Is your technical interview optimized? Could it use a refactor?
Do you ask candidates questions that could actually influence your production codebase? Or, do you ask them about problems that are solved and standardized? Or worse, contrived and trivial?
Have you ever asked any of these questions:
Find min or max in a list
Implement a sorting algorithm
FizzBuzz (or any contrived algorithm)
“Now can you do it recursively?”
Leverage your production code and commit history to make your next interview more effective in identifying the right hire. All while having more fun.
