Coding Challenges

Coding Challenges are essential part of the IT hiring process, especially when it comes to interviewing non-senior candidates.

The key benefits, which come with this approach are:

  • The interviewer can observe and estimate the entire thinking process of the candidate.
  • Candidates demonstrate the practical side of their skills.
  • The discussion is always open during the interview, which gives freedom to the experienced interviewer - he/she could give hints or ask questions during the coding or to remain silent.
  • It is easy to estimate the candidate's grasp of the programming fundamentals.

We use a coding sharing platform, which provides lots of choices for programming languages to be used during the interview. Also, some candidates feel a lot more comfortable sitting behind their own computer and coding, instead of being in front of a whiteboard, for example, which is beneficial for both sides.
