Remote Hiring Solution


What it is: The HackerRank Remote Hiring Solution powers the candidate journey from invite to offer.  Based on an intelligent skills profile by role, the platform allows recruiters to widen their reach to candidates, to power technical assessments, to host live pair-programming interviews and to benchmark each candidate’s skill set. HackerRank built its skills definition by analyzing assessments made by the HackerRank community through tens of millions of code submissions. Once they were established, these skills were validated by an independent Skills Advisory Council.

Why we like it: With most organizations moving to a largely or totally virtual hiring process, technologies play an essential role in facilitating efficient and quality hiring. Particularly for assessing and interviewing for such technical roles as developers and programmers, a robust and purpose-built platform for technical hiring is key. That’s what HackerRank has created: a comprehensive platform to support the remote hiring process for technical roles based on well-defined skills. With code pairing, virtual whiteboards and a deep knowledge base for technical assessments, the HackerRank remote hiring solution stands out as an innovative solution for any organization with technical hiring challenges and is especially suited to today’s remote hiring paradigm.

As always, we encourage you to perform your own due diligence before making any investments.
