Haystack, the modern intranet company rethinking the employee experience, today announced the availability of its new mobile application on Android, iOS, and the mobile web. The mobile app was created to simplify the sharing of company knowledge no matter where staff are located, connecting all employees within an organization to the people, information, and resources they need to thrive.
The Haystack mobile app was built from the ground up to provide a consumer-grade experience for all employees within an organization. The app combines lightning-fast search, intuitive controls, playful experiences, and tasteful social features that foster authentic employee connections and engagement, even across distances. Additionally, Haystack offers no-code customization so businesses can personalize the app logo and interface to reflect their own branding making the mobile experience uniquely theirs.
Filtered, a skills-based hiring platform, today expanded its job simulations to include cloud engineering challenges—a first for the industry. This latest offering joins Filtered’s established coding simulations library as the best way to assess candidates’ skills with real-world challenges conducted in an environment that simulates a company’s tech stack. With cloud skills simulations, candidates can show off their abilities in areas like DevOps and cloud engineering with technical challenges that incorporate Google Cloud, AWS, Azure, and various other software-as-a-service platforms.
The new cloud skills simulations are powered by proprietary remote desktop technology and, as with all Filtered assessments, include automatic grading and fraud detection. Filtered’s cloud skills simulations are the only industry offering that enables candidates to remotely complete challenges in a browser-connected, multi-app environment.
This functionality is the latest addition to Filtered’s complete, customizable technical hiring platform. Filtered’s initial screening process combines take-home technical assessments, including job simulations, and recorded candidate responses to prompts. All technical assessments can be automatically graded, and fraud detection is applied throughout the process. As a result, Filtered allows candidates to demonstrate their technical acumen, communication skills, and conceptual thinking, while hiring managers can review results and advance qualified candidates at any time. For the live interviewing round, Filtered offers functionality for in-meeting collaborative exercises, including ones that build on the take-home assessments, providing for a richer interview experience.
