Scheduled Maintenance on Oct 21, 2015

HackerRank for Work will be down for scheduled maintenance on Oct 21 from 01:30 AM – 04.30 AM PDT. We’ll be performing some system enhancements that’ll make your user experience even better (and faster) than it already is. During this time no one will be able to access the HackerRank platform.

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. Further we will ensure that candidates are allowed to start their Test only if they can complete it before the start of the maintenance window. For e.g. if candidate Tom tries to start the “HackerRank Java Test” that is of 90 minutes duration after midnight on that day, he will be prevented from doing so as the scheduled end of the test will overlap with the maintenance window.

How does this impact CodePair Sessions

New CodePair sessions cannot start during the maintenance window, and upto 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 wind up their interview. Please be assured that interview data recorded before the maintenance window starts will be safe.
