About Us

Hi there,

So, you’ve found HackerRank’s blog! For those of you who aren’t familiar, HackerRank is a platform that ranks engineers based on their coding skills and helps companies discover talent faster.

Programmers, improve your coding skills here.

Hiring managers, find great engineers here.

So, what’s the point of our blog? Good question. You’ll find a consistent stream of new thought-provoking, long form content published about twice a month. In these articles, we aim to deconstruct programming and strong technology teams of the future.

You might enjoy perusing through our top 5 most popular posts of all time.
Each of these have made it to the front page of Reddit and Hacker News:

If you like what you see, we’ll send you a quick note when we publish a new post if you take 3 seconds to subscribe to our blog.

  1. I thought you and your readers might be interested in a new Facebook career app, CareerFriend (http://apps.facebook.com/insidecareerinfo), that allows users to leverage the power of the crowd to search for a career or job.

    The CareerFriend App was created by InsideCareerInfo.com (http://www.insidecareerinfo.com/), a career and job review site with thousands of candid firsthand reviews of careers and jobs.

    Here’s how CareerFriend works:
    1. With a click of a button, the app constructs a list of the user’s friends and their jobs and employers.
    2. For friends with a job of interest, the app gives a user an easy way to contact them via Facebook to learn more.
    3. To help explore beyond the user’s network, the app matches each friend’s job with related first-hand career reports on InsideCareerInfo.com.

    I hope you’ll give CareerFriend a try and share it on your web site or Facebook page.  CareerFriend is free to use and requires no registration beyond Facebook – simply link to http://apps.facebook.com/insidecareerinfo.  CareerFriend does not retain any personal information about its users or their friends.  Access to Inside Career Info is also free and can be linked to at http://www.insidecareerinfo.com/.

    I would welcome any comments or questions about our site or Facebook app.
