Do design a fair way to assess technical skills
The first question technical team leaders ask is whether they want a devops engineer on their team, but standard approaches of interviewing candidates and testing technical skills may not work very well with a remote candidate, especially if there are language barriers.
Marko Anastasov, cofounder of Semaphore CI/CD, says, “You can teach a talented engineer any framework in six weeks, but you can’t make an engineer talented in any amount of time. To assess the technical skills of your candidates, nothing replaces a short 40-minute live coding interview. Don’t discriminate by technology, so let candidates use their favorite language and IDE.”
