HackerRank, has launched Jobs, a recruitment platform that focuses specifically on programmers.
HackerRank conducted an extensive survey amongst the coder community and found out several issues including slow response time from the recruiter, lack of transparency on salary, lack of clarity on the job profile and the company expectations from the employee and thus launched the app to address these issues.
The HackerRank Jobs comes with a mobile app that makes it user friendly with an interactive UI.
“We are connecting previously undiscovered developers to companies in the same way that AIRBNB found a new way to connect millions of travelers to the home owners who need their business. Or in the same way, Uber uncovered a new way to connect riders and car owners. We are reinventing the way that engineers apply to jobs,” said Vivek Ravisankar, co-founder and CEO of HackerRank.
To apply to a job, candidates can request a code challenge from companies and then solve the code challenge and share their availability for interviews. Companies have up to 5 days to schedule an interview with the top-performing engineers, and candidates who didn’t pass the hiring bar will be notified. Hence, applicants are guaranteed to know whether or not they move onto the next round.
The HackerRank Jobs mobile app is available now in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, as well as on the HackerRank website. Developers can currently search for jobs in the San Francisco Bay Area, New York, and Bangalore, India. Additional regions will be available by the end of March 2016.
