Why choose
DevSkills vs HackerRank?

DevSkills is the HackerRank alternative that makes developer hiring sensible instead of a university exam. Finally, a coding test tool that helps evaluate the on-the-job engineering skills.

DevSkills enabled us to automate our interview process and scale it from 10s of candidates to 100s of candidates, while still keeping it grounded in solving real-world, practical problems.

I very much like the core concept of Devskills - making the hiring process for engineers more like the actual day-to-day life, rather than some kind of theoretical review. The cases are well thought-through and map right to what our engineers do in their job.

HackerRank was a great start. DevSkills picks up where it left off.

HackerRank is a great company that built a massive developer community.

That said, you’re here for a reason. And the fact of the matter is that HackerRank is a generic tool meant to appeal to a vast number of needs and industries.

If you’re okay with using generic coding tests not targeting the on-the-job skills, DevSkills probably won’t be a good fit for you. But if you want to figure out whether your candidates have the necessary real-world expertise, you’re in the right place.

So what sets DevSkills apart from HackerRank?

Here are nine ways DevSkills outperforms HackerRank.
