InterviewStreet is rebranding to HackerRankX.The new brand, i.e. HackerRankX will be launched in Jan 2014 and will combine the two brands the company has built : HackerRank (coding challenges) and InterviewStreet (hiring solution).
“The same core technology powers HackerRank and Interviewstreet and while we continue to grow both products, we are now combining the two brands and renaming Interviewstreet as HackerRankX. HackerRankX will be supported by the Interviewstreet team, at the same price, but with exciting improvements throughout the product. HackerRankX offers the Interviewstreet platform to help you screen candidates and conduct phone interviews with analytics and insights on top of it” [announcement]
Given that the two brands have done well separately (HackerRank, as the company claims has grown into a community of 150,000+ programmers and InterviewStreet has 1,000+ paying customers), combining the two is surely a logical choice for the company.
