Uber's Clever Way of Recruiting Tech Talent

Uber's clever way of recruiting tech talent begins with a ride and a set of in-app challenges the organization calls "Code on the Road."

Here's how it functions: Passengers in select cities are offered the selection to take on 3 coding challenges, with every single a single obtaining a one particular-minute time limit. If they score properly, they will be offered the possibility to connect with Uber recruiters by way of the app and will be emailed a link to a job application.

The game, which seems to have been very first spotted by Company Insider, has been spotted in Austin, Boston, Denver and Portland, Oregon.

"We are constantly seeking for new strategies to reach potential candidates that want to join our group and support us solve fascinating issues," an Uber representative told ABC News in a statement. "If you're in a location exactly where a lot of people today perform in tech, you may perhaps see our 'Code on the Road' challenge within the rider app. The alternative to play gives interested riders the chance to show us their expertise in a exciting and different way -- regardless of whether they code on the side or are pursuing a career as a developer."

Uber also has one more challenge on Codefights, where individuals can place their capabilities to the test against software the firm calls its Uberbot.

"When you codefight against the UberBot, you will resolve some of the core challenges we face in growing our company, such as acquiring the optimal route for a automobile, or how to best match riders for uberPOOL," a post on Uber's site explains.

Bob Cowherd, Uber's head of growth and recruiting, told the San Francisco Chronicle in January the challenge gives Uber a unique way into the recruiting course of action.

“We believed it would be a way to flip recruiting on its head," Cowherd stated. “This moves the raw-talent test piece up to the quite first step in the procedure.”
