Each role on the RippleMatch platform has an algorithm, also known as a hiring profile that is set up with your Customer Success Manager and Solutions Architect.

This algorithm impacts scoring for AutoMatch candidates and direct applicants who come through tracking links or a company page. This algorithm also defines how candidates are ordered in our Source product. To understand the difference between AutoMatch and Source, check out this article!

To add a new role, click the “New Role” button at the top-left of the screen.

A new modal will appear, prompting you to fill in the basic details of your role. Enter the role title, location, and job description then select “Continue”. If your job has multiple locations, we suggest writing “Various” in the location field and then specifying each location within the job description. You can also duplicate a role that exists already by using the button at the top-right corner.

Next, you can choose to create supplemental questions for your candidates to fill out. You can select from the recommended questions and/or create new ones! We recommend limiting the number of questions you add as “required”, especially if candidates will later have to complete an application on your company website in order to get into your ATS.

When you click “Continue”, you’ll next be prompted to select the visibility of your role. Keeping your role “private” will limit the candidates who can apply to your role on RippleMatch to only those you’re Sourcing (or those you are matched with if that role is also on AutoMatch). Setting your role “public” will open it up to applications from organic candidates who discover the opportunity on your company branded page. For more details on public vs private roles, see this article! For more details on setting up a company branded page, click here!

Once you’ve completed all of the details in your role settings, you will define your algorithm for the role, including a number of different search criteria such as graduation date requirements, majors, internship experiences, and more.

After completing all of the details, you’ll create the new role, which will appear under “Roles” in the left side column of your Source homepage.

If you decide to make changes after the initial creation of your role you can update your search criteria for sourcing your own candidates by clicking on the "Source" tab, and then the "Filters" button.

If you would like to edit your AutoMatch algorithm, click the pencil icon at the top-right of the page. Keep in mind that the AutoMatch algorithm affects the matches you receive on a weekly basis, so if you're going to make a significant change it might be a good idea to reach out and let your Customer Success Manager know.

Please note: When creating a new role, you will only receive matches for that role if it is part of your AutoMatch package. If you have any questions, reach out to your Customer Success Manager.
