InnoHiring: The project by a research fellow of Innopolis University will help in recruitment and professional evaluation of software developers on the Internet

According to an independent evaluation, by 2017 the global market of software engineers will expand up to 18 million people. 20% of them change their job every year. It means that the job marketplace (recruiting companies, HR departments of IT companies, startups) faces a real problem related to recruitment and evaluation of candidates' professional skills. Meanwhile, currently available solutions fail to describe the full picture. Based on statistics, it usually takes over ten interviews for a company to hire an expert. Besides, preparation for employment tests can be made in advance. Automated evaluation services will help to aggregate personal information from social networks and professional communities. However, sometimes such services are not objective.

"Our project is based on the analysis of a developer’s source code obtained from open-source projects for the assessment of his professional skills. In other words, we are planning to evaluate candidates prior to personal interviews, thus helping companies to reduce the number of meetings in 5 times and save money on recruitment," - emphasized Marat Mingazov, project manager.

The invention of  Innopolis University researchers is to enable automated search, evaluation and ranking of software developers on the Internet, which will enable a direct analysis of the candidate's source code in order to determine his or her professional skills. The main advantage of InnoHiring consists in a target search of developers who already apply technologies used in IT companies.

The InnoHiring project is developed by the Laboratory Industrial Production of Software, in particular, by Giancarlo Succi, Vladimir Ivanov, Alexey Reznik, and Stanislav Litvinov.
