Data science is a rapidly growing field, and Data Scientists are one of the most in-demand in the world. As demand for Data Science candidates grows, identifying and hiring the best candidates is increasingly challenging as well as competitive.
HackerRank introduces the HackerRank Projects (previously known as Role-based Assessments) for Data Science to provide hiring teams the power to identify and assess top Data Science candidates through project-based and real-world challenges.
New Real-World Challenges to Assess Key Data Science Skills
We created a new set of real-world challenges that focus on assessing key skills strong Data Scientists need. These include:
- Data Wrangling
- Data Visualization
- Machine Learning

Pre-designed Ready-to-go Data Science Tests
To simplify Data Science hiring and to provide a complete yet comprehensive test experience, pre-designed screening tests for the Data Scientist roles are available in your account.
On selecting the role of "Data Scientist", the list of skills mapped to the role gets displayed.
Recruiters and Hiring Managers can create these tests through our test creation wizard and start inviting candidates right away.

Better Candidate Experience through Jupyter Support
The HackerRank Projects platform now comes with specially tailored features to create a better experience for Data Science candidates. By enabling support for Jupyter, the most widely used environment in the Data Science community, we’ve ensured candidate experience while solving a Data Science question is seamless!
Candidates can use an embedded Jupyter development environment for solving Data Science challenges within HackerRank. This Data Science-specific environment makes it easier for candidates to showcase their skills in a familiar setting. Since Jupyter is built specifically for Data Scientists, this option makes for a great candidate experience.

Candidate Reports for Data Science
Additionally, in order to improve candidate assessment, we have updated candidate reports for Data Science questions. The updated reports enable Hiring Managers to run the Jupyter Notebooks submitted by candidates with the click of a button., We also provide a preview of the Notebook for easy consumption and the ability to download the entire candidate solution at once.
