The HackerRank revolution begins
with one thing in mind: People.

The HackerRank team is on a mission to flatten the world by restructuring the DNA of every company on the planet. We rank programmers based on their coding skills, helping companies source great programmers and reduce the time to hire.

As a result, we are revolutionizing the way companies discover and evaluate talented engineers. The HackerRank platform is the destination for the best engineers to hone their skills and companies to find top engineers.

Our Story

Back in 2008, Vivek Ravisankar and Hari Karunanidhi worked as software engineers at Amazon and IBM, respectively, spending way too much time on engineering interviews. The duo wished they could focus more energy on building innovative products and less energy screening resumes and interviewing. Plus, it was really hard to spot great programmers using traditional recruiting methods.

Together, they built automatic CodeChallenges that not only cut thousands of hours in recruiting collectively but also helped flatten the world by promoting a meritocracy. This innovation earned a spot at the prestigious Y Combinator startup accelerator program. And so HackerRank was born.
