Company Creation

To get started, first you need to create one or more companies within the Skill Engine API. This process is very similar to the entity creation step from the job matching tutorial, with one key difference: as Companies inside the Skill Engine API are not entities, they do not have a skill profile (and cannot result in a 422 error).

For each Company, a minimal set of details is required:

  • The company name
  • The VAT number
  • The location of the company, expressed as latitude and longitude

As with entities, the external_id of each Company is also controlled by you. To create one, simply submit a POST request to the companies endpoint:

{
  "external_id": "a3903505-eb84-42dc-a79f-5e7b1fe897b7",
  "name": "TechWolf",
  "vat": "BE0702852201",
  "location": {
    "lat": 51.0216707,
    "lng": 3.6887328
  }
}
