We were recommended HackerTrail when we needed to find a front-end junior developer at very short notice.

The quality of the recommended candidates was generally very high. We ended up filling the position and hiring one of the other candidates into a different role. The team were a great help in defining the candidates we were looking for.

At first I was very skeptical of the speed interviewing process, but within a couple of hours we had filled our pipeline with good quality candidates for Data Analysts and Data Engineers and offers made within a couple of weeks. Tushar and his team did a perfect choreograph of the event and it was seamless. Despite my initial apprehensions, I will certainly go over the process again with Hackerhunt to fill in any vacancies I may have in the future

Instead of going out to the campuses, bringing them into our organization, having them understand what we are about in terms of our organization structure, culture, and meeting up with our management team. These are the kinds of experiences you can’t replicate just going out to the respective campuses.

It never is about the size or how strong a track record the Recruitment Agency or executive search company is but how much understanding and effort put into our business that matters and I am glad to have HackerTrail as part of our key panel of recruiters. Not only have they managed to recommend top Tech talents, they were able to help build our tech team in India and managed to help place over 80% of tech talents for our new tech hub in India on top of Singapore’s placements. Thank you HackerTrail.

We found and hired a full stack engineer within two weeks of engaging with HackerTrail. The product was quick to setup, easy to monitor and provided us with many interesting candidates.

We turned to HackerTrail after disappointing results from job boards which brought us a lot of irrelevant profiles, with low volume and at a high price. HackerTrail is definitely the best way to go.

It was a pleasure working with HackerTrail. They are “breaking the mould” in the recruitment arena and are doing a fantastic job at it. They helped us source a candidate from outside Singapore for a difficult to fill role which had been open for six months!

Jay Chan

UOB was seeking to build our own technology talent through a multi-track graduate recruitment programme. The target group was fresh graduates from STEM and across different faculties. We partnered HackerTrail, who planned the campaign with us from start to end including tech assessments and tournaments. The HackerTrail team was phenomenal – and together, we achieved better than desired outcome for the recruitment campaign.

Cybersecurity Manager, PCS Security

As a service provider to the government agencies, our requirements for candidates are hard to fill. Many recruitment agencies failed and gave up. HackerTrail was recommended and we were very pleased with their results of successfully filling multiple roles in the first few weeks. They have started to work with us in the different tech departments now and have proven themselves to be a strong and trusted partner in our hiring expansion.

HackerTrail proved to be very successful for our graduate hiring in Singapore. Given the quality of candidates we received, we ended up hiring 15 people instead of 10. Our candidates enjoyed the experience of cracking challenges, and my team found the platform simple and intuitive to navigate.

We will be engaging HackerTrail for our future roles in the region. I wanted to send this formal appreciation to you and the whole team. Well done, team HackerTrail!

Hackertrail works well with JIM, our AI Recruiter. The coding assessment coupled with other online assessments, ie cognitive and psychometric, is a scientific way of assessing the applicants. The enhanced features on HT, ie dashboard, video recording helped loads in shortlisting of the applicants during the recruitment peak. The technical support team at HT provided excellent support whenever the recruiter or the applicants encountered issues with coding assessment, ie candidates report, webcam denied etc.

What I love about HackerTrail is they are open to feedback and willing to adapt to build their solutions enabling win-win outcomes. We use HackerTrail for hiring data scientists in multiple geographies and the platform’s flexibility allowed us to have greater self-service in how we administer our assessments to our candidates. We have used HackerTrail successfully for many years to recruit high caliber talent and save time ✌️.

I’m glad that I decided to work with HackerTrail, they give you a glimpse of how flawlessly hiring events can be conducted. We used them first time that too on a niche requirement. There was a lot of ambiguity but Tushar and his team instilled the confidence that they will deliver. They ensured that we had a 93% turnout from the shortlisted candidates, HackerTrail’s team was on their toes the whole evening to ensure that the logistics are managed well and we ended up hiring 10 resources from one event night. It was such a refreshing experience to work with them and they are our default partners for future events
