You’ve probably seen it all.
Technical Phone Screens. Automated Coding Tests. Weeklong Take-homes. It’s time for something that actually works.
Traditional technical interview
Evaluates for interviewing skills
Requires months of preparation for theoretical questions that are often not reflective of what engineers do on-the-job.
Lacks quality control
Interviewers create their own questions that are undervetted and lack structured rubrics, resulting in biased evaluation.
Bottlenecked by scheduling interviewers and candidates
Recruiters constantly have to shuffle for available interviewers and candidate availability, delaying the time-to-offer significantly.
The Byteboard interview
Evaluates for on-the-job skills
A highly predictive project-based interview that simulates asynchronous engineering work in order to assess for real engineering skills.
Built and monitored by experts
An out-of-the-box interviewing solution of high-quality, calibrated, unique questions paired with structured rubrics for fair evaluation.
Scaleable replacement for pre-onsite technical interviews
Candidates can take the interview on their own time. Byteboard’s calibrated evaluators grade candidate materials and provide a detailed performance report.
Our interviews simulate real work.
The Byteboard interview replaces pre-onsite interviews across all of your key technical roles with a small, time-boxed project that simulates real-life asynchronous work.
Collaborate in a design doc and code in an existing codebase.
Use Swift or Kotlin to build an app in a real mobile development environment.
Make database design decisions and ingest and manipulate real data.
Site Reliability Engineering
Make systems design decisions and implement a reliable system.
The proof is in the pudding.
Companies like Betterment, Ezoic, and Lyft use the Byteboard interview to make their hiring process more effective, efficient, and equitable.
