Why Geektastic is a better alternative to Test Gorilla
Geektastic has taken a very different approach to assessing a developer’s skills to Test Gorilla.
Platforms like Test Gorilla use machine based tests to filter out the poor candidates. If you are looking to identify your best candidates then a better alternative to Test Gorilla is to use Geektastic.
Geektastic uses expert developers (who work at companies including Meta and Twitter for their day jobs and carry out code reviews on your candidates in their evenings) to thoroughly assess a developer’s skills and identify the top 10% from a single take-home, peer reviewed code challenge.
How Geektastic is a better alternative to Test Gorilla.
|Candidates work on real world, problem solving take-home challenges which look at their overall skills||Candidates complete tests that are designed to only highlight the weaker candidates|
|Candidates work on their solution in their own IDE||Candidates code in an online IDE that they are not familiar with|
|Geektastic’s experts provide line by line code analysis||Computer tests give limited insight into a candidate’s real technical skills|
|Geektatsic’s review team can fix silly errors made by the candidate and run the code||Good developers are failed for silly syntax errors where they got 99% of the solution correct|
|Developers can write their own feedback on the review||Candidates simply get a pass or fail result|
|Geektastic is 100% focussed on software engineering skills||Test Gorilla cover a broad spectrum of skills including personality and leadership|

Looking for an alternative to Test Gorilla? Use Geektastic
While there are some great alternatives to Test Gorilla, we can provide you with something even better.
Here at Geektastic, we want to help you identify your best software engineering candidates.
Whether you are using Test Gorilla, or one of its many alternatives, you usually have to carry out further technical interviews with the candidate.
At Geektatsic we shorten the hiring process by reducing the number of stages you have to put candidates through.
We’ll work with you to streamline the process of measuring a candidate’s coding ability.
Our team of expert developers will evaluate a candidate’s skill set – assessing code quality, solution design, problem solving skills and automated test coverage.
And the best bit - our reviews are completed in less than 24hrs, meaning both the hiring team and the candidate get results the next day.
We believe we are a great alternative to Test Gorilla - but if that’s still not enough to convince you, here’s a quick list of reasons why Geektastic could be the right platform for you.
For hiring teams:
Use one of our take home challenges, bring your own one across or even have us create your own bespoke challenge tailored to your company (we find these work the best!).
Remove unconscious bias with Geektastic: Use Geektastic to create a diverse team. All reviews are carried out completely anonymously removing the problem where team members might start to form an opinion before they even start the code review or technical interview.
Streamline your candidate assessments: Invite your candidates to take online coding challenges with Geektastic and you’ll have complete visibility of a candidate’s progress. It’s so simple: candidates complete a coding challenge, submit it for review, and you hire the best fit for your company.
Guaranteed detailed technical evaluations: At Geektastic, we don’t rely on machines to review a candidate’s code challenge submission.
When it comes to assessing a developer’s skills we believe there is nothing more effective than the human eye.
Our team of reviewers have been thoroughly evaluated and screened: they work at places like Amazon, Google & Meta for their day jobs.
We provide an enhanced candidate experience: We use a 360-degree code review tool so candidates can respond to the reviewer’s comments
Below are some screen shots from the platform, these demonstrate our philosophy of putting the developer first in the hiring process.
Line by Line code review
Our expert review team will go through the code line by line and provide detailed feedback, not only pointing our where things went wrong, but where they were right. In some instances the team will drop in alternatives to improve the code to try and make this as much a learning experience as an exam (who likes exams?!)
There’s nothing worse than having no right of reply.
Below is an example of Dynamic Feedback interaction between the candidate and the reviewer.
