Looking for HackerRank alternatives?

Adaface is the best HackerRank alternative to evaluate the on-the-job skills of your candidates.

Adaface is "you'll never go back" better


First we’d just like to give a quick nod to the team at HackerRank. They are part of the ecosystem helping companies hire great candidates and have been in the space for a while. So what’s the difference between HackerRank and Adaface? Sure there are features and product stuff that’s different but the biggest difference is how much we care about candidate experience. We want to ensure every candidate leaves the screening experience with a smile. We believe that status quo tech assessment platforms are not a fair way for companies to evaluate candidates. We started Adaface to help companies find strong teammates by assessing on-the-job skills required for a role. We set up 45 min candidate-friendly, custom assessments that test for on-the-job skills.

Anställningscheferna ansåg att de genom de tekniska frågor som de ställde under panelintervjuerna kunde berätta vilka kandidater som hade bättre poäng och differentierade med dem som inte gjorde så bra. Dom är mycket nöjd med kvaliteten på kandidater som är kortlistade med AdaFace -screening.

Why Adaface is the best Alternative to HackerRank? 👇

Adaface vs HackerRank (Key differences)

1. Question bank

Adaface: Adaface questions are designed to test for on-the-job skills, as opposed to theoretical knowledge. They are designed to simulate scenarios that the candidates might come across while performing the role, are hence the scores reflective of qualifications for the job. There are no trick questions included just to filter out candidates. Every candidate gets a fair chance to showcase their skills.

You can check Adaface sample questions.

HackerRank: HackerRank has a vast library of questions aimed at core internal concepts of data structures and algorithms. These questions are proven to test candidates ability to optimize hard algorithms within the time constraints. This works best for roles that require niche algorithm design skills, similar to that of a competitive programmer or to test fresh graduates.

2. Test taking rate

Adaface: Our conversational assessments have an average completion rate of 86%.

HackerRank: Traditional assessment platforms like HackerRank see a test taking rate of ~50%. In some geographies, this can be as low as 30%.

3. Candidate experience and candidate sentiment

Instead of forcing candidates to go through a traditional assessment, conversational assessments use friendly messaging and intelligent chatbots to engage candidates and screen them for your role. Conversational assessments are the best way to start a relationship with your candidates.

We understand how much candidate experience matters. Our bot, Ada, provides a friendly experience to candidates throughout the assessment (right from a warm invitation email, to giving details about the role & company, giving hints they are stuck etc.) and making sure that candidates have a smile on their face at the end of the chat, irrespective of the result.

Custom assessments

Adaface assessments are tailored to your job description by our subject matter experts from our library of 10000+ non-googleable questions. Once you sign up for any of our plans, you can request custom assessments from your dashboard, which will be set up in <48 hours. Here is what you can do with custom assessments:

  1. Multiple skills: We can set up custom tests which can test candidates for multiple skills. For eg. for your accounting role, the test can have questions on accounting, finance, Excel, logical reasoning, verbal reasoning and English.
  2. Experience level/ salary: The assessments will be customized in difficulty according to the experience level you are targeting.
  3. Adaptive assessments: For e.g. for your front-end engineering role you are looking for a candidate who is proficient in either React or Angular, the candidate will first be asked for their preference, and they will be asked questions on only that skill.

Aptitude assessments

In addition to technical and coding assessments, Adaface also offers a wide range of aptitude based assessments. Check out our range of aptitude tests.

Assessments for non-technical roles

Adaface also offers assessments for non-technical roles like the Excel Test, Google Adwords Test, Customer Service Test, Accounting Test etc. Check out the full list of 700+ tests.

Short assessments

Candidates have reserved lesser time for giving assessments. For this particular reason, we design short assessments so that candidate invests as less time as possible, but still enough to showcase their expertise.

Background

Both Adaface and HackerRank are pre-employment screening software that allow companies to automate first round interviews. While some features are similar (like proctoring, social listening for questions leaking) they have major differences that one might consider while deciding which solution to choose.

What is Adaface?

Adaface helps you identify the top candidates for all your tech roles and save crucial engineering time by screening candidates with 750+ custom assessments for on-the-job skills (all programming languages, frameworks, aptitude). Top candidates prefer Adaface because our bot, Ada has a friendly chat involving relevant code challenges with them as opposed to asking trick questions on a test.

Solve
You work as a Solutions Architect for a data analysis firm. The company stores large datasets on Amazon S3, and you've been tasked with setting up an Amazon EC2 instance to process this data. The EC2 instance will fetch data from S3, process it, and then write the results back to a different S3 bucket.
                    
                    To ensure security, the EC2 instance should not have direct internet access, and it should only be able to communicate with the S3 buckets. You've decided to place the EC2 instance in a VPC private subnet with a CIDR block of 10.0.1.0/24. The associated security group is set to deny all inbound traffic and allow all outbound traffic.
                    
                    Which additional configuration should you make to enable the EC2 instance to access the S3 buckets while complying with the security requirements?
A: Modify the Network ACL of the subnet to allow outbound connections to the IP range of the S3 service.
                    B: Assign a Public IP to the EC2 instance and update the security group to allow inbound and outbound traffic to S3.
                    C: Add a NAT Gateway in the private subnet and update the route tables to direct S3 traffic to the NAT Gateway.
                    D: Create an S3 VPC Gateway Endpoint and update the route tables for the private subnet to direct S3 traffic to the VPC Endpoint.
                    E: Create a VPN connection from the VPC to the S3 buckets.

Visitors Count
Strings
Logic
Solve
A manager hires a staff member to keep a record of the number of men, women, and children visiting the museum daily. The staff will note W if any women visit, M for men, and C for children. You need to write code that takes the string that represents the visits and prints the count of men, woman and children. The sequencing should be in decreasing order. 
Example:
                    
                    Input:
                    WWMMWWCCC
                    
                    Expected Output: 
                    4W3C2M
                    
                    Explanation: 
                    ‘W’ has the highest count, then ‘C’, then ‘M’. 
⚠️⚠️⚠️ Note:
                    - The input is already parsed and passed to a function.
                    - You need to "print" the final result (not return it) to pass the test cases.
                    - If the input is- “MMW”, then the expected output is "2M1W" since there is no ‘C’.
                    - If any of them have the same count, the output should follow this order - M, W, C.

You are creating a Power BI report where users need to dynamically filter data based on a range of dates. The report has a Sales table with columns Date, ProductID, and Amount. You decide to use a Power Query parameter to allow users to select a start and end date, which will then filter the Sales table accordingly. The parameter is named DateRange and has a type of List. You need to write a Power Query M formula to filter the Sales table based on the selected date range. The DateRange parameter contains two dates: the first item is the start date, and the second item is the end date. How should the M formula be structured to achieve this functionality?
A: Table.SelectRows(Sales, each [Date] >= DateRange{0} and [Date] <= DateRange{1})
                    
                    B: Sales{[Date] >= DateRange{0}, [Date] <= DateRange{1}}
