Industry: On-demand grocery delivery services
Founded by Joel Sng, he saw it fit to combine the mission of providing job opportunities with online grocery delivery. To end consumers, honestbee is just a simple same day grocery delivery site. But to Joel and his team, honestbee is more than that. honestbee is providing income opportunities to their thousands of concierge shoppers and deliverers.
honestbee needed an all-in-one hiring dashboard to streamline their offline on-boarding and interview flow.
Business Challenge
In its early days, the idea of honestbee sounded too good to be true, even to its concierge shoppers: you get paid for shopping. But as the team spread the word about their business model, honestbee grew explosively, quickly becoming the go-to platform for on-demand grocery delivery.

With thousands of positions to staff and manage, honestbee needed an all-in-one hiring dashboard to streamline their offline on-boarding and interview flow.
