Hi Tom, I'm an engineer and interviewer at Triplebyte. Your viewpoint matches the two layers of what we do quite well: first our team does a single centralized technical interview, and afterwards each of the companies we match someone to do their own final onsite interview. As we've already pre-screened the applicants for technical fit, the company onsites can be shorter, less technical, and can focus on evaluating whether the person would really be a good fit overall at that particular company.
This "good fit" does vary a lot from company to company: we found that 100+ different companies agreed on which engineering applicants were best about as often as different Netflix users agreed on which movies were best — that's not very often! See our post: triplebyte.com/blog/triplebyte-eng...
