About Us

Tech Assessment Tool Developed by the Ops Team

In 2021, we were looking to expand our DevOps team but yielded no success. Having conducted dozens of interviews with no hire, we were spending lots of time, and our current interview structure didn't allow us to fully gain a picture of candidates’ expertise.

We decided that the best way to assess engineers’ skills is by giving them an environment with a pre-configured problem to solve.

We found that most current tech assessment tools provide only theoretical and algorithm-based questions when we needed a full, product-like environment. The ones that could charge more than a small startup like us could afford for recruitment only.

We decided to develop our own platform that could help engineers like us create engaging, real-world assessments at an affordable-for-a-startup price.
