Overall Satisfaction with HackerRank

HackerRank is used by my organization to conduct coding tests in order to screen candidates before offering them an interview.
  • Easy to Understand
  • Code Autocomplete
  • Customizable
  • Sometimes gives away the name of the problem before starting the exam
  • Easy to use and understand by candidates
  • Can choose what questions to test candidates with
  • Easy straightforward scoring method
  • Has increased our ability to consider more candidates as we can send many potential candidates a first round HackerRank before moving on to interviews
HackerRank is used by many other similar organizations so our targeted candidates are more familiar with the HackerRank interface. CodeSignal is nice because candidates can take one test and send it to many different companies. However, this means that individual companies have less control over the specific types of questions being asked to candidates.

Do you think HackerRank delivers good value for the price?

Would you buy HackerRank again?


I think HackerRank is very good for companies who have many candidates applying for specific coding related roles and they do not have time to interview all of them for the positions. It is a quick and easy way to screen out candidates before moving on to interviews. In situations where there are less qualified candidates for a role, or if the role is more specialized, it may be better to use another method than HackerRank.
