The car-hailing app is embedded with a game of code
Recruiters at Uber has found a sneaky way of finding their next hires. Users can now answer an app-embeded quiz while on their ride for a job at the tech company, Business Insider reports.
The game pops-up on the screen as a Code on the Road Challenge. The entire game involves just three general questions about coding.
Uber clarifies with the publication that the game doesn’t target specific people. It insists that instead of hunting down engineers or coders (Debner is employed at Microsoft), the secret game only pops up when the the location of the ride is in a tech hotspot. Business Insider talked to Joshua Debner who first brought the game to light and he said the questions were very general and weren’t specific to his field of interest.
