Why should I use X-List when the Xpo.Network Platform is so awesome?

Xpo.Network is a great resource for building your start-up talent brand. We recommend that companies use Xpo.Network and X-List in tandem, by updating their job listings on Xpo.Network to increase the flow of inbound applicants.

Do candidates take coding tests to get onto X-List?

No. In our experience, coding tests not only disrupt the candidate flow, but engineers with multiple years of experience also don't need to be tested at this stage in the hiring process. Insteas we have developed a solution to automatically benchmark a candidates code based on their previous work.
