This month, we focused on improving your experience while using our product. Here are some things that went live:
Product enhancements that improve the user experience
We have optimized the performance of the application to ensure that the page loads faster—in less than 200 milliseconds to be precise. This improvement has been made with respect to the time that it takes to load the following:
- Code player
- Question reports page
- Global search results
We have also made compilation logs visible to all candidates. This makes it easier for candidates to identify errors in their code. This is optional and can be activated based on your preferences.
Walkthrough for Java Project questions
We have created a walkthrough for Java Project questions. This will help candidates get familiar with the interface before they start the test. The walkthrough can be accessed by clicking the icon. The walkthrough explains the different components in a Java Project question such as the problem statement, maximum marks, project name, and the number of files.
Track your candidates better
You can now download the list of candidates that you have invited for a test in an Excel sheet. In the Invited section under Candidates, click Download Invites.

Error-specific alerts in the test environment
We have hit an all-time high uptime of 99.98% on the platform
It’s our constant endeavor to maintain the maximum uptime at all times and we are thrilled to share that we had an all-time high uptime of 99.98% in the last quarter.
New questions in the HackerEarth Questions library
Several new questions have been added to the HackerEarth Recruit question library. We’ve now added new questions to our library. Recruit’s test library now hosts a set of new questions. We have added new MCQs, Programming, Machine Learning, and Java Project questions.
Dark theme in the code editor
We have changed the color theme of the code editor. The code editor now has the dark theme by default, which has improved the readability of code.
We have a few exciting new releases coming up and we wanted to give you a sneak peek:
- Our code editor will soon be supporting Shell Script (BASH) as one of the programming languages.
- SuccessFactors, an Applicant Tracking System (ATS), will soon be added to our list of integrations. So, if you are currently using SuccessFactors, stay tuned for more.
- There is also a feature to send auto-reminders to candidates in the works. This is aimed at increasing the percentage of candidates who take up tests and also saving the time that is required to send reminder emails.
