Discussion on: How I Evaluate You in a Code Interview

I totally agree with you. What do you think would be a good approach to an interview, if you had the opportunity to lay it out?

Usually when we are interviewing, I try to keep the candidate as relaxed as possible: voicing that explicitly, at the maximum two people at a given interview (with some exceptions). Doing that is easy enough, but how to actually make the candidate comfortable?

One good way (IMO) is to give enough time for problem solving through a tool like Hacker Rank or similar, and then after you have that out of the way, a friendly conversation about systems design/cultural fit/etc in person.
