“Evaluating coding skills through pen-paper assessments was a challenge. Recruiting via premier technology institutions means that you need to have assessments of top caliber. iMocha has the best skill library to evaluate top developers. The entire process was online, and the instant report generation meant that we had a list of the top candidates to interview. This saved us tremendous time and costs as well.”

the challenges
As a part of its expansion, Almabase was looking to hire the best software developers from IITs – the premier universities in India. It needed to put together a recruitment strategy that would help select the best from the best.
The challenge
  • Campus recruitment logistics
  • Time-consuming pen-paper assessments
  • Evaluation of coding skills

Almabase relied on pen-and-paper assessments, but to measure coding skills, this seemed like an outdated and unreliable method. It requires tremendous planning and time, and the administrative costs are higher. Almabase wanted to shift to a reliable, data-driven, and time-effective hiring process.

Almabase conducted campus drives at 2 IIT campuses. It used iMocha’s coding tests to evaluate coding skills. This eliminated the manual time taken to evaluate each candidate’s test. The in-depth reports allowed the hiring team to make data-driven decisions. Top-performing candidates were shortlisted for interviews.

Features used:

Coding tests with multiple difficulty ranges – Easy, Medium, Hard

Advanced proctoring mechanism

Skill-wise reports :

Proved indispensable to conducting such competitive hiring.

At the university hiring level, after a certain point, all the resumes start looking similar. Adding a coding test helped Almabase filter out unqualified candidates. What mattered was not the GPA but the coding skills, and iMocha’s coding assessments helped Almabase earmark the best coding talent.
