What is Honeypot?

Honeypot is a tech-focused job platform that screens candidates for their programming skills after they have registered to provide a qualified pool of applicants. New candidates are posted on the site every Monday for a period of three weeks at a time.

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