The Leading Technical Assessment Company Raised $50m in Series C Funding, Released New Product Enhancements, and Tripled Employee Count.

CodeSignal, a technical assessment platform dedicated to helping companies make data-driven hiring decisions in tech recruiting, announced its extensive growth, including increasing the number of completed assessments year-to-date by more than 15X previous years, raising $50M in Series C funding, and tripling employee headcount. CodeSignal’s customers include Facebook, Roblox, Zoom, Robinhood, and more.

“We’re proud to work with some of the biggest companies in the world that are setting the new industry standard. The work we have done with our customers, our own assessment design engineers, I-O Psychologists, and psychometricians has allowed us to further expand our technical assessment software in a continued effort to change the hiring culture,” said Tigran Sloyan, CEO and co-founder of CodeSignal. “We’ve seen a lot of changes this year in what tech candidates and employers expect out of the hiring process. Our customers are driving the change the tech industry needs to reduce biases in hiring and bring the most deserving tech talent to the playing field.”

In an effort to help customers efficiently manage the talent acquisition process, CodeSignal integrated with SmartRecruiters, LinkedIn Talent Hub, and other applicant tracking systems (ATS), allowing customers to send CodeSignal assessments directly from their ATS. By combining the power of applicant tracking and CodeSignal’s assessment platform, customers can objectively assess candidates based on skill instead of relying on a candidate’s resume. Additionally, CodeSignal now integrates with GoodTime, allowing recruiters to schedule CodeSignal interviews from their GoodTime dashboard.

“This has been a year of tremendous growth for our customers and we’re encouraged to see some of the fastest-growing companies optimizing their hiring process for both equity, quality, and speed with CodeSignal. The ability to create a job-relevant ‘flight simulation’ for developers has been a game-changer for many customers,” said Peter Lu, VP of Customer Experience and Solutions Engineering. “Organizations are replacing manual resume reviews with real-world assessments to improve the candidate experience, save recruiter and engineering time, and reduce bias in the recruiting process. We’re thrilled to see significant growth in our customer base and to welcome new customers daily.”
