About SirionLabs

Founded in 2012 and with offices in the US, India, and Singapore, SirionLabs is a leading enterprise SaaS provider for post-signature contract management. The organization caters to contract life-cycle and supplier management across various industries including energy, pharma, food and beverages, healthcare, and telecom.

The platform significantly reduces the cost of supplier governance by automating complex procedures across key governance disciplines of contract, performance, financial, relationship, and risk management.

Technical screening using HackerEarth

SirionLabs is predominantly a product company, so it’s no surprise that 70% of its hiring needs are for engineers.
The process starts with:
  • Screening of resumes to shortlist candidates
  • Sending a HackerEarth test to the shortlisted candidates
  • Conducting interviews with those who’ve been selected for the final round

The team uses HackerEarth Assessments to hire technical talent across different skill sets and experience ranging from entry-level positions to technical leads (with 8.5 years of experience.) The organization leverages HackerEarth Assessments for lateral hiring as well as campus hiring in the ratio of 70:30.

SirionLabs uses HackerEarth Assessments to evaluate candidates for technical positions such as front end developers, Java developers, quality analysts, database analysts, MIS executives, and DevOps engineers. Additionally, the organization uses the custom tests feature on HackerEarth to hire for certain non-technical roles.

The stumbling block(s)

Before using HackerEarth, SirionLabs relied on manual assessments (pen and paper test) that took a significant amount of time and exhausted the organization’s resources quickly. In addition, the recruitment team at SirionLabs found it challenging to:
  • Identify high-quality candidates
  • Reduce the time taken to hire a candidate
  • Manage remote hiring
The organization’s quest to find a solution to improve the quality of its screening process led them to HackerEarth.

SirionLabs has been using HackerEarth since 2016 and is extremely satisfied with the platform.
