s1jobs has been named as a finalist in the 2009 Onrec Awards in the category of Best Technical Innovation. The nomination — which is the first ever technical award nomination for s1 — recognises the huge technical advances made with the new site.
From a UI point of view, we ripped the site up and started again in 2008. Making use of the latest web techniques such as image sprites, ajax, streaming video recording and drag & drop personalisation, we developed a site which had far more functionality than the old site, while at the same time being a lot faster and more efficient (there are more details on the original launch post here).
