At the time, HackerRank said it had a community of 150,000+ programmers and InterviewStreet had 1,000+ paying customers. HackerRank was the first Indian company to make it to Y Combinator
We’d partnered with HackerRank to offer its hiring platform to Indian startups who have received under $3 million in funding or are earning under $1 million in revenue. The plan is free for Indian Startups.
Here are some additional details Vivek Ravisankar, the co-founder at HackerRank shared with us.
- Revenues are doubling every quarter and we grew by 11x since last year
- The growth in the community of hackers is also catching up the revenue growth and will most likely exceed in a quarter or two from now
- We’re expanding like crazy and signing up a ton of Fortune 1000 companies + growing the hacker community; this year will be huge for us.
