Amplify uses HackerRank to vet candidates for its dev team

Written By Guest Contributor | October 28, 2014

HackerRank is a platform for vetting devs, which has been used by Brooklyn’s largest tech employer, Amplify, since HackerRank’s earlier incarnation as InterviewStreet.

According to Matt Yardeni, Amplify’s Recruiting Director, who we previously communicated with for our piece on hiring talent, the company primarily useswhat’s now known as HackerRank for Companies as a sort of pre-screening of candidates.

“It’s a balancing act,” Yardeni said. “We want candidates to have a personal connection to Amplify at every step, but at the same time, our software engineers don’t have the bandwidth to interview every candidate whose resume crosses our desk, so there needs to be some level of technical pre-screening.”
