How it works

Building a reliable tech interview process is tedious. Save hours by leveraging our tech interview platform.

Select a coding challenge to test your candidates

Pick from a variety of predefined real-world coding challenges, upload your own, or request a customized challenge.

Invite candidates using our web app or your ATS.

Send a challenge with one click

Wait until your candidates are ready

They get access to a private GitHub repository with the challenge instructions.

We provide the necessary support whenever they need assistance along the way.

They submit the results by creating a Pull Request on their GitHub repository.

Review candidates with our evaluation tools

Some skills get evaluated with predefined auto-tests whenever the candidates put up their submission for a review.

For the rest, we provide standardized evaluation rubrics for an in-depth and fair code review.

Frequently asked questions

How is DevSkills different from other coding test platforms?
DevSkills excels when candidates need to get evaluated for real-world engineering competence. It's the right choice for you if:
  • You want to assess the practical engineering skills within a particular competence and not the details of a specific programming language or framework.
  • 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 coding challenges and evaluation rubrics from scratch.
  • You want to integrate your coding interviews with your ATS.
Can I integrate DevSkills with my ATS?
We currently support integrations with Teamtailor, Greenhouse, and Lever. If you want to integrate with a different ATS, give us a shout.
How can I try out DevSkills before buying?
By scheduling 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 big is your challenge 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. If you need to evaluate for a different competence, give us a shout.
I already have my challenges. Can I upload them to your platform?
Absolutely! Either upload a custom challenge or extend one from the DevSkills library (e.g., custom boilerplate or specific acceptance criteria). Here's how.
What tech stacks can my candidates use to solve your challenges?
Our platform employs black-box automated testing and provides code review rubrics that evaluate practical engineering skills within each competence, making our challenges work with most tech stacks.
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.

Founder's note

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

The challenge we were facing was making sure the people we interviewed could do the job we had for them.

As we were setting up our tech interview processes, we attempted to answer the following two questions:

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

Frankly speaking, It took us a lot of failed attempts and process adjustments to get to the state we wanted to reach.

I got curious about how others tackled this problem. After a few dozen of conversations with people from different companies, it became apparent that many of those didn't have reliable tech evaluation processes in place. And a good number of those simply couldn't afford coming up with one - whether it's money- or time-wise.

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

Premium developer assessment should be available to more teams than only "Google's and Facebook's of the world". I’d love for you to give DevSkills a try (you can start for free!) and see the difference the right tools can make.

Sincerely,

anton, founder, devskills
