What is Honeypot?

Honeypot is a tech-focused job platform that checks candidates for their programming skills after they have registered and thus offers a qualified selection of applicants. Every Monday new candidates are published on the site for three weeks.

Companies or recruiters can use search and filter options to look for candidates with specific knowledge and contact them directly. This speeds up your recruitment process considerably. Honeypot is the easiest way to find software developers, DevOps engineers, data scientists, product owners, QA testers and engineering leads.
