Data science is the new black when it comes to hiring, except it's a notoriously elusive skillset to come by as it pulls from both engineering and computer science alike.
That alone makes it hard to apply a traditional recruiting process to hiring data scientists (or AI/ML engineers, depending on how you define that role).
HackerRank, which has long offered a hiring platform for engineers, has recently announced that it wants to solve this problem by adding a data science platform for recruiters and hiring managers who are looking to find the right data scientists for their teams.
HackerRank Projects for Data Science, as the new product is called, helps businesses test how well candidates can handle standard, real-world scenarios like data wrangling and building models based on this data, as well as their skills in visualizing data. Companies can decide which skills they are looking for and then provide all candidates with the same problem set.
“With exponential growth in big data and companies using data to better serve customers across industries — from recommendations on your TV to autonomous driving in vehicles — the demand for skilled data scientists will continue to grow,” said HackerRank CEO and Co-founder Vivek Ravisankar.
