Call for problem setting on HackerEarth

Revision en1, by Arpa, 2019-07-25 08:41:58

Hi everyone.

I want to describe the process to become a problem setter on HackerEarth. I'm eager to see new problem setters want to prepare contests. It's a great experience for every coder to hold a contest at least once. First time when I prepared a contest (I was fifteen that time, a high schooler student!) it was so sweet for me that I continued preparing problems on Codeforces, CodeChef, HackerEarth, Quera, Iran Olympiad of Informatics Finals and several more. Then I worked for 1.5 years in Quera as the contest coordinator, which was great. I'm continuing my job — Contest Coordinating — on HackerEarth from January.

We have three algorithmic contest every month, here is the table:

Contest Number of problems Approximate Difficulty Length Comments
Easy 6 Like Codeforces Div. 2 3 Hours
HourStorm 3 Easy to Medium-Hard 1 Hour
Circuits 8 One approximate problem and 7 algorithmic, from Very-Easy to Hard 9 Days More educational, less competitive, we could use classical problems

As you can see, we need a lot of problems every month. To propose a problem, follow this instruction:

  • Ask me to add you to the Ninja Setters platform, where you can write your proposal.
  • I'll check your problem soon. If approved, you should prepare test cases, solution.
  • We'll have you in a contest!

Our proposal queue is almost empty, so if you propose a problem today, with a high probability, your problem will be used in August contests. Here is the compensation table:
