Assign Real Work Instead
In the era of open source, allow us to work on existing code and submit pull requests. We get to pick an existing issue and go for it.
- We win by getting familiar with current code bases.
- Companies win by getting pull requests regardless of the final hiring decision.
Schedule Interviews After the Pull Request
- After the pull requests are submitted, call us in for the interview and we can have an intelligent conversation about things that matter.
Just say no to finding all Fibonacci numbers between a specific range, on the spot.
It's time to Bring the Interview Process into the age of 2020 any beyond!
