I know this community is a big fan of leetcode, but I see lot of companies adopting hackerrank as a platform for coding interviews. Assuming there is functional parity between these two websites, which one is better and why?

    I think companies use hacker rank cause the codepair tool works well. Not cause it’s awesome for those who want to practice for interviews.

    I consider myself the smartest of the smartest and even I couldn't figure out how to successfully submit a solution on that platform

    Hackerrank questions are too verbose and I found them hard to understand.... Questions are really vague and doesn't really make sense what they're even asking

    Yes, hackerrank is for serious coding competitions, leetcode is great for job interviews. Though there is an overlap, they serve two very different purposes!

    Myself and the few other competent former technical HackerRank employees will tell you: use Leetcode. Most of HackerRank’s content is produced by 18-23 year old competitive programmers and college students in 3rd world countries with zero real work/engineering experience, oftentimes the ‘correct’ solutions have errors (the focus is cranking out new content) and I am baffled that the company hasn’t folded yet.

  • Leetcode is for interviewee to prepare. HackerRank/CodePair is for interviewer to give.

    Also the console in/out on Hackerrank is super annoying
