Vivek Ravisankar
HackerRank, CEO & Founder

Vivek Ravisankar is the CEO and Co-Founder of HackerRank, the platform used by over 7 million developers to hone their skills, and is employed by 2,000+ companies like Amazon, Lyft, LinkedIn and Dropbox to recruit top tech talent. After graduating from NIT in India, Ravisankar worked as a software engineer at Amazon, where he spent hundreds of hours interviewing other developers. To help bring efficiency, standardization and inclusivity to the technical hiring process, he co-founded HackerRank, the first Indian startup to graduate from Y-Combinator.


For companies hiring software developers today, remote interviews are the new normal in technical interviewing due to COVID-19. Companies across the world are moving from in-person onsites to remote interviewing to preserve the health and safety of their teams, and their candidates – but for many, this is their first foray into remote hiring and there’s a big learning curve ahead. Vivek Ravisankar, CEO of HackerRank, has helped 2,000+ companies like Atlassian, Peloton and PayPal conduct more than 1.2 million remote interviews and can share best practices to make the process easier.
