Scale your screening process

Easily create and send role-specific assignments to multiple candidates to validate technical ability. They each get a private link (and a due date) to access and complete their assignments.

Focus on hiring great people, not managing the screening process.

We help you get more signal from candidate submissions so you can make the right decision.
