CodinGame is an innovative pre-employment technical testing solution. Recruiters use CodinGame assessments to evaluate developers' technical skills as part of their screening process. CodinGame's solution helps recruiters quickly, efficiently and fairly shortlist developers based on their coding skills.

Greenhouse Recruiting's integration with CodinGame allows you to seamlessly add CodinGame's assessment to a job's interview plan. In this article, we will cover how to:
