Brief history of Devskiller
Devskiller was born out of our frustration. Being a connector between HR and IT team we faced problems with recruiting programmers each day:
- we wasted a lot of time of our best developers on verifying tech skills of weak candidates,
- HR team wasn’t able to verify actual programming skills of candidates by themselves,
- our recruiting process took too much time and we didn’t have manpower to shorten it.
The solutions on the market were all testing book knowledge, which is good for hiring students, but we wanted to find real problem solvers that are aware of modern technologies.
That is when an obvious thought struck our mind:
If we want to recruit a programmer, we should imitate natural environment he works in and give him tasks straight from work that he will do, kind of 1st day at work experience during assessment.
What’s more, the real value is hidden not only in finding developers who mastered a programming language, but also know certain frameworks and libraries inside out.
We’ve achieved it all, so you can recruit programmers the smart way.
