The Roles Management module in HackerRank for Work platform is designed to give more control to recruiters in terms of creating tests based on specific roles that are mapped to specific skills thus helping the hiring process to become more streamlined.
What are Roles?
Generally speaking, roles are functions or positions within an organization for which candidates are hired.
On HackerRank for Work, a ‘Role’ is a combination of different skills that closely match the skillset of the ideal candidate for the particular position.
For each skill, HackerRank has come up with a set of skill definitions keeping the market standards in mind. We are also, continuously, creating high-quality questions that can help companies assess candidates on these skills and get accurate insights about the candidates’ competencies.
