There are three Code Assessment capabilities on Coderbyte:

  • Screening: Typically an early step in a recruiting process, screening consists of code challenges and automated grading. Select from 400+ challenges to create and customize code screening assessments for any technical role in minutes. Pick from one of our templates or automate your existing process using our library of challenges and skill-based questions. Learn more about Code Screening Assessments.
  • Interviews: Real-time code pairing with video and audio is a critical step in an hiring process. Conduct remote interviews with candidates in a live programming environment. Create lightweight interview templates and simulate whiteboarding sessions with top candidates. Learn more about Code Interview Assessments.
  • Projects: Take-home assignments via GitHub can enable you to identify the top candidate in your pipeline. Create your own real-world assignments that you can view, run, and analyze on the web via our integration with GitHub. You can even compensate candidates right from Coderbyte for completing lengthier projects. Learn more about Code Project Assessments.
