Artificial Intelligence driven Marketing Communications
Codility is an automated tool for assessment of programming skills.
Codility is designed for software development companies, as well as corporations with high IT demand (telco, finance). It enables recruiters without specialized IT knowledge, all over the world, to quickly verify programming skills of candidates, even in massive quantities, in an automated manner. It’s aim is to verify how well the candidate will perform in a day to day job.
Codility tests actual programming skills, by requesting the candidate to write a snippet of source code (a function) and then testing its correctness and performance characteristics. It simulates natural programming environment by allowing the candidate to compile and run the code in the browser. The solution is subsequently evaluated in an automated manner. In order to achieve similar goals, the company would have to use literally hours of precious time of an experienced (and expensive) Senior Programmer to assess the solutions.
Codility was selected as a winner of [Seedcamp](http://www.crunchbase.com/company/seedcamp) 2009, [Smarta 100](http://www.smarta.com/smarta100/2010-winners/codility) and TC European Startup Award 2010.
