The reason why you give a coding interview to a software development candidate is to make an educated guess of how well they will do their job if they are hired. This post will tell you the best way to give an online coding interview and how to provide a better candidate experience by code paring remotely.
Coding interviews used to involve reading tea leaves. Then the crystal ball came along and changed the industry overnight.
Of course, I’m joking but a lot of the popular methods for interviewing software developers predict their success about as well as a crystal ball.
What you want to see is how your developer candidates perform under real-world conditions. At the same time, you want to make it as painless as possible for your candidate to take the test.
An online code pairing interview gives you a window onto your candidate’s development process in as close to a real environment as you will find anywhere.
