"Total lifesaver!"

What do you like best?

Since i am not a software engineer. Having a business idea that i wanted to implement and needed to recruit developers for different platforms (Android, IOS, web services), i simply couldn't rely on any means besides having the candidates tested.

With devskiller i got the support i needed with continious support from highly experienced Software engineers (Thanks Rob) who helped me take my requirements and put them into fully functional tests.

They saved me money, time, and effort. Not to mention the emotions and costs required to fire individuals who are not up to par.

I am so glad i paid for this amazing service and i will surely be back for every single recruitment needs i will have in the future when it comes to developers.

What do you dislike?

If i invited a candidate to the test there is no way to cancel the invite and send it to another individual.

Recommendations to others considering the product

After shopping around i found Devskiller to be the most supportive for a non technical individual and for a startup with limited capital.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Recruiting developers for a startup. I benefited by saving huge amounts of $$$ by employing the right candidates who have the basic needs to what i am looking for.

"Powerful and easy to use candidate testing"

What do you like best?

For many years we created our own tests for candidates and marked them manually ourselves. Candidate interviews generally took up 10 to 20 hours of senior resource just in technical competency reviews. The option to upload to a git repository, automatically run unit tests and summarize results is by far the best feature of the software. Senior resource is spending an hour or two reviewing test results now. Other good features: solid library of built in tests, easy to search, easy to mix and match questions, easy to create your own questions.

What do you dislike?

The lack of some tests in the first paid tier seems arbitrary, iOs is the one we missed most in our case.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Good product which is easy to setup and easy to use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have reduced the load on senior resource for technical competency reviews, our great techs can now spend more time on tech and less time on marking.

What Technical Skills Screening solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Relevant online testing for Software Engineering candidates"

What do you like best?

Out of the box, we're supplied with relevant questions and programming solutions we can customize a test with. It didn't take long at all for us to get a list of questions the team liked together in a test, and start testing candidates in our funnel.

There's a large pool of format of questions- we don't need to format the coding questions into weird multiple choice questions where you select the correct code as other platforms have you do. Along the same vein, we can have the candidate complete coding projects that are similar to work our developers do each day: find and fix the existing bug(s), implement a new feature, or perform a code review (similar to Bitbucket or Github pull request code reviews).

We ended up writing a few of our own questions, which wasn't difficult, that allowed us to test candidates how they'd perform against some of our own code. The code reviews especially have been great at determining the candidate's skill level based on the feedback they give.

Being able to have the candidate download/upload code from Devskiller so they can modify it in their own IDE, or allowing them to grab the code from a temporary Github repository is a big plus.

What do you dislike?

Some bugs had come up, such as not being able to turn on/off an option in a test question. These were resolved quickly in a few hours after sending an email to the support email.

The test isn't fully automated for some types of questions (as you would expect for code reviews), but there's also not a way to give automatic partial credit on multiple-choice questions. This requires us to go through the test questions individually to give partial credit (4 / 5 correct doesn't seem like a 0% to us), but the time isn't significant.

Brackets seem to break the SQL questions, which is odd and hangs some candidates up.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We've cut down the amount of in-person interviews we need to hold by 65+% by being able to realize what the level of experience the candidate demonstrates within code very similar to our own. When we do bring in a candidate, we have a good baseline idea of where their skillset it at, and can tailor the in-person interview to allow us to determine the candidate's rate-of-growth and dive deeper into what they know.

"Seamless User Experience"

What do you like best?

The Expirience using the tool, the ability to record the session but also the professionality behind it.

What do you dislike?

Not many code review questions even though the database has a lot of tasks in general.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This tool is far ahaid to other similar tools in the industry. It can be used as a first level recruitment process just o filter candidates before inviting them for an interview but also can be used for more deep evaluation. It is very easy to learn and use as an Administrator but mostly it provides a seamless and professional-looking experience to candidates.

In addition customer support is eager to help and are very friendly and professional.

Definitely recooment DevsKiller

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are a fast growing company. Devskiller helped us utilize completly the recruitment process. In addition it gave us the opportunity to evaluate in detail the candidates using the screen recording feature.

"Great tool to save precious time screening candidates"

What do you like best?

I have used other similar solutions like Codility, Qualified.io, and also trialed HackerRank. DevSkiller offers the best mix of powerful features for the price.

Their customer support is always very responsive and knowledgeable and willing to work with you to tailor the product to your specific needs.

I also really like that they also include code review and bug fix type tasks.

What do you dislike?

The user interface is a little complicated and could probably be made more intuitive.

Library of tasks could be expanded to cover other (less popular) technologies.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Screen candidates before face to face interview.

Enable less technical HR resources with tools to narrow down candidates.

Use the candidate's struggle or success at solving each task as followup at later stages in recruiting process.

Assess a candidate's approach to problem solving with coding session playback.

"An effective screening tool, with a great customer facing team to support"

What do you like best?

Devskiller was suggested by my agency to use as a proficiency test during the employment process for our first in-house developer. Knowing nothing about the coding, I was able to use Devskiller to benchmark each of the candidates against relevant technologies.

Rob, one of their team, was on hand to help and provide consultation throughout our process. He was friendly, open and informed. I cannot recommend them enough!

What do you dislike?

Nothing at all! Maybe you could add Umbraco as a CMS test in the near fututre.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're using Devskiller to screen for a suitable, in-house developer. Benefits include being able to pick from a spectrum of competencies, across a varied range of technologies.

"Great recruiting tool"

What do you like best?

DevSkiller provides a large test library and is easy to use. The tests include real coding projects with different degrees of difficulty for different type of positions. This makes technical screening easy when recruiting since one can choose a suitable test for the applicable programming language and libraries and send invites to the candidates with the click of a button.

What do you dislike?

Need to purchase premium for full access to the complete test library

Recommendations to others considering the product

I was choosing between DevSkiller and Codility and decided on DevSkiller because I felt that it had better test library and was easier to get started with

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use DevSkiller as a help with technical screening when recruiting developers

"Great tool, fantastic for helping find that special employee"

What do you like best?

Variety of tests that really digs into the different ways to test someone, in this industry its easy to fly under the radar this makes it very hard to do so.

Love the interface and ease of use

Code reviews and code tests with the plagiarism (wish it was free) are great

What do you dislike?

Needs to have a greater selection to choose from, whilst what they have in the .net stack is good not enough predefined tests for the more senior developer are available

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Recruiting top developers and QA

"Saves a lot of time screening candidates"

What do you like best?

The ability to write custom tests that candidates are able to complete using their native environment is fantastic. It's more realistic than trying to write code in a web browser.

What do you dislike?

We typically work with HR when inviting candidates and the notifications are typically sent to the person that did the invite. It would be helpful to be able to subscribe to the tests I'm interested in so I'm notified when they are complete, even if I didn't invite the candidate.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're using Devskiller to screen developers that are applying for a position in our company. By first having them take the Devskiller tests, we only spend our time talking to candidates that have the skills we are looking for.

"Good product to test our candidates"

What do you like best?

Devskiller provides the possibility to write your own tasks and tests. Devskiller supports a lot of different types of questions and different platforms.

What do you dislike?

If you write your own programming task, you have to upload a zip-file with a project. If something is wrong, you don't get a very informative error message.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Devskiller to test the knowledge of the candidates that apply for a job with us.
