Pinterest Has Acquired Hackermeter

Posted Oct 14, 2013

Pinterest has acquired a coding challenge website called Hackermeter and the website is now being shut down.  Hackermeter started only two months ago. 

Hackermeter assigned scores to users based on how good of a programmer they are.  Potential employers would be able to playback your code keystroke-by-keystroke using the website and can create challenges of their own. 

Hackermeter did not raise much in funding and they graduated from the Y Combinator Winter 2013 class.  Hackermeter was in the process of raising $750,000 before getting acquired.  Hackermeter co-founders Lucas Baker and Frost Li will become engineers at Pinterest.
