This will help engineers who are looking for a code collaboration tool during their interview process, be it onsite or over the phone. Interviews created using this extension are available in your HackerRank for Work dashboard to go through reports and notes whenever you want to access them.

Scheduled Maintenance on May 29th, 2017 at 10am PT

HackerRank will not be available due to scheduled maintenance from 10 am to 3 pm PST on 29th May 2017 (See all timezones here). We will take this time to perform updates to our database.

During this time you will not be able to access the entire HackerRank platform including HackerRank for Work, HackerRank Community and HackerRank Jobs.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does this impact test candidates?

The tests interface will not be available during the maintenance window. Candidates will see a notification to come back at a later time if they try to launch a test. We will also ensure that candidates are allowed to start their Test only if they can complete it before the start of the maintenance window.

How does this impact CodePair sessions?

New CodePair sessions cannot start during the maintenance window, and up to 90 minutes prior to the start of the window. For sessions that are live as we approach the window, we will show warnings to the participants so they can complete their interview. Interview data recorded before the maintenance window starts will be safe.

How does this impact my reports?

You will not be able to view reports or dashboards during the downtime.

What happens to invites expiring on 29th May?

For candidate test invites which expire on 29th May, we can increase the expiry date by a day in case you would want to do that. You can send out the consent at
