Why choose
Alva Coding Tests vs Qualified?

Alva Coding Tests is the Qualified alternative that makes developer hiring sensible instead of a university exam in a constrained dev environment. Finally, a coding test tool that helps evaluate the on-the-job engineering skills.

I very much like the core concept of Alva Coding Tests - 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.

Qualified was a great start. Alva Coding Tests pick up where it left off.

Qualified is a great company that built a massive developer community. But let’s call a spade a spade and call it for what it is: constrained.

If you’re okay with using generic coding tests in a proprietary browser-based environment, Alva Coding Tests 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.
