Basic-fit Tests

Let’s not make you lose your time with a below-average technical interview experience

Our first step of testing is verbal English communication skills, cognitive abilities, and personality index. We provide a full map of candidate behavior before you make a hiring decision. Remote work is not easy, it is way more than just taking a sip from your mojito next to the pool with your laptop.

Every single candidate on our platform has to go through these simple steps so we can assure remote work success.  Once a candidate proves basic capabilities, we proceed with the real deal: Hands-on coding tests.

We have cognitive and personality index tests before we offer hands-on coding tests to achieve the scale
Every single remote software engineer on our platform gets hands-on tested

Hands-on Coding Tests

Less talk, more action

Regardless of technology choice – even including DevOps roles, we don’t believe in multiple-choice, we are big fans of hands-on coding tests. We also have automated fraud detection and plagiarism alerts. This is how we can successfully play the gate-keeper role and provide you the right profiles faster than anybody else.

We can go beyond coding skills and test the specific domain expertise based on your needs using our unique scenarios. Banking, Telecom, Billing, etc.

Screening Interviews

We got it, let us go in first

Although we have a couple of automated steps, we don’t leave things to chance, we do our own technical interviews and screening before we introduce talent to you.

We’re not only checking the basics here, we go deeper into remote work habits and environment, we do the coaching for fresh candidates who did not work remotely before.

We meet the talent before we introduce you for checking qualities and behavior
Final step of our talent acquisition process is to give you a unique interview experience. Best interviewees you'll ever get

Client Interviews

This is where you take over, faster and more accurate than ever before

As a natural result of all the steps above, we provide you with the top 0.1% of the talent faster than anybody else. Is it enough? Although we are only charging you after you make a successful hire, we’ll happily return your money in case of failure in the first 30 days or replace the talent. Whichever works best for you. Exceptionly makes it easy to schedule and perform hiring interviews using its cutting-edge hiring platform.

Is Exceptionly an outsourcing business?

No. We encourage our clients to do direct hires. We provide payroll consultancy and services in a 100% transparent way if our clients are new to remote hiring.

Is Exceptionly a database of candidates?

Not really, data is only a small part of our business. While we own over 2 million publicly available software engineer data evaluated, our power lies in hands-on testing and engineer-to-engineer technical interviews.

Is Exceptionly expensive?

Exceptionly is more cost-efficient than any other serious competitor who owns a decent technical testing funnel. If you compare Exceptionly with HR agencies who only do resume screening before endorsement, yes, it is expensive.

Who is the founder of Exceptionly?

Sinan Ata is the founder of Exceptionly, who previously built two global technical talent acquisition enginess and tested over 2.5 million software engineers in his career.
