Lume is a platform directed at nursing professionals seeking job openings across the US. It works as a type of Glassdoor for nurses that integrates employee reviews, compensation data, and job recommendations to provide users with a curated list of positions at trustworthy institutions. Lume was founded in 2019 and backed by Y-Combinator and aims to grow into a trusted resource for nursing professionals across the country.
To bring this product to market, the company needed to create a platform where users could browse, filter, and apply for jobs all in one place. Torii Studio collaborated with Lume’s design and product team to develop this highly-complex interactive web experience in record time.
Lume’s proposed design required a strong framework to support the highly interactive features that the company wanted in the platform. We were tasked with building this framework from scratch plus creating several complex features such as a Nurse Dashboard and a Map Experience.
To accomplish this, we established a process and resources that allowed us to speed up the development and prototyping process, all while producing high-quality code and maintaining UI/UX best practices.
Our team had to work under time constraints to develop functional and usable features quickly and bug-free. We followed a process that effectively aligned with the vision presented by Lume’s design and product teams while maintaining a fast execution rate. To achieve this we:
Established an Agile methodology. Our work was guided by a set of Agile techniques that helped us collaborate more effectively with the front-end and back-end teams.
Established a development process
Implemented a scalable framework using the latest front-end technologies to support Lume’s platform.
Created a set of best practices, guidelines, and documentation to help developers execute quickly and create high-quality production code.
Built a source of truth to help designers and developers iterate rapidly with design changes in the future.
Implemented a process for us to be able to create and reuse rapidly
Built prototypes to get buy-in from stakeholders for highly customized components and experiences.
Implemented scalable features that adapted quickly to new changes and iterations.
Created a responsive component system.
Lume’s new platform is a one-stop-shop for nursing professionals seeking job opportunities across the US. Users can create a profile through the Nurse Dashboard feature and use it to apply for positions, track the progress of those applications, and respond to invitations. The interactive map allows them to search for openings by filtering for location, job type, and start date plus create a list of saved jobs. These features are all supported by a framework, component library, and a development process created by Torii to help Lume reach its goal of becoming the most trusted network for nurses.
After our collaboration with Lume, the company got acquired by Vivian Health.
