Seniority is more than code

Reduce your mis-leveled hires by 50%. ✂️

1 in 3 senior hires are mis-leveled. Being able to code is not enough. Engineering leaders use Woven to get senior-level signal in scenarios like debugging outages, architecting systems, and reviewing PRs.

Houston, we have a mis-leveling problem

Finding and hiring accurately leveled senior engineers is tough, and existing technical assessments and automated code quizzes aren’t cutting it. We’ve been talking with engineering leaders and you might be surprised at what we’ve heard.

A VP of Engineering at a Fortune 100 Media Company said, “We have an endemic mis-leveling challenge.”

Woven agrees, and here’s how we’re solving for it.

"In my prior role hiring hundreds of engineers in Silicon Valley, 1 out of 3 hires didn't perform. With Woven, only 1 out of 11 hasn't performed and that person had a noticeably lower Woven score."

Case Study #1: A Series B startup backed by Slack’s lead VC

On average, 1 in 3 Senior Engineer hires are mis-leveled. They don’t perform at a senior level.

Since using Woven, this Series B Startup made 11  hires. Only 1 was mis-leveled.

Based on their Woven score, can you guess which one?

seniority matters at every stage

Before Woven, Warmly mishired twice. “They were too junior. The way we screened was not good because we asked a lot of questions that were hypotheticals. The performance was bad.”

Since using Woven to assess their candidates, our engineering team is the best it’s ever been. We have a team of rockstares [whose] technical ability is without question
– Alan Zhao, CTO @ Warmly

Case Study #2: A Series D Fintech Startup

This customer made 12 hires using Woven’s work simulation in the last year.

Of those 12 hires, the only 2 underperforming came in below Woven’s calibration. 

Can you guess which ones underperformed based on their Woven scores?

The first tech assessment built for senior developers

Senior-level Scenarios

Senior engineers are more impactful due to their judgment in systems design and technical collaboration. They're not just faster at inverting a binary tree.

Senior-level Signal

We use scenarios like Code Review and Systems Design to give consistent signals on seniority.

Candidate Delight

We're different than an automated code quiz, but not easier. You keep a high bar and cut mis-leveled hires in half.
