The Wild Noodle mission

Wild Noodle is a language-independent programming screening tool that improves hiring experiences for HR managers and recruiters. The tool helps them find the best candidates for their open positions without having to rely on traditional, subjective methods of screening.

Wild Noodle's unique approach uses artificial intelligence to provide insights into a candidate's programming abilities that go beyond their resume and interview performance. It also allows companies to easily collect data from every candidate before they interview them, improving their hiring process over time.

Wild Noodle identifies not only programming skills but also abilities like problem-solving, critical thinking, and collaboration skills.
