Business in Focus: Codility

A closer look at companies executing leadership excellence

Imagine that you are a recruiter who’s been asked to fill a back-end developer position. You work with the hiring manager to post a job description to match the skills and experience needed, and 33 applicants’ resumes are a match. Now what? How do you pare down the candidates to help the hiring manager choose from among the top handful of candidates? In a word – Codility.

Codility was founded by an engineer who wanted to spend more time coding and solving problems than interviewing dozens of candidates. Thirteen years, 200+ employees, and $22M in VC funding later, that initial concept evolved into an entirely new way of approaching tech recruiting. That gives over 30,000 talented people each month opportunities – wherever they’re based and whatever their background.

The concept of access and equity of the candidate experience is something that Codility has embedded into its own DNA. Today, from Warsaw to San Francisco, the company’s team members speak 18 languages across 30 countries.

Codility is a remote-first and people-first company with a compensation plan that includes equitable healthcare plans that work for diverse team members, a monthly wellness budget to spend on physical, mental, and financial well-being, Employee Resource Groups to create spaces where employees can bring their whole selves to the table, and loads of PTO time to rest and recharge. Team members can also take advantage of a variety of learning and development opportunities and get together at an annual off-site to strengthen connections.

The ROI on employee engagement is evidenced by Codility’s top-performance talent management software rating on G2, its overall rating of 4.8 out of 5 on Glassdoor, and Best CEO award in 2021 on Comparably.

Kudos to Codility for driving a shift in how world-class engineering teams are formed, managed, and trained. To learn more about Codility’s culture, click here.
