Design Brief: Candidate Metrics

A brief summary of the business / site goals.

Candidate Metrics helps recruiters test and evaluate software engineering candidates. Candidates complete programming challenges and we compile and score their code.

The key users.

Recruiters: Recruiters will use Candidate Metrics to identify great candidates to push forward through the hiring process

Candidates: Candidates will use the site to complete work sample assessments. The appearance of the Candidate Metrics website should assure the engineer that his effort will be worth the reward.

Scenarios in which your app or site will be used.

Candidate Metrics will work with recruiters to publish appropriate work sample assessments on the site.

Candidates will visit the site to take the assessments - normally at the behest of the recruiter, but potentially candidates might find the assessments on their own.

Recruiters will use the site and the site-generated emails to evaluate performance on the assessments.

Design style principles to follow.

  • professional
  • hip
  • confident
  • reliable
