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.
Jonatan from Ericsson
DevSkiller helps make tech recruiting easier, faster, and smoother because it provides many different tests for various programming languages, libraries and technologies, with different difficulty levels. The tests include real programming projects and not only questions which I think is very valuable. The rating of the tests is automatic and takes into consideration not only implemented functionality but also coding style, following best practices etc. It is also very easy to use.
I have found no real drawbacks to DevSkiller. What might further improve the product would be to keep building the test library with options to test even more libs/languages.
Devskiller is a great way to evaluate efficiently the developers technical skills. Their predefined tests are perfect for cost-efficient recruitment processing or you can simply create your own evaluation using this tool. Devskiller also offers a great customer service and ensure to provide you with a plan that will meet with your requirements. User friendly for both the recruiter and the candidates.
It would be great to eventually have bigger selection of software products, technologies, or languages to evaluate in predefined tests.
Natália from Sensedia (DA Software e Serviço S/A)
I bougth a simple plan, so we dont have a lot of options about technology.
For us it is very important to have a lot of technology like Java, .Net, Java Scrip.
All time on Customer Support and Sales were very nice!
And it is ease to create the tests. I created 2 tests in the same day.

Ability to quickly filter candidates with little effort so we only speak with the ones that are technically worth speaking to!
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.
Would like more plans and options to choose from the full task list. Its a bit all or nothing at the moment.
yitzchak from Smart Stock 360
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.
Although it is user friendly, there are some performance enhancements that can be made that would make this an even better product.
Justyna from Cloudity Sp. z o.o.
It saves time and allows one to find the best candidate to a team.
DevSkiller has an intuitive and user friendly interface. Makes the recruitment process faster and more efficient.
More subscription options would definitely be an advantage, yet the support team reacts to the customer needs fast.

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.
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.
Monika from SWPS University
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!
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.
Tanveer from WonUpIt, Inc.
- 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
- 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
Kady from CCS
Their customer support team is phenomenal. They are very helpful and responsive, quick to help out when we needed it.
Stelvin from Excel Bangkok
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.
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.

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