Byte Orbit, a bespoke software development company based in Cape Town, South Africa, has developed a new mobile application that could “revolutionize the face of recruitment.”


Impress Me is a video-based mobile application that allows job seekers to impress potential employers by submitting an unique video clip. The thought is that the app will not only help applicants but it will also save time for the hiring manager.

Currently this app allows for 5 positions to be posted at any one time, and it’s free. Employers can now get to better form an impression of potential candidates and determine who would be most suitable for the job before setting up first-round interviews (or phone screens).

Since the a soft launch of Impress Me, the likes of Kalahari, Price Check, RunwaySale, Groupon & RSA Web have joined to try out the platform.

In conjunction with the launch, Impress Me has a partnered with Kalahari where users of Impress Me can stand a chance to win 1 of 3 Gobii 4.5” Smartphones. To qualify all users need to do is download the app and apply for any of the positions available with a video selfie. The competition closes on 15 September 2014.

Impress Me is available on the following platforms:
