We didn’t crack the coding interview, we redesigned it.

Candidates should be preparing for the job, not the interview.

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

Traditional skills map

Evaluates for interviewing skills

Requires months of preparation for theoretical questions that are often not reflective of what engineers do on-the-job.

Lacking quality control

Lacks quality control

Interviewers create their own questions that are undervetted and lack structured rubrics, resulting in biased evaluation.

Calendar with limited time

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

Traditional skills map

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.

Lacking quality control

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.

Calendar with limited time

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.
