Expanding its global footprint HackerEarth said it has entered into reseller partnerships with DICE in the US and Webstaff, in Japan.
HackerEarth is the hub for programmers to practice and improve their programming skills, compete in coding challenges/hackathons and showcase their profile. Businesses use HackerEarth to assess technical skills of developers and build developer relations. Through these partnerships, HackerEarth’s core products, the Recruit and Sprint, will now be available in North America and Japan
The partnership will bring HackerEarth offerings to DICE and Webstaff’s customers and applicants. The products will help in accelerating the technical hiring process, improve applicant quality for employers, and provide a tool for candidates to set themselves apart.
HackerEarth Recruit allows companies to conduct tests to screen technical candidates. The product automatically creates challenges, remotely evaluates candidates and gives a detailed and objective insight on technical skills of candidates.
Sprint is a hackathon management tool used by organizations for developer engagement through various intra-company activities such as product development challenges, and branding hackathons. Sprint automates the entire process of conducting hackathons – right from creating teams, online collaborative development among participants, showcasing products, tracking progress and peer review – to judging the submissions.
The DICE partnership with HackerEarth will enable DICE to offer customizable tests for purchase by employers to screen and qualify candidates in 32 different programming languages. For employers without in-depth technical knowledge, HackerEarth’s pre-built library of 19,000 technical and non-technical questions simplifies the process of creating tests. Additionally, DICE will resell ‘hackathon’ services, enabling employers with a simple solution to host their own in-person or virtual hackathons.
WebStaff is Japan’s first ever web specialized human resource service company providing multiple HR services to the IT industry including staffing, placement, consulting and outsourcing web design.
Webstaff now aims to introduce technical assessment in the Japanese ecosystem through HackerEarth Recruit. This will help Webstaff to screen the candidates on technical skills, thereby allowing them to reduce time to hire and improve the quality of candidates. In addition to providing HackerEarth Recruit services in Japanese, Webstaff will also implement internal employee skill check using Recruit and offer a training program to the employees with the help of their sister company, Internet Academy, to propel the skill level of the organization.
Sachin Gupta, CEO & Co-founder, HackerEarth, said, “Technical recruiting is a cumbersome process and HackerEarth has been working hard towards solving that problem We believe that our partnership with DICE and Webstaff is a step in the right direction,”. We’re confident that this partnership will speed up employers’ hiring processes and provide candidates with the tools and services needed to prove their technical aptitude.”
