What is Woven?

Built for high-growth engineering teams, Woven is an evidence-based hiring platform that allows HR teams to find the right candidate using performance-based testing and work simulations. Woven is designed to help software engineering departments find the most talented and qualified candidate while reducing hiring bias and managing candidate feedback. 

Woven allows hiring managers to triage applications daily to cover the influx of applications received day-to-day. Hiring managers can provide 1-hr work simulations to candidates to test the performance of their skills in a real-life scenario. These performance tests are then benchmarked against the current team skillset to identify value before interviews are scheduled with a manager and engineering team. ...

Great assessment tool for employers AND candidates

Woven seems like a fair and informative way to assess a developer's expertise before taking the time to interview them or go through whiteboard assessements. I had a very positive experience with the two Woven assessments I've been through so far. The feedback I received on my assessments was reasonable and encouraging, and suggested ways that I can improve.

Pros

Receiving feedback is vital for improvement. As a job applicant, Woven provided me with feedback that helped me understand what I needed to learn to improve my qualifications. Even before my evaluation, it directed me to resources to help me refresh my topical knowledge, and let me take a mock evaluation for practice.

Cons

I have no complaints. The system was easy to learn and use.

Repairing the interview process

Woven is the new way to get talented individuals on your team. They assess technical as well as soft skills so you know that the Dev you're thinking about bringing onto your team will actually work with your team! They take a very personalized approach to the assessment process which shows they are giving you and your team the respect and attention they deserve. I feel great about working with Woven in the future.

Pros

You're probably used to getting the same old DSA assessments with zero real-world relevance: like "invert a binary search tree" - not with Woven. The technical assessment is superb. It encompasses real-world scenarios and is graded much more care and consideration than "make it pass these unit tests" With Woven, I had a real person look over my solutions and give me great personalized feedback on what they liked and what I could improve on. The whole experience felt very collaborative. 2000% would recommend.

Cons

The directions could be a little more clear but overall their platform is very good. I didn't try dark mode but at least its there - making the interface look more like VSC may lead to some better results during assessments as its familiar and easier to "think in code" UI could use a little more modernized polish but the platform has a great base.

Great platform

I use Woven to solve some recruitment exercises.

Pros

Excellent platform to accomplish the recruitment process with technical test part. Great feedback, recommended 100%!

Cons

I think maybe including some demo video could be exceptional. And also include references to materials that could help you do better at other times.

A very pleasant experience as an applicant

I had a good experience with both the software automated parts of the system and the people with whom I interacted there that were driving the feedback cycle. I would recommend this to others who were looking for this kind of software and experience.

Pros

I felt it had a good quality review system and editor for the kind of thing it is, which is a software test system for job applicants. The feedback I received was top notch and timely.

Cons

Nothing jumped out at me. I think there was like one point during a process that instructions were unclear but I don't think that was software's fault.
