“You would be wrong to assume that CodeFights is just like any other other tool to automate technical recruiting on the markets. CodeFights should be your weapon when it comes to attracting technical talent.” – Vidal Gonzalez, Wizeline CTO
Wizeline builds scalable software solutions (like AI-driven chatbots) for its customers. Since they create software for other companies, they need to make sure that their engineering team is full of innovative, talented engineers who can deliver amazing products quickly.
Wizeline is a truly international company, with offices all over the world. When they started growing their Guadalajara office, the talent acquisition team needed a way to scale up their engineering team quickly. But they didn’t want to hire just anybody – they wanted to hire strong, innovative engineers. This meant that they needed a strong recruitment system. They researched recruiting tools that could help them reach their hiring goals. Ceci Salazar, the Talent Acquisition Manager at Wizeline, heard about CodeFights Recruiter from a coworker.
Ceci and her team tried CodeFights Recruiter’s sourcing service. The Wizeline engineering team tried out the Test and Interview tools. Together, they agreed that CodeFights Recruiter would be a great way to streamline their technical recruiting process. Vidal Gonzalez, Wizeline’s CTO, says that CodeFights’ tools are a great fit for Wizeline’s engineering-driven company culture.
Talented engineering candidates
Wizeline uses CodeFights Recruiter Source to get access to pre-qualified engineers from the CodeFights community. Candidates they get from CodeFights, like Ziad Mohamed, tend to have higher conversion rates. The Wizeline talent acquisition team loves knowing that the candidates they get through CodeFights are driven and challenge-oriented, and that they love to keep learning. The team’s recruitment process has been streamlined and simplified with CodeFights Recruiter.
It’s simple for their recruiting team to send out coding tests since so much of the process is automated. This means the recruiting team can immediately assess inbound applicants and prospects who have been sourced from online job boards. Since they are testing candidate skills at the very top of the recruitment funnel, this eliminates unqualified people right away. Ultimately, this saves the engineering team a lot of time, since they don’t need to spend time screening or interviewing candidates who don’t have the necessary skills.
Vidal loves how much data CodeFights Recruiter gives to his hiring team. While the candidate information is useful, he also appreciates the level of insight that data from the hiring team gives him into their interviewing process. So if the statistics from an individual interviewer looks abnormal, he and his team can dig into the interview data to see what’s going on. The standardization and consistency that they get using the Test and Interview tools means that he feels confident in the decisions that his team makes about candidates.
