Mikael Ricknäs | Nov. 7, 2014
Startups vying for top awards at the Web Summit in Dublin this week are developing products for widely different markets, but highlight the growing use and reliance on cloud services and mobile devices on the part of developers and users alike.

Codacy beat 3D print maker re:3D and Apploi in the "Beta" final.

Apploi is a U.S.-based company that offers a Web-based hiring platform designed to help users find jobs in the retail and hospitality sectors. The company has apps for iOS and Android that lets job seekers use their own tablets and smartphones to see what positions are open.

The company also has iPad kiosks that can be customized for employers and be placed in their stores, and public versions that can installed in job centers. The kiosks are important because they let people who don't have Internet access compete for jobs, according to Adam Lewis, CEO at Apploi.

The app doesn't rely on just traditional resumes, but uses video and audio to help employers find the right candidates. Job seekers can see what positions are available near them on a map. Apploi has also added an advice tab with tips to help with job searches.
