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.

We have been testing DevSkills in recruitments of engineers at Sting for a while now. So far, I have only heard positive things about the platform. Three things seems to stand out: great customer support, tests with good quality and a fair price.

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.
