Go beyond the noise in technical hiring

With all the time and effort that goes into technical hiring, why is it still so hard to identify the right candidates? Learn what may be holding you back from making the engineering hires you need, with fewer resources.

To hire engineers more efficiently, you need a way to separate the signal from the noise

For too long, companies have spent too much time sifting through all the noise produced by traditional resumes, inconsistent interviews, and homegrown assessments—when all they really want to know is how well this person can do the job.

It’s time to go beyond the noise, and you need three things to do that:

Smarter questions

that are written by subject matter experts and validated by IO Psychologists.

Simpler process

that speeds your time to hire, frees up engineers’ time, improves the candidate experience, and results in better hires overall.

Stronger platform

that supports you (and candidates) at every step in the hiring process, plugs seamlessly into your ATS, and is supported by an industry-leading IDE that simulates real-world software development.

Only CodeSignal brings you this “smarter questions, simpler process, stronger platform” approach.

Finally, a process that goes #BeyondThat

CodeSignal empowers teams to hire the right technical talent with fewer resources by shortening time-to-hire, reducing engineering time (and cost) spent on recruiting, and enabling recruiting teams to do more with less.

Can’t ship your product on time because you’ve had to spend weeks preparing for and conducting interviews? Or, maybe you’re spending weeks writing assessment questions, only for them to be leaked within hours? And after all that—you still can’t tell if a candidate has the right skills because the interview is nothing like the actual work? Then it’s time to go beyond the noise.
