HackerRank's CodePair is a live and interactive coding environment for hiring companies to conduct technical interviews. Typically, in a company’s hiring process, Candidates who clear their initial level of assessments are subsequently invited to participate in a coding interview on HackerRank's CodePair platform. One of the several advantages of HackerRank's CodePair is that Candidates can attend these interviews remotely. It is also a great platform for Candidates to showcase their problem-solving and programming knowledge skills to their interviewers.
For Candidates who have an upcoming CodePair interview, this article describes:
