Roles on HackerRank
Roles are job positions in any company for which candidates are hired. At HackerRank, a ‘Role’ is a collection of skills that match the skills required for a particular job.
HackerRank has defined a set of skills and key competencies based on Industry standards vetted by the HackerRank Skills Advisory Council. We are creating high-quality questions aligned to Skills, which can help assess candidates to ensure accurate insights on their competency levels.
Default roles are already present in HackerRank, comprising a set of skills. These skills are chosen based on market research and data from existing users and vetted by subject matter experts such as the advisory council, among other SMEs. A custom role can be created if a role is unavailable or differs from the default one.
You can create roles for your company inside the HackerRannk account. Currently, company admins can create these roles. All users within the Company can use the roles.
On the roles management page, click on the Create Role button.
On the following popup window, you will be asked to give a name to your role and add the related skills. Once you are done with it, click on Publish Role.
Once published, roles can not be edited. You can archive the role and create a new one with the same name if you want to edit a role.
You can find the published role in the active tab on the Roles page. You can quickly access the search bar on the left pane to search for your desired role.
