Preburner

Know who you’re interviewing before the interview.

You can build incredibly custom and beautiful online job applications that allow you and your team to know the candidates like never before. A job application builder from the 21st century!

Add power to the front-end of your business.

Preburner is much more than a beautiful job application builder. It adds the ability to collect short video responses from candidates so that you can get to know their personalities before the interviewing process. It makes it exciting and fun for the applicant– and your team will understand the applicants personalities… the one thing that doesn’t show up in a resume.

Features that make Preburner awesome.

A better way to build online job applications

Preburner provides you with an intuitive interface to build out the questions you would ask candidates. You can easily build out all of the regular input fields, and then you can begin asking more in-depth questions using video or types options. Then you can decide how you’d like the applicant to respond.

All of your candidates belong to you.

You can publish the magic button on your own website or direct candidates to a landing page that you build inside of Preburner. Either way, you advertise for the job in the places you like best, and have your potential applicants click a link where they can click your application’s smart “apply now” button.

Reviewing candidates is actually fun.

Once the application is submitted, you’ll receive a notification so that you can easily see all of the information that the candidate provided, and even begin rating the candidate for how you think they would fit for the job.

HR. Turbocharged.

In addition to helping you and your co-workers to better decide which applicants to offer an interview, Preburner’s automated follow-up engine allows for specific follow-up sequences to be timed and sent out, based on the status you set for each applicant’s profile.

Follow-up like you always wanted.

Preburner makes it so easy to keep your karma good. By simply changing the status of each applicant, Preburner will automatically, move the applicant to the right list and stop any follow-up that was running and begin following up in the way that was previously setup for that campaign. You can even edit future scheduled emails from the normal template to be custom for that applicant if you want.

Hold your leads accountable.

With Preburner, when you advertise a job opening on your favorite job board, you send all of your potential candidates to your “Apply Now” button and Preburner will track which job boad is sending you the most and the best qualified candidates.

Try out a demo application.

This is an example of the button that you could install on your website with a simple copy and paste of a code snippet, or you could just use the landing page provided by Preburner for you to make customizations to.

Once you begin sending applicants to the page with this button just like you would with an online application form, this is the experience they would have. Go ahead and try it out!

Note: This should be done on a laptop or desktop computer, not a mobile device.

Job Application Builder FAQ’s

Will my price go up?

Only if you wait to sign up.

We hate price increases… and we guess you do too. We have always done everything we can to reward the early adopters who joined us when we were much, much smaller. As our software grows and becomes more powerful it will inevitably become more expensive. Our answer to that, is to treat our new users more as investors towards the big picture than anything else. As an investor in helping us to change the world, we guarantee to lock your price into the current price, and even though our prices will increase over time; once you sign up, they will never increase for you. Just another way we want to say “Thank you!”

Is my data secure?

Yes. And here’s why.

We take great pride in hosting on awesome servers provided by Amazon.com because they have the ultimate in server performance and security. and Amazon keep redundant backups of all data over multiple locations to prevent the remote possibility of data loss. We encrypt the data on Preburner using the AES-256 standard, which is the same encryption standard used by banks to secure customer data. Encryption for storage is applied after files are uploaded, and we manage the encryption keys. ResponsiBid uses Amazon S3 for data storage. Amazon stores data over several large-scale data centers. According to Amazon, they use military grade perimeter control berms, video surveillance, and professional security staff to keep their data centers physically secure. You can find more information about Amazon’s security at the Amazon Web Services’ website. While we’re very confident in our technology, we recognize that no system can guarantee data security with 100% certainty. For that reason, we will continue to innovate to make sure that our security measures are state of the art, and we will investigate any and all reported security issues concerning Preburner’s services or software. For a direct line to our security experts, report security issues to security@symphosize.com.

Building Blocks

Buy our developers’ and coaches’ time by the hour. We can help you implement Preburner and walk you through the setup process. Typically 2-4 building blocks is enough to setup your whole account and customization.

How do I get it ALL setup?

Set aside an hour a day for 2-3 days.

We don’t recommend setting it all up at once. We do recommend that you follow the tutorials that we have provided for you, so you will understand how everything works together. The system can customize to your company’s individual needs, so even though we provide you with all of the necessary starter text, you will still need to adjust the wording and customize the videos to your company. Since you are the one most familiar with your company’s needs, you will input your information and videos into our system and your voice will resonate with your applicants.

So take your time to look through all the builders and follow the tutorials we provide you so that you have the most awesome system ever!

Why does this work so well?

There are 2 main reasons:

Your application will collect the information that it should and then run with it. The whole purpose of an application is for you to get information about an applicant, so you can determine whether you like them and would like to bring them in, for an interview. Most text-based applications do a pretty awful job of giving you that information. Through our unique video-based application software, you can get to know your applicant, before scheduling an interview. The system will use the information you provide to make your life easier.

You’ll make better hiring decisions. By allowing multiple team members review an applicant’s video answers, you’ll be able to make better collaborative decisions than you could in real-time during an interview.

If I decided I want to pay for this, how am I going to make my money back?

Tony Hsieh of Zappos.com told Inc.. Magazine that bad hires have “cost over $100 million dollars over Zappos’ history.” We believe that by helping you make better hires, we will save you money – not just in the short term, but in the long term, as well. You’ll make your money back in at least these 4 ways:

Less wasted time. Scheduling and holding interviews takes a lot of time, especially when applicants don’t even bother to show up. With Preburner, you’ll only have to schedule interviews with the applicants you KNOW you’re interested in, so you’ll waste less time.

Communicate company culture. One of the most important aspects of the onboarding process is communication company culture to the new hire. If they don’t understand the culture from early on, they’ll be out of sync. Our unique video-based application allows you to ask video questions and receive video answers. This will allow you to be better impart elements of your company culture from the very beginning.

Ensure collaboration. A lot is going on during a job interview. You’re asking questions, trying to listen to answers, pay attention to body language and demeanor, all at the same time. With Preburner’s video-based application, you and your team will have time to watch an applicant’s answers multiple times, take notes, and make a better decision together on whether to bring them in for an interview.

Make better choices. Information is power, and when you’re hiring someone, every little bit of extra information can help you make the right decision. By seeing someone’s demeanor as they answer a question, you will be able to get much more information than you would through a normal text-based application.

Why do I need this?

If you are hiring people, then you are making decisions that have a huge impact on your company’s health and bottom line. If you’re interviewing applicants without Preburner then you are not getting to know them as well as you could be.
