The engineering culture and infrastructure at HackerRank is built for speed. We build and deploy changes to our production infrastructure many times a day (if required). That is one of the joys of being a SaaS provider, and we pride ourselves on our agility and responsiveness. There is a downside to this agility as well. At times customers are surprised by some change and find it a bit annoying when there is no accompanying note explaining the change or the rationale.
Today we are thrilled to launch a new in-product notification system to address this concern. Just look for the megaphone icon on the top-right of the title bar after you login to your HackerRank for Work account. If there are any updates on this blog since your last visit to your account, they will appear as a neat list which you can then click to read all the detail. Using this medium we plan to keep you update on new features, enhancements, and key bug fixes, notifications of scheduled downtimes and all such matters related to our service.
We hope you like this, and we’d love to hear what you think of it. Drop us a note in the comments below, or write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
