We’re pleased to announce that HackerEarth has added yet another ATS to its list of integrations. This time around, we’ve added an integration with Workable, a leading hiring platform that enables recruiters and hiring managers to source and identify the right talent for their teams.

HackerEarth+Workable: Identify top talent, faster 

The integration between HackerEarth and Workable facilitates an efficient way for recruitment teams to screen candidates and streamline the technical recruitment workflow. Using this integration, you can post jobs on Workable, setup HackerEarth assessments and video interviews, invite candidates, and generate and share detailed candidate reports with your team. The best part is, you can do all this directly from the Workable interface without switching back and forth between the two platforms.
