SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CodeFights announced today that it has raised $10 million in Series A funding, led by e.ventures. This sizeable round is a testament to CodeFights' impressive growth and will fuel the company's mission to transform the way the tech industry recruits by making it more meritocratic. CodeFights provides a free gamified educational tool that helps software engineers practice and improve their skills. CodeFights also works with top tier tech companies—including Uber, Dropbox, Asana and Quora—to help them find in-demand engineering talent through skill-based recruiting. CodeFights' user base has grown by 10X since the company raised its seed round in April 2015 and revenue has doubled every month over the past four months. "Rarely do we find markets that are lacking as much transparency and are as fragmented as that of technical recruiting," said Tom Gieselmann from e.ventures, who joined CodeFights' board. "With CodeFights, we see a future in which people are provided opportunity based on their talents, rather than their educational or work backgrounds. As a global venture capital firm, CodeFights' mission helps support our goal of assisting the development of international internet-enabled businesses." CodeFights attracts hundreds of thousands of engineers from all around the world who are eager to challenge themselves, learn new skills and understand how they compare against the rest of the industry. As engineers interact with coding challenges on CodeFights, the platform objectively assesses their programming skills. This not only helps the players improve, but also enables those who are interested to be matched with better job opportunities. In the past 6 months, CodeFights has partnered with hundreds of companies to help them move from pedigree to skill-based recruiting. CodeFights follows a contingency recruiting model where companies use the platform for free until they make their first hire. Once they do, they pay CodeFights a referral fee equivalent to 15 percent of the hired candidate's first year salary.
