What is SaaS, and what are the largest SaaS companies hiring today?

A software as a service company, which is according to a Hubspot report the largest growing market segment since 2019, is a company providing tools or solutions that are delivered over the Internet using cloud technology. This enables an end user to access a service via their own Internet browser. In the past, software was typically downloaded to a user’s machine and ran on a local basis. The advent of SaaS software has enabled users to utilize software via a subscription/license based model that ties a user’s access to a product via the public Internet.

There are three different “as a service” models that exist in cloud computing to day. Software as a Service, Infrastructure as a Service and Platform as a Service. SaaS product customers are usually B2B or B2C.

In short, a company will generally deploy their application to the cloud via their own servers or a public cloud service such as AWS or Google Cloud Platform, hosted in a provider’s data center. This enables a company to enjoy the benefits of the performant and tuned infrastructure, as opposed to an on-premise environment previously preferred by most early stage SaaS companies.

One benefit of Saas is that it enables a company to tie their own product to a third party solution, either via API connectivity or through 3rd-party services hosted within the same data center.

Some benefits of Saas include:

  1. scalable use — a cloud provider has offerings that allow customers to scale out automatically according to user demand. For example, if a customer’s web server is under considerable user load, cloud provider’s have tooling that autoscales infrastructure to accommodate the short-term need
  2. pricing — typically this is cheaper. a cloud provider has negotiated agreements for hardware and networking resources that are likely to have already have benefitted from economies of scale having been negotiated
  3. security and infrastructure — cloud providers bake this in to their pricing and, typically, having teams dedicated to deal with security issues such as patching and compliance
  4. ease of use — the pain and hassle of deploying and installing physical hardware is handled by the cloud provider so that a SaaS company can focus on their own core business, building a product for end users

Now that we’ve explained Saas, let’s talk about what Careersaas has been built to provide our own users.

In the recruitment industry today, there are a series of chains of inefficiencies that are likely to be optimized over the next decade. For one, companies (and their recruitment teams) struggle to find the best talent on the market. A company advertising their own positions uses LinkedIn or other tools such as Indeed.com to find candidates. This in itself can be a problem. The best candidates on the market are not always actively looking for a new position, and at times job posts do not capture candidates as the role is only captured with a single job title. If a job seeker is only searching one title, they may miss out on a role that is suited to their skills and experience.

How Careersaas seeks to solve these two issues

  1. Recruiters — have you ever noticed on LinkedIn obscure consultancy companies advertising interesting jobs? or noticed that the same job has been reposted from an actual company via a recruitment/consultancy company? We will explain how this model works. Generally, a recruitment company will hire a series of consultants (often fresh-graduates or inexperienced sales people) to locate a role from an actual company, let’s say for example Amazon, and re-post the job excluding a company name on their site. These consultancy companies then scour LinkedIn to find candidates matching skills required for a role, and then attempt to connect the recruiter and a potential candidate. For this “connection”, recruitment companies generally charge 20–30% of an entire year’s salary! The hiring company takes on this burden.
    Careersaas only posts the same job once and is a recruiter-free zone.
    Our business model is to build tooling that connects the hiring manager and the employee via skills, preferences and experience, as well as CV tools that we are set to build at a later date.
    Therefore, with Careersaas, you’re going to see the true and actual picture of what’s happening on the job market
  2. Job titles — if you’re searching for a Java Developer role, but there’s a Software Engineer role live on the internet, LinkedIn does not provide necessarily return these opportunities in search.
    With Careersaas, all of our roles have an embedded “one-to-many” algorithm, where we match jobs to careers. Jobs and Careers are two distinct things. A job is a position with a particular company, but a Career is an entire set of job titles all with the same or similar roles and responsibilities.
    Careersaas’ core technology enables you, a user, to access our Career search algorithm with every keyword search you run.
