What is Turing's vetting process?

by Turing Support

Before joining Turing.com, developers have to go through the Turing vetting process. Turing uses a combination of automated tests and an AI Matching Engine to match qualified engineers with remote jobs at leading U.S. companies. This unique skill based vetting process has been scientifically crafted to improve upon Silicon Valley vetting standards and find the top 1% software engineers in the world.

Turing’s AI Matching Engine evaluates the results of the MCQ tests and coding challenges to analyze developers’ skills, expertise and work experience. After that, it identifies the best jobs for each candidate based on their talent, availability, and location.

Turing’s vetting process consists of four steps:

Upload resume and setup profile Work experience survey (MCQ test) Coding challenge (Real-time coding test) Tech stack tests (MCQ test) Once you complete these tests, the AI Matching Engine will help you finalize your profile, and then it will start presenting your profile to leading U.S. companies for the most suitable remote developer jobs.

Will Turing allow me to retake a test if I fail? Yes, Turing allows remote developers to retake the test if they fail to clear it. Developers can retake a test 3 months after their unsuccessful attempt. In this 3 month period, developers can practice the relevant skills and sharpen up their technical knowledge. While retaking the test, developers are only required to repeat the last step where they failed.

Please reach out to support@turing.com if the test doesn't reset automatically.
