"I needed a breadth of solutions. Something that can test an Oracle Database Consultant, a Google Cloud Architect, or a Big Data Engineer, and I couldn't find any solution until I found iMocha. Nothing I found came close to the breadth of the question banks that were already available. But, the ability to import our own questions on iMocha was a key factor for getting buy-in from my team for choosing iMocha.”

Since Pythian believed in the power of skills assessments for discovering the best-fit candidates, they had incorporated skills assessments to their recruitment process for a long time. But they followed a manual approach, which was causing issues like:
These concerns were becoming increasingly exasperating for Pythian’s hiring team. Therefore, they needed a better solution to take them away from the pen-and-paper mode of candidate assessments and lead them to one that leverages innovative hiring practices to get the best talent.
Pythian started its journey with iMocha in 2019, primarily because iMocha facilitates its users with customization and flexibility, following a customer-first approach. Pythian wanted a skills assessment platform where their team could add their own questions and offer them flexibility. With iMocha, Pythian could reach out to iMocha's product team if they have any additional requirements without any hesitations.
Pythian also wanted to prevent malpractices during their assessments. iMocha, through its unique AI-enabled innovative proctoring features, offered the perfect solution for this problem. Along with proctoring, they find AI-LogicBox and AI-EnglishPro highly beneficial features for assessing their candidates.
Moving forward with the results Pythian gained after incorporating iMocha, they saw an incredible reduction in their time and cost to hire. They have also enhanced candidate experience, reduced dropout rates in their recruitment funnel, overcame malpractices with proctoring, and so forth.
"The time-to-hire when I first joined was, on average, 90 days. Now, with iMocha, our time to fill is 34 days. So, if we consider the last five years since I've been in charge, we've significantly reduced the time-to-fill by optimizing our strategy with iMocha."
