HackerRank announced a new remote hiring solution and the formation of the independent Skills Advisory Council to standardize hiring.

The company made updates to CodePair to facilitate a significant piece of the hiring process that has shifted from on-site interviews to remote.  

“While hiring in many categories has slowed or stopped, the market for tech hiring is expected to bounce back rapidly. We are future proofing our solution not for the new normal but for the forever different,” said Vivek Ravisankar, the co-Founder and CEO of HackerRank. “With these new product enhancements, we’re ensuring our customers can meet their business objectives and accelerate their innovation while maintaining a world-class experience for their candidates and for their hiring managers.”

The solution features virtual whiteboarding and interviewer guidelines as well as scorecards and candidate packet.
