The Secret to
Hiring World-Class
Tech Talent

Chapter: Executive Summary

Today’s data-driven recruitment aims at building an optimized future of recruitment that can both recruit a skilled tech workforce and build an employer’s brand. The cost of hiring, onboarding, and upskilling a new employee along with the dwindling size of the tech workforce has forced recruiters to look beyond conventional hiring practices.

In today’s competitive hiring market, investing in a viable technical recruiting tool that can help in strategizing all stages of your hiring is of paramount importance. Even more essential is finding the right technical recruitment partner that can empathize with your company’s needs and help you build a qualified workforce without stretching your budget or time.

Technical Recruitment in 2023

Tech recruiting in 2023 is all about finding talent in the right place at the right time. Gone are the days of relying on job boards and waiting for candidates to apply to open positions. Recruiting is as much about building a brand that attracts new prospects as it is about lowering turnover rates.

Creating an elastic hiring process that can withstand the rapidly changing economic landscape and retain talented employees is another focus area.

As the demand for tech roles rises, more and more recruiters find that giving potential applicants real-world problems to solve and judging them based on their talent and not their background leads to discovering much better prospects.

Nearly 80% of talent professionals ranked diversity hiring as the most important 2023 trend in the recruiting industry (Forbes).

Employers are turning to data-driven recruiting to eliminate bias in hiring decisions and increase the overall quality of hires. Early adopters of AI recruiting software have seen a 75% reduction in cost per screen and a 35% decrease in turnover rate (Source).


Scope of Work

It costs about $30,000 to hire a developer and hours to source, screen, interview, and hire a candidate (Source). And these steps need to be taken before the top candidates are off the job market. HackerEarth helps you effortlessly hire the best developers thanks to a powerful suite of virtual recruiting tools that help identify, assess, interview, and engage developers.

Intent to job change


Create conversations around your brand and market your Hackathons for maximum outreach. Let us help you find qualified developers with industry-leading Hackathons.


Technical Assessments

Identify the right candidates for the job by giving them programming assessments that simulate actual on-the-job tasks and shortlist only those candidates that meet your expectations


Remote Interviewing

With FaceCode, an interviewer need not ever change tabs, and a candidate has all the tools required to focus on writing code at their disposal. Easily set up, invite and conduct coding interviews.


Upskill and Engage

HackerEarth’s L&D assessment tool can help effortlessly benchmark your tech team’s performance and track their growth, while our internal hackathons are fully curated, managed services aimed at fostering innovation.


Strategic Value

Being a candidates’ market, at any given time, there might be several open positions in an Engineering team. These positions need to be filled before the top candidates are off the job market. HackerEarth helps in cutting down the time to hire by about half and also ensures that TA teams don’t miss out on potential candidates who might be a right fit for their company.


Skill-based assessments go one step beyond resumes, marks, and references. Those alone do not give insights into the true potential of a candidate. HackerEarth also warrants inclusive hiring with insight-rich reports and a leaderboard after every assessment.

Another key but often overlooked value of a hiring process is that great candidate experience goes hand in hand with a strong employer brand. Many job seekers rely on employer review sites and any negative experiences on Glassdoor may hurt you. Well-positioned companies can win the race for talent with a candidate-friendly recruitment process.
