2 min readJan 17, 2022

HackerPen is a platform to give and receive mock interviews. The purpose of this product is to help people and companies seize tech opportunities that shape their life and environment.

This week, we released a few new features and enhancements:

  • User technical background
  • Make video window resizable
  • Enhance “give interviews” scheduling tool

User technical background

We ask users to provide their industry experience, programming languages, and areas of expertise as part of their profile. This will help match users better for mock interviews (e.g. “I am looking for someone who specializes in backend with 10+ years of experience.”)

Additionally, interviewer’s and interviewee’s profiles will be sent as part of the e-introductions of a scheduled interview.

e-intro is the best intro ❤

Make video window resizable

Users now can minimize video chat window during an interview. This makes an interview session more flexible according to users’ preference. Shout out to Alex Krentz for this feature!

ah ha! minimize window :)

Enhance “give interviews” scheduling tool

We added a small enhance on the interviewer’s scheduling page. When an interviewee books a date from an interviewer, instead of starting from the current date, the schedule will start from their first available day. Shout out to Ian Douglas who suggested this feature!

first day = first available day
