Pros: Out of the box, we're supplied with relevant questions and programming solutions we can customize a test with. It didn't take long at all for us to get a list of questions the team liked together in a test, and start testing candidates in our funnel.

There's a large pool of format of questions- we don't need to format the coding questions into weird multiple choice questions where you select the correct code as other platforms have you do. Along the same vein, we can have the candidate complete coding projects that are similar to work our developers do each day: find and fix the existing bug(s), implement a new feature, or perform a code review (similar to Bitbucket or Github pull request code reviews).

We ended up writing a few of our own questions, which wasn't difficult, that allowed us to test candidates how they'd perform against some of our own code. The code reviews especially have been great at determining the candidate's skill level based on the feedback they give.

Being able to have the candidate download/upload code from Devskiller so they can modify it in their own IDE, or allowing them to grab the code from a temporary Github repository is a big plus.

Cons: Some bugs had come up, such as not being able to turn on/off an option in a test question. These were resolved quickly in a few hours after sending an email to the support email.

The test isn't fully automated for some types of questions (as you would expect for code reviews), but there's also not a way to give automatic partial credit on multiple-choice questions. This requires us to go through the test questions individually to give partial credit (4 / 5 correct doesn't seem like a 0% to us), but the time isn't significant.

Brackets seem to break the SQL questions, which is odd and hangs some candidates up.

Overall: We've cut down the amount of in-person interviews we need to hold by 65+% by being able to realize what the level of experience the candidate demonstrates within code very similar to our own. When we do bring in a candidate, we have a good baseline idea of where their skillset it at, and can tailor the in-person interview to allow us to determine the candidate's rate-of-growth and dive deeper into what they know.

The product is amazing. The whole flow for the admin but also the candidate is seamless.

Pros: I really like the professionality that is shown to the candidates by using this product. In addition it is really easy to use, and has a braod library of predefinded tests. The admin panel is so wel organized with so many settings make it very easy to configure the test experience exactly on my needs. Customer support is very helpfull and professional and it seems that even though the product is excelent they still find ways of improving and also updating their database including much more tasks.

Cons: My only issue is that i would like to have more code review questions to choose from. However that is just a small issue for me.

Overall: DevsKiller gave us the opportunity to complete utilize and customize our recruitment process as a company. Using a variety of features but also because of it's seameless workflows we benefit so much from it in many ways.

Pros: DevSkiller helps make tech recruiting easier, faster, and smoother because it provides many different tests for various programming languages, libraries and technologies, with different difficulty levels. The tests include real programming projects and not only questions which I think is very valuable. The rating of the tests is automatic and takes into consideration not only implemented functionality but also coding style, following best practices etc. It is also very easy to use.

Cons: I have found no real drawbacks to DevSkiller. What might further improve the product would be to keep building the test library with options to test even more libs/languages.

Pros: There are many testing sites out there but Devskiller has so many different tests to choose from, that it was a no-brainer. As we were looking for someone with strong time and dates skills, their "advanced" PHP test was almost like creating a custom made test for my needs (I believe they even offer custom made tests, if your budget allows)
Super user friendly site and they offer a limited free version also.

Cons: it was a bit pricey for us as were a lean startup but worth every penny! It sure beats hiring someone unqualified!

Overall: ability to test developer candidates. as we hire remotely, I cant imagine hiring someone without running them through these tests prior.

Pros: I have used other similar solutions like Codility, Qualified.io, and also trialed HackerRank. DevSkiller offers the best mix of powerful features for the price.
Their customer support is always very responsive and knowledgeable and willing to work with you to tailor the product to your specific needs.
I also really like that they also include code review and bug fix type tasks.

Cons: The user interface is a little complicated and could probably be made more intuitive.
Library of tasks could be expanded to cover other (less popular) technologies.

Great Product!

Pros: Devskiller is a great way to evaluate efficiently the developers technical skills. Their predefined tests are perfect for cost-efficient recruitment processing or you can simply create your own evaluation using this tool. Devskiller also offers a great customer service and ensure to provide you with a plan that will meet with your requirements. User friendly for both the recruiter and the candidates.

Cons: It would be great to eventually have bigger selection of software products, technologies, or languages to evaluate in predefined tests.

Pros: It is super easy to give my developer candidates a real programming test. Candidates love it and their results do a good job of predicting future performance. It is easy to use and you can choose from their library of premade programming tasks or build your own.

Cons: Devskiller is a super easy way to identify the best dev candidates to invite for an interview. But I would love more premade programming tasks to choose from.

Overall: We were looking for a tech screen that got us better results than the algorithmic tests we had used before. We tried Devskiller and never looked back.

The results that candidates get give a good indication of their future performance so we no longer have to spend time and money bringing every candidate in for a technical interview.

Pros: Having the ability to build custom tests in the exact environment we're looking for is amazing. The candidates can choose how they want to complete the tests, one of which is downloading the complete project and working in the IDE they are familiar with. It's a more valid test since that is how they will be working once we hire them.

Cons: The notification on when a candidate completes the test is only sent to the person that invited the candidate (in our case it's someone from HR). I only get notified to check the test if the HR person let's me know they are done. It would work better if I could subscribe and always be notified, even if I didn't invite the candidate.

Overall: Saves a lot of time screening applicants for development positions.

We've used it to screen iOS developers. The software has been super easy to use.

Pros: - ease of use
- great user experience for the candidate and the company
- varying questions of various degrees of difficulty that can be used to screen different candidates

Cons: - the programming tasks are quite intense (good thing), but the programing environment is intimidating (lots going on), perhaps a more streamlined approach to programming Q&A would be helpful

Pros: The ability to have developers show their skills early on in the interview process.
Great tool when hiring with large volume of candidates to help you filter down to the ones with the skills you need.

Cons: Although it is user friendly, there are some performance enhancements that can be made that would make this an even better product.

Previously we spent a lot of hours on candidates selection, actually devskiller is saving our time!

Pros: With Devskiller we are testing candidates against frontend and backend technologies.
Measuring coding skills is automated, we use tests created by our experts and also create programming tests from scratch.

Cons: Creating own coding task could be a bit easier we have had troubles to achieve it. Maybe it is only about our own skills!?

Pros: There are many preset tests for different software skills to pick from, and in addition to that there is a custom test feature that allows team managers to build their own tests to focus on skills that are important for them.

Devskiller allows us to perform technical assessments of candidates quickly and effectively, which is especially important for us when we need to scale the teams fast.

Cons: There could be more preset tests for senior skill levels, e.g. C#/.Net. But I have been told by their customer service rep (shout out to Will, thanks for everything!) that these tests will be added in due time so this is not really an issue.

Pros: For many years we created our own tests for candidates and marked them manually ourselves. Candidate interviews generally took up 10 to 20 hours of senior resource just in technical competency reviews. The option to upload to a git repository, automatically run unit tests and summarize results is by far the best feature of the software. Senior resource is spending an hour or two reviewing test results now. Other good features: solid library of built in tests, easy to search, easy to mix and match questions, easy to create your own questions.

Cons: The lack of some tests in the first paid tier seems arbitrary, iOs is the one we missed most in our case.

Overall: We have reduced the load on senior resource for technical competency reviews, our great techs can now spend more time on tech and less time on marking.

Pros: I have been searching for a job for a little while now and done a few different tests. They were boring and didn't let me use my own IDE as Devskiller did which was really cool!

Cons: From my perspective, it was great but if I was to say one flaw it would probably be the time duration. I am busy person and I needed more time to complete the test. I told the recruiter and they sent a second test with a longer time limit so it worked out well in the end.
