150,000 engineers assessed

Otherbranch was founded by the former assessments lead for Triplebyte (YC S15). Assessments built by her team screened more than 150,000 engineers worldwide (about half of them in the US), plus another 100,000 more on later assessments built on that foundation.

Put another way, several percent of all US software engineers have taken one of these assessments.

2,000+ full
technical interviews conducted

Our interviewing team is composed of senior engineers with thousands of hours of interviewing experience placing candidates at top Silicon Valley companies.

They've worked at Google and Amazon and they've studied at Waterloo, and they know that isn't the whole story of how good an engineer is.

Standardized for statistical rigor

How many interviews would you need to confidently differentiate between a source with a 20% pass rate and a source with a 30% pass rate? Ten? Fifty?

The correct answer, under typical statistical assumptions, is more than 600. And that's under a lot of simplifying assumptions - the real situation is much worse!

Unless you're Google, you're not doing 600 of the same interview. But we are. We have the math - and the sample size - for statistical power you can't get on your own.
