Hey Everybody,

Hackerrank is hiring for the role of Technical Product Manager. This position is full-time and opens remotely within India. Your role as a Technical Product Manager would be to manage content (formally, problems prepared on the Hackerrank platform) across all domains. You will have the opportunity to work on revolutionizing hiring for tech giants.

The primary goal of the job would be to create and manage a team that could generate a large number of high-quality coding questions that we call the “Content Studio”. We are looking for candidates with a good coding profile.

This might be a good opportunity for competitive programmers who want to continue CP and Product Management even during work.

Hello Everyone,

We are looking for problem setters on Hackerrank. The problems will be used for interviews and some private contests. You will have a lot to learn in the process. Once you do good with problem setting, we will involve you in other tasks as well like Testing, Statement Review, Editorials, etc.

Since the problems are not for public contests, we follow slightly different guidelines for preparing the problems and hence training new people takes time. Therefore, we will be only taking a handful of new setters.

The compensation will be as follows:

  • Easy — 60$
  • Medium — 80$
  • Hard — 80$

You can assume the following correspondence for the difficulty of the problems in terms of codeforces rating:

  • Easy — 1000-1300
  • Medium — 1400-1700
  • Hard — 1800-2000

Note: We don't need very ad-hoc problems since these problems will not be used to test competitive skills. Also, we discourage problems that are math-based or are based on heavy implementation data structures like Segment Tree, Fenwick Tree, etc. Instead, you can give a problem which is a bit standard but unique. Currently, we have a large requirement for "Hard" problems.

If you are interested in this, please fill the form: https://forms.gle/9kb67EwcgS2JEs3n7.

We will contact you in case you meet our requirements.

Almost whenever I am practising, codeforces almost always goes on a long queue, it is so annoying seeing 100's of submissions on queue.

Could anyone give a link, to repository which has best snippets in terms of efficiency and are easy to read. Snippets which are more general are appreciable (like multipurpose segtree).

Thanks!
