About the talk

RailsConf 2019 - Beyond the whiteboard interview by Joel Quenneville & Rachel Mathew


You've spent a lot of time preparing for this moment. Your palms are sweaty. You take a deep breath, walk into the room, and shake hands with the candidate. Welcome to the interview!

Interviewing can be intimidating and our industry is notorious for interviews that are arbitrary, academic, and adversarial. How can we do better?

Come be a fly on the wall for a real interview! At thoughtbot, we've put a lot of thought into crafting an interview that is both humane and allows us to accurately capture a candidate's strengths and weaknesses relative to the real-life work they will be doing.
