Why someone should join us?
We are a bunch of passionate guys determined to make it a difference. Believe in us & our dream and let's together make it big. We can't promise that the journey would be easy or smooth but be rest assured that you'll have a hell of a ride and at the end of the tunnel you'll come out a better man.

Who are we?
We are 3 stupid guys who have come together to start Zobtree. A brief about the 3 of us:
1. Mayank Jain - IITD + IIMA + EIR (Smile)
2. Nikhil Vij - IITB (CS) + Morgan Stanley
3. Raghav Jain - IIT-BHU + J.P.Morgan

What is Zobtree?
Problem Statement: 
- Zobtree wants to solve the problem of highly broken/manual employee referral process because of which a company ends up not receiving a lot of relevant referral applications 
Idea of Solution: 
- They want to leverage technology (web/mobile) to create a web/mobile product connecting companies, employee and employee's friends. 
- E works at Accenture. E's friend F is looking out for a job. F is a so-so friend of E. Accenture has a job opening that F might be interested in. 
Used Case: 
- E doesn't know which friends might be interested in the job-opening. He does nothing about it. If a friend approaches him, he refers him. 
- F does not know there is relevant job opening for him at Accenture. Also, E is not that great a friend that he will connect personally over a call/chat. So, F never connects personally.F never gets to know about the job opening. E never refers F.
