Our mission is to match every developer with the right job

The HackerRank team is on a mission to match every developer in the world to the right job by providing a technical recruiting platform that assesses developers based on actual coding skills. Our solution is revolutionizing the way companies discover and evaluate talented developers. HackerRank is the destination for the best developers to hone their skills and for companies to find top software developers.

By addressing all phases - sourcing, screening and interviewing - we help companies uncover higher quality candidates, reduce time to hire and return valuable productivity time to teams.

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.
