Solve a puzzle, get a job: Quixey gamifies the hiring process
Quixey is an app discovery engine with a problem, and it's not just the odd name.
Like many startups, Quixey's key issue is finding talent -- great talent. The Palo Alto-based company, founded in 2009, has to compete with the likes of Facebook, Apple, and Zynga for top engineering employees in an extremely hot job market filled with engineers.
So how does the company make sure it hires the best people for the job without wasting time on the wrong applicants?
