Beekey is looking for Full Stack Developers, Web Developers and Software Engineers

Looking to talk to people about the tech hiring process

I've been thinking about the huge amount of waste that goes into tech hiring lately.

The process for developers is awful because one ends up spending hours repeating a lot of the same interview with different companies. Looking for a new job is like taking on a part time job. Many people may opt not to do so because of all the energy it requires. Many people may also take an offer at a place not right for them because they're too exhausted to keep looking.

The process for companies is awful similarly because of how much time is spent interviewing candidates. If you interview 10 candidates and spend 4 hours on each, that's 40 hours not building product. Then you have to account for the fact that someone who is a good developer may not actually be a good interviewer. Now you need a good chunk of your product development team working on a skill set that has little use outside of hiring.

I'd love to talk to any engineer about the process, whether you've done one too many interviews or done a ton of interviews yourself.
