Let’s be honest, nowadays it’s hard to imagine a recruitment process where the evaluation of your skills through a technical test is the most attractive part of it. Most companies are using a fairly standard type of test, where the candidate’s experience is far from being one of their top priorities. So… it’s time to turn the tables, isn’t it?
But let’s start at the beginning. What have we discovered in these years of work, with hundreds of recruitment processes behind us? This 👇
- Nobody wants to spend hours and hours doing three, four or more technical tests, one for each position they are applying for. Well, it seems logical.
- The technical tests that companies use are usually long and abstract, far removed from the problems that the developer will face in the job. Wrong.
- Candidates do not receive any feedback if they do not continue in the hiring process.
All in all, technical testing, nowadays, is inefficient, repetitive and complicated, a poorly set up escape room. That’s why we decided to create our Rviewer platform and a proper technical evaluation concept: our Challenges.
Technical tests oriented to Real World Problems, created by developers and designed for developers. And with them (here comes the bombshell!), you will be able to apply for more than one job offer without having to do a different one for each position. We want you to invest only the time you need, and the rest you can spend on what you want 😉
Let’s discover the challenges!
Challenges created by Tech Mentors
The first thing we did was to find a way to evaluate the developers, taking into account their experience and needs. To do this, we brought together industry specialists in different technologies and with experience on both sides of the hiring process: our Tech Mentors.
We are talking about professionals who have worked for TOP companies such as Google, Microsoft or Dynatrace, who helped us to create our own technical Challenges and improve them to optimise this part of the recruitment process. So 👇
- All our Challenges have the developer’s experience as a priority: they have been created to avoid the boredom of typical tests, and are oriented to solve practical problems for each technology. No algorithmic tests.
- Our Tech Mentors accompany the candidate throughout the Challenge process: first with a video kick off where the objectives and characteristics of the challenge are presented, and then with the video resolution so that you can understand what you have done well and what you have not.
The aim is that, in addition to passing the technical test and aspiring to a job, you can learn during the process and make the most of your work thanks to the feedback. And this should always be the case.
A defence space for the developer
Unlike traditional recruitment processes with technical proof, when you complete one of our challenges you will find a space where you can defend your work in video, audio or text format.
In this way, we allow you to explain the reasoning that led you to solve the Challenge, and to specify technical aspects and decisions that will provide context to the work delivered. Sounds good! ✨
A complete skills report for you
Once you have finished the Challenge you will receive a full skills report with details of your performance in the test about your strengths and weaknesses.
Something that is not even considered in conventional code testing, but is essential from our point of view.
One Challenge: lots of job offers
And the final bombshell, our gold key.
The main advantage of our Challenges vs. conventional technical tests is that the result of your test will help you to apply for more than one job offer.
No more having to take a technical test for each job offer you apply for. If you take, for example, our Typescript Challenge created by Bettatech, a prominent developer and Youtuber in the sector, you will be able to use the results to apply for the vast majority of job offers on our platform where Typescript is required as the main skill.
Cool, isn’t it? If you want to try it out, we invite you to take a look at our library of challenges and start doing the one that most appeals to you.
Let us know how it goes 😉
