People who say that hiring great engineers
is more art than science tend to be rubbish at both


Code Pilot was born in 2017 on a rainy morning in Austin, TX. What started as helping some non-technical co-founders hire their first engineers became a data science company committed to doing its part to transform the technology sector into more of a meritocracy.

Our ideas and banter were raised in the canebrake by a local barista out of the kindness of her heart.

What do we do

We use data science, machine learning, and automation to amplify signal (what matters, i.e. abilities) and remove the noise (what doesn't i.e. how well someone interviews) so engineers and hiring managers can get to work 9x faster with better results.

How? ...magic ...and Medici coffee

Our mission

Our mission is to change the hiring process. An engineer should be judged on their talent, which is why we created Code Pilot portfolio. Portfolio is an intelligent platform where engineers showcase, validate, and share their skills with hiring managers in real-time.

There is no need for a resume, cover letter, phone screen, or technical interview when they build a Code Pilot portfolio.
