Frequently asked questions

What exactly are you making?

A technical hiring tool for startups to hire great software engineers. Startups are on tight deadlines to get their product out the door quickly and meet investor targets. When they hire the wrong software engineer to build their product, this can cost them heavily, reducing the likelihood of startup success. With candidates, time and time again they are asked to solve computational challenges in interviews which don’t truly reflect real-world scenarios.

Also, often great ones are missed due to being dismissed due to education criteria or failing to sell themselves in an interview. But not anymore. We are building a technical hiring tool, that focuses full time on code tests that test real-world developer scenarios so that we can help startup founders make unbiased, better-informed hiring decisions to help them get to optimal productivity faster.
