DevSKiller Software


 

DevSKiller is a cloud-based human resources (HR) solution specializing in helping businesses hire programmers. This software lets users test applicants on programming skills and knowledge of programming languages.

With DevSKiller, users can create custom tests using their own code base or choose from a library of preset exams. Programming tasks, code review challenges and multiple-choice tests are all available. Users send applicants email invitations to take part in these exams, and candidates can take the exams online at any time.

DevSKiller’s testing system is meant to simulate the type of work candidates would be doing in the positions they are applying for. Exams are designed to be open-book, so candidates use any resources available to them to complete the assignments. Tests are downloadable and can be worked on offline.

DevSKiller automatically scores multiple-choice tests, programming tasks and checks the quality of code. Users can review code code challenges personally or let DevSKiller’s experts review it for them. After assessing candidates’ qualifications, users invite candidates for interviews directly in DevSKiller.

DevSKiller is priced on a per user per month basis. This solution is offered worldwide and has been around since 2013.

Ability to quickly filter candidates with little effort so we only speak with the ones that are technically worth speaking to!

Pros

Ease of use to set up a test with different types of questions, e.g. mixture of Multi choice questions. programming tasks and code reviews.

Cons

Would like more plans and options to choose from the full task list. Its a bit all or nothing at the moment.

Pros

The ability to have developers show their skills early on in the interview process.
Great tool when hiring with large volume of candidates to help you filter down to the ones with the skills you need.

Cons

Although it is user friendly, there are some performance enhancements that can be made that would make this an even better product.

Semantive is a software house, specialized in big data and data science solutions. With DevsKiller we reduced costs and time of our company recruitment process. Right now we can narrow candidates to those with desired competencies.

Pros

The interface is clean and easy to use. Our recruitment had no problem setting things up. With multiple user seats, our developers could even create our own tests and it made our recruiting less time-consuming and fast.

Pros

I have been searching for a job for a little while now and done a few different tests. They were boring and didn't let me use my own IDE as Devskiller did which was really cool!

Cons

From my perspective, it was great but if I was to say one flaw it would probably be the time duration. I am busy person and I needed more time to complete the test. I told the recruiter and they sent a second test with a longer time limit so it worked out well in the end.

Pros

- ease of use
- great user experience for the candidate and the company
- varying questions of various degrees of difficulty that can be used to screen different candidates

Cons

- the programming tasks are quite intense (good thing), but the programing environment is intimidating (lots going on), perhaps a more streamlined approach to programming Q&A would be helpful

Pros

There are many preset tests for different software skills to pick from, and in addition to that there is a custom test feature that allows team managers to build their own tests to focus on skills that are important for them.

Devskiller allows us to perform technical assessments of candidates quickly and effectively, which is especially important for us when we need to scale the teams fast.

Cons

There could be more preset tests for senior skill levels, e.g. C#/.Net. But I have been told by their customer service rep (shout out to Will, thanks for everything!) that these tests will be added in due time so this is not really an issue.

Pros

With Devskiller we are testing candidates against frontend and backend technologies.
Measuring coding skills is automated, we use tests created by our experts and also create programming tests from scratch.

Cons

Creating own coding task could be a bit easier we have had troubles to achieve it. Maybe it is only about our own skills!?
