Prehash.com praised by tech company for helping them find the best developer talent
Droplet, who are listed among Mashable’s “Top 25 Startups to Watch” as well as a “Future Global Giant” by the Sunday Times, were struggling to fill their Ruby vacancies via the standard means of job boards and agencies. By turning to Prehash.com they were able to showcase their tech stack and provide candidates with an insight into the amazing technologies they are working with and unique problems they are tackling. This benefits both parties as candidates get a good understanding of the work they’d be doing if they joined that organisation and employers get to see how the candidate performs on a real-life project.
Tom Livesey, CTO at Droplet, comments: “Our latest hire might have slipped through if I’d have looked at his CV alone but I really wanted to speak with him after seeing his code.”
Prehash customer data backs up the point that developers are far more comfortable & lsquo;applying with code’ as 90% choose to take on a company’s coding challenge rather than submitting a CV. This enables companies to both attract and screen developers in parallel - something that is totally unique in today’s hiring lifecycle and a huge time saver. The fact that the candidate has self-selected to undertake an assessment also indicates a keen interest and commitment to the company and role being advertised.
Petr Janda, Founder and CTO of Prehash, adds “What sets Prehash apart is that it uses real world business scenarios, specific to an organisation, in order to assess on-the-job skills, rather than theoretical computer science questions or algorithmic puzzles. Over time, we believe that this scenario-based, challenge data will become the entry point and gold standard for the hiring process within multiple professional service verticals.”
Prehash will be attending #HRTechTank in London on Wednesday 3rd September and Tru London on Friday 5th September.
