The first step in your path is a brief remote interview via Google Meet. We’ll have a quick chat about what you’re up to at the moment, but the main focus will be us doing a bit of coding together in an online coding room.
We’ll look at the type of problem you might come across on sites like Leetcode and Codewars. This may be code reading or code writing, and the problems will be at the simpler end of the spectrum. There are no trick questions here, so if something looks really straightforward it’s probably because it is. We’re not looking to plumb the depths of your knowledge at this point, we just want to see you quickly and confidently tackling basic problems with ease, whilst communicating your approach.
We’re more interested in your general approach and the thought process you go through, so forgetting the name of a library function or a pesky semicolon isn’t a big deal. If you’re writing code, you’ll be able to pick a language you’re familiar with. We also chat through the code you’ve written and ask a couple of questions about it.
