? What’s your role here?
“I’m an OutSystems developer: upgrading this client's Talent Management System has been one of my projects for a while now. I know their business processes pretty much by heart .”

"We’ve added integrations to numerous databases, REST API's and external systems. HADOOP is involved, and Oracle… also SQL Server, RabbitMQ, Google maps API, Google Calendar API..."

What about the technology. Is it complex?
“Reasonably so. It isn’t the most complex thing we’re doing at LINKIT, but it is complex in the sense that there’s a lot of functionality to keep track of. We’ve added integrations to numerous databases, REST API's and external systems. HADOOP is involved, and Oracle… also SQL Server, RabbitMQ, Google maps API, Google Calendar API...”

What have you achieved so far?
“After three months we’ve now gone live with the first group of job categories as well as with the first teams. The months to come should see us integrating the management reporting function, outfitting the new system with a better UX, as well as expanding functionality to automatically find candidates that optimally fit a new job request – fairly critical, as you’ll understand. And many more milestones to hit…!”

"The teams on both sides are very cooperative: everyone wants this project to succeed."

Enough to do, I see. Are you having fun?


“The teams on both sides are very cooperative: everyone wants this project to succeed. The technology used and the integrations needed in this project are giving us deeper insight into new technologies. Tech we might also use in future projects. I’m learning while doing, which is always nice.”
