Introducing StackSplit for Candidate Profiles

Casey Kinsey; Co-founder, HeapSort

Last month we launched StackSplit, our in-house scoring algorithm that measures the level of responsibilities that a HeapSort job listing requires across the entire web development stack. After testing it with both employers and our early adopter candidates, we knew it was a hit.

I’m excited to announce that this week we’ve extended the same feature to our candidate profiles. Now when you create a HeapSort account or edit your profile, you can list the various skills you want to showcase on your resume. We’ll take that data and generate a StackSplit score and graph for your profile. And, if you link your HeapSort account to LinkedIn, we’ll import your LinkedIn skills endorsements to get you started.

We also redesigned the profile slightly to feature your StackSplit score front and center. It’s the first thing potential employers will see on your profile, so you definitely want to update your skills. You want them to immediately know how badass you really are, right?
