We try to keep this process as objective as possible. To do that, we have quantified several variables that your team leader will appreciate.

Here (opens in a new tab) you can see the general ranking and the metrics of most of the candidates who have passed through Autonomic Jump. If you click on any user, you can see more detailed metrics. Most of the metrics have a self-explanatory name and even a help bubble. Shall you have any doubt about either of those, please do not hesitate to contact your recruiter.

You can keep tracking of your metrics on the following page:{$Assigned-Nickname}/

Just replace your {$Assigned-Nickname} with the nickname given to you by your recruiter when you request acces to the repo. You can ask him/her to give it to you.


This process does not have a specific dedication, so we recommend that you organize your time and try to dedicate at least 3 daily hours.

Unique Solutions

Each challenge is contained within a folder in our repository. Within each folder, there are all the solutions to that challenge made by other candidates in different languages (we refer to this as an internal solution), and another file named OTHERS.lst containing links to solutions to that challenge available on the internet (we refer to this as an external solution). A unique solution means that you uploaded a solution to a challenge in a language that did not have any internal or external solutions. For more details, please refer to Uniqueness.

Average Hour Per Unique Solution

This is one of our most important metrics and shows how long it takes you to upload a unique challenge (in other words, how fast you learn something new). It is the ratio between total-hours/unique solutions. The lower the number, the better.


Please do not get obsessed with lowering the metric at any cost. We actually strongly encourage you to forget about it and just carry on at your own pace. What is important to us is to see that, in the middle term, the number gets lower over time.

Initial Commits

This metric shows us how many attempts you had to make before you successfully uploaded your first solution. In other words, it shows us your resilience and tolerance to frustration. Here we are not looking for a specific number, we just want to see how the number evolves over time.
