Keep Interviewing and Nobody Explodes - Reversim 2018

or "How WeWork uses games as part of our hiring process"

While finding good software engineers is hard, finding the right ones for your team is harder. As we grew our engineering teams, we found ourselves putting a lot of time and effort into not just the hiring of employees but also the fine-tuning of the hiring process itself. In this talk, I'm going to share with you how we use games as part of our interview process. What led us to use this technique, a few takeaways from running this experiment for the past year, how you can use it today and of course - a live demo where we defuse a bomb together
