One of the five biggest companies in the world had a problem. They needed to identify top flight programming talent from schools as well as candidates with professional software experience quickly and economically without sacrificing excellence. The traditional recruiting process was cumbersome and not delivering the quality of candidate they required. The company sought to go beyond the usual indicators like school and work history. They also sought to save time and money by putting candidates through a standardized assessment that would weed out weaker candidates early in the process.
WHY ASPIRING MINDS
This technology company realized they needed a reliable and scalable way to test the coding skills of an extremely diverse applicant group. And they needed to do it quickly. Their applicant pool is consistently large so it was very important that the solution was automated and could handle thousands of applicants’ coding assessments at a time.
Aspiring Minds defines the leading edge of recruitment and interviewing tools. Automata, our AI powered automated evaluator of programming skills and our IRT-based adaptive analytical skill assessment program, was tailor-made for this assignment. These data-driven assessments have an established track record of accurately measuring skill sets and discriminating among candidates whose backgrounds seem otherwise the same.
Automata, which can do a “deep dive” into a candidate’s code with AI/ML, delivered a multiplicity of scores based on coding quality and accuracy. Predictive analytics then linked the coding scores to probability of success on the job. Finally, a data-driven classification of candidates into categories optimized subsequent human intervention and judgment.
Wide pool of candidates. Customized assessments. Speedy results. Better experience. Better candidates.
