Build the skill rubric for engineer hiring at HackerRank
5 months ago | hide
At HackerRank, our mission is to match every developer to the right job, on skills vs pedigree. We have thousands of customers ranging from fast-growing startups Uber, AirBnB to large established companies like Goldman Sachs, Ford, VMWare, (yes every company is becoming a s/w company) and a developer community of 4m+ developers.

Our strategy is simple -- understand the DNA that makes a job, DNA of a developer and predict fit. In order to determine the DNA of a job (what skills contribute to success), the method of evaluating a skill needs to be strong.

That's where you come in: > Building a skill rubric for various tuples (role, seniority) > Generating relevant challenges for the (role, seniority) > Ensuring they are high-quality & written crisply to gain developer love
