Seattle startup AdaptiLab sells interviewing software to CoderPad as founders pursue new idea
Founded in 2018, AdaptiLab’s software helps hiring managers interview candidates for machine learning and artificial intelligence roles. It lets users create coding challenges and get stack rankings of applicants. Customers include Pinterest, Convoy, Experian, and others.
CoderPad also offers an interviewing tool designed for potential engineers. The 8-year-old company, which raised funding from Summit Capital last year, will add AdaptiLab to its product suite. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Wu, who appeared on GeekWire’s Elevator Pitch show, said he and Lu are now working on a new secretive company with support of AdaptiLab’s previous investors, along with new backers.
“We’re planning to do a public launch later this summer,” Wu told GeekWire. “We’re targeting the developer market. The product will be for individual developers and development teams in companies and open source projects.”
AdaptiLab’s investors included Bellevue, Wash.-based venture capital firm Trilogy Equity Partners, and angel investors such as Ken Glass, Sarah Imbach, Bharat Shyam, and Kirby Winfield.
