HackerRank will always be free for programmers to participate. The companies sponsoring the event are built by some of the best hackers in the valley. The way we make money is by connecting you with the companies iff you're interested in working for any of them. We’ll send you an email declaring the results which will have a form to indicate if you’d be interested to talk to any company and we'll notify them. The goal of HackerRank is to build an engaged community of problem solvers. We will never spam or sell your data to companies. It's purely opt-in.
