ReliScore is a platform for job-seekers to showcase their skills by solving problems, completing programming challenges and where required, submitting the software code. The challenges span multiple skill levels and domains. This allows companies to find the right candidates by posing challenges in their areas of interest along with corresponding job postings.
ReliScore is currently available in beta. If you are a candidate, please try and solve the various challenges and check out the job-postings. If you are a student and would like to become a ReliScore Campus Ambassador for your college, please contact us. If you're are a company interested in learning more about how ReliScore can help you find top talent, please contact us.
At the core of ReliScore are the activities that users are expected to complete. Completing any problem within an activity gives a user ReliScore points. All activities are tagged with various topics / domains / areas (like Networking, or Java, or Kernel Programming), and we keep track of the number of points accumulated by the user in each area. Thus, as users complete more activities on ReliScore, looking at the points accumulated by a user in each area, it becomes clear what areas the user is interested in and has expertise in.
We are in constant touch with industry, and the activities put up here represent skills that industry is desperately looking for, but find lacking in a majority of the candidates who apply for jobs. In fact, all the jobs listed by companies on ReliScore have one or more ReliScore activity listed as a pre-requisite. This means that you cannot apply for a job unless you have completed those activities. And if you have completed those activities, in most cases, you get a direct second round interview at the company.
Also, one of ReliScore's guiding principles is that we don't like to put up tricky problems that require a very clever answer. We like to put up problems that you are likely to encounter on a regular basis if you are doing a good job in the industry. This activities are usually not easy (which should be obvious, because you're being promised a second round interview with a company on completing them), but they do not require a Mensa-level IQ to solve. Good understanding of concepts, ability to use search engines for self-education, and persistence are the main qualities that we're more interested in. Sadly, these qualities are missing in most of your colleagues. But, you are different, right?
So, get started. Jobs and points and rewards are awaiting you. But don't do this for the rewards. Do it because it is the
The ReliScore backend is designed to give companies many different ways in which to look for candidates with specific skills. If you have a "company login" into ReliScore, you can browse candidates by their ReliScore, by specific areas of expertise (e.g. algorithms, or web development using PHP, or kernel programming), or by looking for candidates who have completed specific activities. For the candidates you're interested in, you can see all their activity, including the programs they have written, so it is very easy to get an idea of the abilities of the candidate.
If you have an existing batch of candidates (e.g. a bunch of resumes sent across by a recruiter), you can use ReliScore to filter the candidates. You can send them to a company specific URL (which can optionally be hidden from the general public), and have them complete one or more ReliScore activities. Then it is easy to select which candidates should be called for in-person interview
However, at this point, we are only working with selected companies. Specifically, we are looking for companies who understand and share our vision, who are working on interesting products, or high quality services, and who are willing to spend a little time with us to help shape the ReliScore platform as it evolves.
If you're a company that fits this description, please get in touch with us.
If you have expertise in any specific technology area, we would like to invite you to create and manage a ReliScore Track, which is basically a long-term activity that ReliScore users can complete to attain expertise in that area. The activity will consist of a series of increasing complex problems and/or programming assignments, constructed in such a way that if any user completes this activity can be said to have attained a pretty understanding of this area.
Your responsibilities would be:
