About The Company

This company specializes in Outsourced Product Development. Delivering successful software products with an amalgamation of great ideas and cutting-edge technology are their forte, including good planning, remarkable design, disciplined execution, and a highly committed team with a sense of ownership.

The Challenge

Specializing in outsourcing product development means the availability of high-quality technical resources to ensure fast software deliveries. Before using iMocha, the recruitment team relied solely on technical interviews. In the absence of an automated coding skills evaluation assessment, the hiring managers were spending a lot of their primary time conducting interviews. Each candidate was given a manual coding assessment, and the evaluation was done manually. This was time intensive and impacted the project deliverables.

The Solution

The company evaluated multiple platforms and decided to go ahead with iMocha. Since their requirement was for technical and development roles, iMocha’s extensive coding skills and features such as code replay were a deal clincher. The company created assessments for:

  • Angular Developer
  • Java Developer
  • Full-stack Developer
  • Node.js Developer
  • QA Tester
  • React.js Developer
  • .Net Developer

For each assessment, the recruitment team selected the questions from a pool of easy, medium, and hard difficulty levels. The assessments were sent to the candidates with proctoring measures in place to ensure cheating prevention. The candidates who performed well were called for interviews, and hiring managers reported that it saved almost 50% of their interview time. Hiring Managers could refer to the coding reports and use the code replay feature – a video of the candidate’s coding solution that gives more profound insights into their analytical thinking. This helped them highlight the best candidates.

Results with iMocha

The company reduced their interview time by 50%. Their hiring managers now only interview candidates that performed well in the assessments.
