If possible, it begins with a short (5-10) minute phone conversation to explain the process and answer any questions. If the person has a disability, we'll opt for IRC/XMPP/Email/Slack/whatever.
Our process is then:
We then evaluate the candidates objectively:
We make our hiring decision based off these metrics. Over time, we plan to add better metrics and cull the ones that aren't a better predictor of excellent hires.
We do not look at resumes, CVs, etc.
We do not whiteboard candidates. We do not fly anyone anywhere for a stressful in-person interview.
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.
