You may not know it but at DevSkiller, we’ve been working hard to improve our platform over the past year, growing our team and working to make it better. We’ve been expanding our efforts stabilizing the platform and bringing a ton of new features that will help you improve your Tech recruitment. Here are a few.
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.
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
We’re excited to announce that we have big things coming in the works here at DevSkiller. As of February 2020, we’re rebranding!
Some of you may have noticed that we’ve started rolling out a new logo and a new website design. We’d like to share with you our rationale behind the changes.
Taking on a rebrand is no small task but we’re tackling it because of our dedication to fair skill assessments and the progress of individuals that we support. After some in-depth research, market analysis, and multiple conversations with our clients, we felt it was time for our brand identity to change, too. Read More
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.”
A lot has happened this spring and summer. Game of Thrones ended and since winter is no longer coming, it got really hot everywhere. Thanks to some blue-sky thinking and powerful air conditioning, some big changes have happened at DevSkiller. These will have a lasting impact on our customers so let’s jump right in.
Platform update: DevSkiller now runs on Google Cloud
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
The last leaves are falling off the trees, days are getting shorter, and the Northern Hemisphere prepares for winter. Unphased by the changing seasons, DevSkiller has been working hard all year long to bring new features to the platform. Our goal is always a better platform and a better experience.
DevSkiller platform update November 2018
Here are some of the most important new features we’ve added since last June:
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.
April showers have turned into May flowers and those have given way to June’s sunshine. While the sun shines down on the world around us, DevSkiller is shining a light on our platform, adding new features and content to help our users.
To let you know how our user’s experience will get even better in June, we want to tell you about all of the new features that we’ve added to the platform.
