Nykaa is an Indian lifestyle retailer of beauty, wellness, and fashion products that was founded by Falguni Nayar in 2012. Nykaa has multiple ecommerce platforms across websites and mobile apps and also has offline stores. It is a unicorn startup, and as of 2020, was valued at US$1.2 billion.
What we like: The page starts with story about Nykaa and the need for it. A lot of photos and employee testimonials are organized is an easy to read way.
The lush pink color through the page stands out though in a minimalist way adds charm to the website.

locus.sh uses Freshteam to manage applicants and it rather seems a lengthy application process. Once you upload the resume, the system parses the information but still you have to input experience details manually which we think is definitely a turn off

LogiNext’s flagship products are its cloud based Last Mile Delivery and Route Optimization software and its Field Service and Field Workforce Optimization software.

Vedantu does not seem to have deployed a candidate management software. The jobs listed on their career page routes applicants to an email id. Being a technology firm note sure why Vedantu ignored this aspect.
However, they use a few of job boards like LinkedIn & Instahyre

Khatabook uses recruiterbox to manage their applicants. The application process is short and crisp
We sifted through tons of career pages analyzing every aspect of candidate delight in detail. Not many were able to get it right. It’s also disappointing that many companies don’t customize their career pages as per their target audience. It’s only a few who stands out from the crowd and understand the power of Employer Branding
