Coupa has built their brand around “Value as a Service '' and believes in offering obsessive and unwavering commitment to make their customers successful. They were looking to expand their team by hiring tech talent for entry-level positions. However, one of the biggest challenges for technical recruitment was evaluation of coding skills. Instead of relying on resumes and University projects, Coupa wanted the candidates to showcase their coding skills through an automated test. Besides coding skills, Coupa also wanted to assess the candidates on Aptitude skills.
In the absence of an assessment partner, the process was taking time which led to many candidates being hired by other companies.
Coupa wanted to transform their University Hiring strategy to make it more effective and efficient. They partnered with iMocha to create tests for entry-level tech hiring roles. The test consisted of Aptitude and Coding questions. Using iMocha, Coupa could add their own questions to the test. The Code Replay feature gave a line by line playback of the code written by the candidates. This helped them determine the Code Quality, Cleanliness, and the candidate’s approach to the solution. Coupa designed a test that was concise, had clear and crisp questions, and provided a good candidate experience.
Coupa were able to shortlist and hire the best candidates through skill-wise analytical reports.
