Great questions for YOU to ask during a Technical Interview


As someone who has bomb their first 6 technical interviews. I as feel as though I should write about my experiences and inform the masses about what they should know before heading into a technical interview.

While I did sort them into HR and Dev. I have had in my experience ask both Hiring managers and Developers question on either pool these questions. Also, It's best to not assume your Hiring manager is not technical. You'll be surprised what are their response is to the questions I have listed for Developers.

For Hiring Managers

  1. Do you have a business card?

  2. What are the career growth opportunities for someone in this position?

  3. How does [company name] help developers stay in sync with current technologies?

  4. What is the most impactful thing I could do starting out at [company name]?

  5. What does the onboarding process look like for new candidates?

For Developer/Lead/managers

  1. What do you enjoy most about working at [company name]?

  2. Could you tell me your team technical stack?

  3. What does the average day look like for you?

  4. What will my role be during the first couple of months at [company name]?

  5. What performance metrics do you use to determine a successful ticket/feature is completes?

  6. Can you tell me a recent project or feature you that you feel proud?

Quick intro about myself:

I have been learning how to become a Software Developer for roughly 4 years now. A large part of my learning has been self-taught w/Free Code Camp and Youtube. I just recently graduated from a 12 week Java base Coding BootCamp called Zip Code Wilmington. But I have had knowledge of Java and Computer Programming since High School. I'm currently mentoring someone in JavaScript and Front-End Development using the same Free Code Camp and Codecademy. I've planned on writing some more post my prior experiences on technical interviews.
