Frequently asked questions

What's unique about DevSkills?
DevSkills excels when you need to assess the real-world engineering skills of your candidates. It's the right choice if:
  • You want to assess the practical engineering competence within the target profile and not the specific programming language or framework details.
  • You want to evaluate if your candidates can use Git and follow a real-world developer workflow.
  • You don't want to spend your time creating and calibrating coding tests and code review scorecards from scratch.
Can I integrate DevSkills with my ATS?
We support integrations like Teamtailor, Greenhouse, and Lever. Give us a shout at support@devskills.co to double-check if we support your ATS.
How can I try out DevSkills before buying?
Please schedule a demo with us. We'd like to know more about your situation. Then we'll show you how DevSkills can help you address it. Finally, we'll activate a free trial for your team so that you can see how it works in practice.
How extensive is your coding test library?
Our library includes various coding challenges that allow you to assess developers for Backend, Frontend, Fullstack, and Mobile competencies, across Junior, Mid-level, and Senior levels. See more details.
Whenever a hiring team can't find a challenge that fits them, we always provide a new one customized to their needs.
Do you provide refunds?
Not at the moment. However, you can get a complete sense of the platform via a free trial that we can grant you after a product demo.
Is it possible to upload my own challenges to DevSkills to leverage your GitHub-based infrastructure for inviting our candidates?
Absolutely! Either upload a custom challenge or extend one from the DevSkills library (e.g., custom boilerplate or specific acceptance criteria). Here's how.

Founder's note

Hi there. I'm Anton. Over a few years, I had the chance to work for a company undergoing massive growth. To accommodate such a change, we needed to hire a lot of developers.

The challenge we were facing was making sure the people we were hiring could do the required job.

As we were working on defining our developer hiring processes, we identified two primary questions to answer:

  • How can we make sure that someone has practical tech competence?
  • How can we minimize the effort required to figure it out?

After many failed attempts and process iterations, we did get closer to the state we wanted to reach.

But frankly speaking, we could have saved a lot of time had we been aware of the lessons we'd learned along the way.

That's why we built DevSkills — to give any engineering team (like yours) a leg-up against the dev hiring competition that's growing by the day.

I’d love for you to give DevSkills a try and see the difference the right tools can make.

Sincerely,

anton, founder, devskills
