About ApplyBoard

ApplyBoard, a Series D edtech unicorn based in Kitchener, Ontario, offers an artificial intelligence-enabled recruitment platform that helps international students apply for post-secondary studies abroad. As a constantly evolving company with a network extending to over 1,200 educational institutions across North America and the UK, ApplyBoard needs a workforce that can quickly onboard and immediately deliver great results. That's where we step in.


As ApplyBoard expands, it needs a skilled workforce that can deliver fast, high-quality results. This involves aiming for perfect unit test coverage, working toward higher accessibility targets (currently at 78%, moving toward 98%), and committing to rigorous quality assurance (QA).

These quality standards underscore the need for meticulous vetting of new hires. Yet, vetting has never been required for our staffing services due to strict in-house hiring methods, which act as a "pre-vetting" for clients like ApplyBoard. Also, Wolven’s crew is more than a group of handy folks - we're bound together by a culture that's all about teaming up with fellow senior developers and designers ready to provide guidance and support to each allocated individual.

Over our ongoing partnership years, we boosted the teams working on the total revamp of the Recruitment Partners Dashboard, planning and execution of a unique design system common across all products, and a comprehensive makeover of payment gateways for the fintech division, all under the ApplyBoard umbrella. We're stoked to aid international students in finding a quicker, smarter route to more education opportunities.
