Codility's Mission

At Codility, we believe there is a better way to do tech recruitment. We’re excited to tackle some of the biggest challenges businesses face—effectively attracting, screening, interviewing, and engaging top developers. Our mission is to help tech hiring teams identify the most promising candidates in their recruitment workflow by giving them deeply accurate insights into coders’ real-life skills, while also creating a great candidate experience. We're passionate about connecting great companies with the best programmers.

Our Founding

Codility came into existence in 2005 when Greg Jakacki was looking for a quicker, better way to recruit software engineers for the IT startup he worked for in China. The result of his early work was the bare bones prototype of the tech recruiting platform, aimed at reducing the number of programming interviews with unqualified candidates. In 2009, we won the Seedcamp competition and soon afterwards registered in London, UK. Codility developed rapidly, moving its headquarters to Warsaw, Poland and expanding its global presence through an office in San Francisco, CA.

Greg started building a prototype of Codility in 2005 when he sought a way to quickly recruit software engineers for Exoweb, an IT startup he worked for in China. His early innovations and desire to focus on coding instead of interviewing resulted in him founding Codility four years later. Greg believes in science and is a passionate about engineering methods in software, hardware, finance, and business. With his life partner, Marta, he shares a love for music, food, travel, and their foster dog, Problem.
