SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Dice®, the leading career hub for technology and engineering professionals and a service of DHI Group, Inc. (NYSE: DHX), today announced a partnership with HackerEarth, the world's largest platform for skills assessments and hackathons, to become the exclusive U.S. reseller for customized talent assessment solutions. The partnership, which brings HackerEarth services to Dice customers and candidates, accelerates the technical hiring process, improving candidate quality for employers, and providing a way for candidates to gain a competitive edge during their career search journey.
The recruitment environment in the U.S. for employers with technology needs remains a challenge as demand and turnover soar at above average levels. Recruiters and hiring managers know that finding the right highly-skilled tech talent is a lengthy and arduous process. In November 2016, it took 27.4 working days to fill a position, according to the DHI-DFH Measure of National Mean Vacancy Duration, a proprietary report from DHI Group, Inc.; that lengthy amount of time suggests that, in a tight labor market, employers are competing hard to find and hire the right candidates.
Dice's partnership with HackerEarth works to resolve many of the unknowns involved with hiring tech talent. Dice customers can screen and qualify candidates across 32 different programming languages. For employers with less technical acumen, HackerEarth's pre-built library of 19,000 technical and non-technical questions simplifies the process of creating tests, generating efficiency for hiring managers and adding confidence in the recruiting process.
Additionally, Dice will resell 'hackathon' services, enabling employers with a simple solution to host their own in-person or virtual hackathons. Through HackerEarth's powerful management platform, employers can run hackathons to achieve a variety of outcomes including sparking innovation within a company, building viable products, expanding employment branding to new tech professionals and qualifying top tech talent for potential future hire.
"We are excited by this partnership and the value it will bring to Dice customers. We are thrilled to provide employers user-friendly skill assessments to enhance the screening process and help them hire the ideal candidate," said Bob Melk, President of Dice. "Dice's partnership with HackerEarth offers an added layer of assurance, empowering employers who leverage the services to feel confident they are making a more informed hiring decision. Additionally, the partnership strengthens Dice offerings for tech professionals providing them with an easy way to demonstrate their proficiency and move through the hiring process faster."
"Technical recruiting is a cumbersome process and HackerEarth has been working hard towards solving that problem. We believe that Dice's ability to bring our services to the U.S. market and to reach the technology industry's most influential employers and professionals is simply unmatched," said Sachin Gupta, CEO of HackerEarth. "We're confident that this partnership will speed up employers' hiring processes, and provide candidates with the tools and services needed to prove their technical aptitude."

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

While many government agencies have embraced the idea of employing cloud computing as a tool for increasing the efficiency and flexibility of IT, many still struggle with large scale adoption. The challenge is mainly attributed to the federated structure of these agencies as well as the immaturity of brokerage and governance tools and models. Initiatives like FedRAMP are a great first step toward solving many of these challenges but there are a lot of unknowns that are yet to be tackled. In hi...

The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market? In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise. What are the key differences between wh...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Igor Drobiazko, co-founder of elastic.io, drew upon his own experience with operating a Docker container-based infrastructure on a large scale and present a lightweight solution for resource isolation using microservices. He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines.

In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of Dev...
