What do you use instead of the white board interview to make sure the candidate is right for the position?
We do one design interview, and one programming interview (out of 5 total). Candidates are encouraged to use the whiteboard if it helps them explain their thinking, but the whiteboard is just a tool.
So "design" will concentrate on architectural decisions, whereas "programming" will concentrate on things like algorithms and data structures.
The other 3 interviews are all about behavioral questions, not programming ones.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
