Discussion on: How about a "transferrable" coding interview question?

I think it's generally unfair to get a candidate to do a technical test early in the process. After a first interview, maybe, but to be honest there's often not much benefit in a do-it-at-home test.

For our team, we send a coding puzzle (eg. HackerRank) as a way of figuring out if they meet the baseline of “I know how to code” and “I know how to logic”. This first pass does have a low signal to noise ratio. But it does help us in filtering the large volume of incoming resumes.
