Great article!

But I still think that recruiting processes adopted by big companies are not necessarily ideal for smaller ones. I mean, what if a startup with a team of 5 decides to hire a new member? I'm not sure whether there will be enough resources to do a group interview.

Or should you ask candidates about advanced computer science topics when you are looking for a person who will be working with parsing and producing JSONs most of their time?

Basically, companies should be looking for people who can manage to get the job done, and not "A-players", "ninjas", "gurus", whatever.
