Mbhele detailed how the app works for IOL, claiming that users simply need to register their details and the app would triangulate the user's location and show them jobs available based on location and qualifications entered.

The young software engineer added that the further down users scroll, the wider the search radius becomes. Job X has already been launched and has attracted more than 40 000 users.
