HackerEarth Announces Record Growth for Building Future Ready Tech Teams

Company’s end-to-end developer recruiting, assessment and engagement platform gains further traction in the CTO and tech leader ecosystem

HackerEarth, the leading solutions provider to source, assess, upskill and engage software developer talent, today released an overview of its YoY growth and milestones. Between Q3 2020 – 2021, HackerEarth saw record growth, which was accelerated by the launch of HackerEarth for Enterprises, the industry’s first comprehensive platform that unites every step of the tech employee lifecycle from sourcing, screening, interviewing and continuously engaging developer and data science talent.

Catalysts for this growth include the continued shift to remote workplaces and the subsequent spike in demand for a solution that improves and unifies the current fragmented market solutions in the developer hiring funnel. To facilitate continued remote interviewing, HackerEarth released an enhanced version of FaceCode as a standalone solution for conducting technical interviews with developers. The company also completed several key integrations with Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS), including LinkedIn Talent Hub and Lever.

Prior to HackerEarth, enterprises lacked a single pane of glass view to source, screen, interview and upskill developer and data science talent. Through HackerEarth’s ongoing investments in its 6.5 million strong developer community and in product development and tech integrations, organizations are able to effectively manage their entire developer lifecycle — from engaging and sourcing talent via hackathons and hiring challenges, to building assessments in minutes, to running coding interviews, to upskilling employees as new technologies and trends in software/application development emerge.

“Regardless of industry, software continues to be the core driver of innovation and competitive advantage for enterprises large and small,” said Sachin Gupta, CEO of HackerEarth. “To meet the needs of our software-driven world, companies must put strategic thought into building the tech teams responsible for developing the software and applications of tomorrow. More and more tech and HR professionals are realizing the advantages of having comprehensive visibility of their developer and data science talent, and this is underpinning the mutual growth and success of us and our community.”
