I love the concept and have to imagine this will get better with more data. Looking forward to seeing where it goes!


Super easy to use, balanced set of questions, and quick feedback


It's tough to assess somewhere's technical level so quickly

Based on the name and thumbnail, I thought this was going to be similar to my "Pokemon or Cryptocurrecy?" quiz haha https://www.producthunt.com/post...
@daviswbaer Woah! 👋Saw your post about "Can You Wear My Company's Shirt" on IH the other day, didn't realize that you had made that Pokemon quiz too. You're killing it!
@jonathankau Hahaha yep, I like shipping silly ideas :)
I'm not sure this is accurate if you're a really bad/novice engineer... My dev skills are self taught and pretty terrible. I can't imagine I answered even 15% of the questions correctly, yet apparently I'm good enough to get a job as a software engineer (which I'm definitely not). Maybe include a "stop kidding yourself" option! Otherwise, really cool and well executed!
@louisnicholls_ Thanks for testing it out and sharing your thoughts 🙏That's a pretty good point, I had never really considered that people who aren't already full-time engineers would be curious enough about their skills to take the quiz. Will add to my todo list!
@louisnicholls_ @jonathankau Yeah...just took it a second time and selected "I don't know" for each answer, and it said I am ranked at SWE I
This is interesting, saw some traffic headed our way from your site today :) Evaluating levels from the disclaimer on your site and even comments here is unfortunately very difficult and has a ton of factors. We at www.levels.fyi are trying to tackle this from a slightly different angle based on current title. We've found many recruiters index heavily on current position even over experience in some cases though it is variable. Reach out at hello@levels.fyi if you think we can work together on something!
@ziggym0 Big fan of levels.fyi, will definitely reach out! Agree with most of your assessments, and was experimenting with setting up 1:1 evaluations between senior engineers/others for more accurate evaluations. Think there are many ways of potentially addressing these information gap issues though 👐
not working
@utkugenel Yeah, same. Clicking the button doesn't do anything for me.
