Scheduling remote interviews for candidates can be a logistical nightmare. Between going back and forth through multiple apps to generate links, checking interviewer and candidate availability, and sending out calendar invites—just scheduling an interview can take up a good chunk of your time. 

At HackerRank, we make the remote interviewing process easy and seamless for our customers. 

That’s why today we are launching a series of integrations with the top two calendar apps: Google Calendar and Outlook.

Introducing G Suite and Office 365 add-ons

Just like any other video conferencing option, these calendar add-ons live within your calendar app and can be used to schedule a remote technical interview.

This option allows you to create a calendar event, add the HackerRank interview link, and send the interview details to the attendees all in one place. The result is less time spent on logistics or switching between apps and more time doing what matters to you.

How the Calendar add-ons work

First, you’ll need to install the add-on from the G Suite Marketplace or Microsoft Appsource. Once the add-on is installed, open your calendar app.

1. Create an event/meeting and enter participant informationScreenshot of Google Calendar and Office 365 HackerRank Integration

2. Choose “HackerRank CodePair” from the video conferencing options

How the Calendar add-ons appear in HackerRank
