CodeFights Renamed CodeSignal

Wednesday Jul 11th 2018 by Developer.com Staff

The website now creates developer scores that are similar to credit scores.

The website formerly known as CodeFights has renamed itself CodeSignal. The company said, “Our goal is to ensure that we can provide a completely objective way of signaling your level of skill to those that matter.”

The firm is also launching a new developer scoring service that assesses developers' technical competence. “Before the credit score became an industry standard, the lending market was at the discretion of a loan officer who might make a decision based on how you were dressed or talked, their own biases, or on whether or not they were having a good day,” said Tigran Sloyan, CEO of CodeSignal. “A credit score made the lending process a lot more objective, and scalable using data. This is what CodeSignal is doing for technical recruiting – making the hiring process less subjective and enabling companies to hire technical talent based on data, and not gut intuition or unconscious biases.”
