Overall Satisfaction with CodeSignal

I am just a CodeSignal user, and I have been using CodeSignal to complete opening assessments for various software development companies.
  • Ease of use
  • UI Design
  • Transparency with how scoring works
  • Sharing coding scores
  • More granularity with score percentiles would be nice
  • Built-in programming language documentation so I don't have to worry about opening another tab and tripping the anti-cheat
  • For the sake of convenience make exams due at midnight instead of exactly 2 weeks from the test being sent out.
  • Running and testing code quickly
  • Intuitive interface
  • Problems that are presented well
  • Showed me what I need to do to improve coding wise
  • Reduced my time spent on taking OAs by allowing me to recycle previous tests
CodeSignal is a significantly better platform compared to many of the other OA services. Code auto-suggest is fluid, and text parsing is better. On other coding platforms oftentimes brackets are hard to align correctly. The code testing feature is also incredibly convenient and makes it easier to debug code and see if you are going in the right direction.

Do you think CodeSignal delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with CodeSignal's feature set?


Did CodeSignal live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of CodeSignal go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy CodeSignal again?


CodeSignal is a really good platform for taking programming assessments. It's hard to expand upon since the purpose of the software is really specific. I guess it would be interesting to see CodeSignal potentially expand out to proctored testing outside opening assessments for coding companies. For example, I could see CodeSignal being a better alternative to some of the proctoring software that is currently used in college for tests, given that it was adapted a bit for that purpose.
