Streamlining Technical Hiring: Criteria and HackerRank Combine Forces for Better Candidate Evaluation

Written By Sam Dewey | June 8, 2023

Today, HackerRank is proud to announce a new partnership with Criteria, a market-leading SaaS hiring success platform. The partnership will allow HackerRank and Criteria customers to identify the best talent with a more comprehensive, data-driven view of their technical candidates by cross-promoting the companies’ assessments. 

HackerRank customers will now have the opportunity to obtain a more complete view of their technical candidates by offering Criteria’s comprehensive suite of game-based assessments, which include cognitive aptitude, customizable personality, and behavior assessments. By adding these types of assessments to the hiring process, HackerRank customers will now have a fast, easy, and reliable way to identify candidates who are likely to perform more effectively. 

“Our shared vision and commitment to empowering organizations to make data-driven, fair, and inclusive hiring decisions make this partnership a natural fit. Together, we are poised to redefine the hiring process, addressing the challenges faced by recruiters, technical hiring managers, and candidates alike,” said Jesse Sims, Head of Strategic Alliances at HackerRank.

In tandem, Criteria customers will now have access to HackerRank’s best-in-class coding assessments, which include a library of more than 3,100 pre-built coding questions that measure 170-plus skill areas for all levels. Commonly assessed job families include software engineers, web developers, QA and testing, cloud and DevOps, data science and ML, and cybersecurity. HackerRank’s assessments complement the Criteria assessments a hiring team already uses, resulting in a more scalable, valid, and efficient hiring process for technical roles.  

“The timing of this union is unique in that it fulfills an almost identical need for each company,” says Josh Millet, Founder and CEO of Criteria. “We were fielding inquiries from our client base and prospects about the ability to offer technical/coding skills assessments (which we do not offer) and HackerRank was receiving requests for non-technical types of assessments.”  

Currently, both Criteria and HackerRank assessments can be accessed through one of their mutual integration partners.  

This strategic partnership aims to revolutionize the way companies evaluate technical candidates by providing a comprehensive, data-driven view of their skills. By combining their respective assessments, Criteria and HackerRank empower organizations to identify the most qualified talent efficiently and effectively.

The partnership between Criteria and HackerRank marks a significant milestone in the realm of technical candidate evaluation. As companies strive to attract and retain top talent, this collaboration promises to streamline the hiring process and enable better-informed hiring decisions. With Criteria and HackerRank working together, businesses can ensure they are identifying the most qualified candidates who will excel in their technical roles and contribute to long-term success.
