The tech community has a lot of bodies to fill the entry level so they want the best they can get, so if someone performs well on all their requests they will be more likely to get the position.

Like you said algorithms can be complex to learn, and more experienced devs likely have been exposed to algorithms and will be easier to identify.

Ultimately it comes down to the recruiter/hiring reps methods and what they value so it’s a gamble.
