Back in 2010, Smarterer co-founder, Dave Balter, was interviewing a candidate for an analyst role in his previous company. As the interview was coming to a close, the candidate asked:
“Aren’t you going to ask me about ‘R’?”
“What’s ‘R’?” asked Dave.
“A software language for statistical computing,” replied the candidate quizzically. “It’s fairly critical to this role…”
Dave thought to himself, how am I supposed to know which skills this analyst needs when I’m not an analyst myself? There had to be a better way to identify and measure professional skills…so Smarterer was born!
