Blackbox Connect and Google for Entrepreneurs Announce Selected Start-ups for the Fall 2014 Program. In their joint mission to empower entrepreneurs worldwide, Google and Blackbox are bringing successful international start-up founders to Palo Alto for a two week intensive program that serves as a link to Silicon Valley start-up resources and as a springboard for launching their products in the US and scaling their companies globally.

From Pakistan, Remote Interview has coded its way onto the Blackbox connect program this fall. Pi Labs’ Remote Interview, a brainchild of Munir Usman (CEO, Pi Labs) and Asad Memon (Developer), is an interactive interviewing platform to hire coders for your company. The concept works around the principal of hiring the right coders by assessing them for the right skills. Remote Interview works in a simple way, as simple as 1, 2, 3.

1. Collaborate with Candidate

Effectively Collaborate with the Candidate and your team by adding multiple interviewers. Conduct Audio/Video calls, add tasks and watch the candidate code in real-time.

2. Measure Candidate’s Skills

During the interview, rate the candidate on his good and bad moves and review them later along with code screenshots. View Candidate summary at the end of the interview to check his score and ratings by other interviewers as well.

3. Hire the Best Coder!

The list for all the Candidates is compiled and automatically the ones with the best score come up. All you’ve got to do now is hire the best coder!

Simple, yet effective. It enables you to assess and pick the right candidate for your firm and saves you a lot of valuable time, as all the work is done in a virtual interactive manner. A real time innovation is what Remote Interview is all about.

About the Founders:
