Discussion on: What's your ideal interview process?

I think it would be an engineering manager that does the full screening and probably would last around 30 minutes. I think the open-ended questions could be things pulled directly from the candidate's resume such as "I see you have JavaScript listed here, how long have you been using it and what types of things have you worked on with it?" or "In your position as a tech lead, it says that you led a migration to React, tell me more about that. Maybe why you chose it, what were some challenges in transitioning, or anything else you learned." Hopefully, it would be more of a conversation with the manager talking about similar tools being used or similar problems being solved at the company to make it more of a two-way interview.

Ah that makes sense. I like that approach and the open ended questions!
