From founding to funding: a $1M success story

By Changelog

We have some really big news!

But first, we’d like to thank you for trusting us with your business. 

Back in 2015, we were just a stereotypical startup with five founders in a tiny office, a pile of empty pizza boxes, and a big dream. Today, we serve our amazing customers from 60+ countries including PayPal, Cisco, ING, Deloitte, Criteo, or EY. 

And things will get even better…DRUMROLL….

We’ve raised over $1M from SpeedUp Energy Innovation! 

This money will help us further improve our products and our service to you and your businesses.

Hiring and coronavirus

By Changelog, Human Resources

In response to the spread of COVID-19, we want to do our part and keep our customers safe and connected at the same time.

Starting today, we’re rolling out free access to video interviews for all of our customers globally until June 30. These features are typically only available in the Enterprise plan but we’re here to support the HR and tech community as much as we can. 

We’re also in the process of developing a remote-first hiring webinar to support which we will release soon. If you have any questions or need help getting started, please reach out via chat and we’ll do our best to help out.  Read More

ISO 27001 at Devskiller will speed up your procurement process

By Changelog

Devskiller has always had a major commitment to security. Our system was built by software professionals who understood that security is not simply a skin that you put over a system. Instead, it’s a state of mind, a way of designing systems that needs to be implemented from the ground up. With our new ISO 27001 certification, our customers can now easily verify what we’ve been doing since the beginning, providing a secure system for their data.

What is ISO 27001

ISO 27001 is an internationally recognized and standardized specification for an information security management system. It was created to “provide a model for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving an information security management system.”

By Changelog

When you love your work, your work is never done and at Devskiller we love our work. Winter is no time to sleep. Our customers certainly don’t so why should we? Instead, we’ve been looking for new features to add to our platform as well as making sure things just run better. This is all in our new platform update.

Devskiller platform update April 2019

Here are some of the most important things that we’ve added since our last update.

We’ve updated our tasks to make sure they run on the most recent versions of the technology they test

There’s no use in seeing if a developer can use an old version of a technology when they’re going to be using the most recent version at work. New updates can be very different from the older versions of the technology they replace. We understand this so, in addition to putting out new tasks, we now support the most recent versions of that technology in addition to the legacy versions. Read More

From a code plagiarism checker to an IP tracker, Devskiller’s tests are secure

[Webinar]From a code plagiarism checker to an IP tracker, Devskiller’s tests are secure

By Changelog, Coding Test

It goes without saying that a developer skills test is only useful if you know the right person took the test. In the vast majority of cases, this is not an issue. But we still employ a code plagiarism checker on our system. Why is that?

Why you need a code plagiarism checker

Plagiarism is a big problem in society. According to Academic Paradigms, LLC, The Center for Academic Integrity found that almost 80% of college students admit to cheating at least once.  And if you think that this is simply a case of all those underwater basket weaving students handing in cheap baskets from the Walmart as their end of term project, you would be sorely mistaken.
