For hiring experienced developers on a specific tech stack, algorithmic tests may not be the best idea. For example, if you’re hiring a react js developer you may want to interview a candidate by giving a react task rather than giving a mathematical algorithmic task. Similarly, if you’re hiring a devops engineer you would prefer asking candidates to successfully deploy an application on a linux server rather than asking to solve a dynamic programming challenge. Automated take-home assignments have several benefits including:
Complex screening tasks as simple as building a to-do application or creating an API service can take an hour to two. These project tasks sometimes require candidates to use their own tools and work in the style they would if they were on the job. They can review and iterate on their work, take time away to think or rest, and rewrite. This method of candidate assessment removes a lot of the stress associated with onsite challenges.
