We’re a team of developers who have experience doing technical hiring ourselves. We consider a wide variety of criteria that includes formal education, work history and side projects. If a developer has code available, like on Github or BitBucket, we review it.
Hundreds of people apply to OfferZen on a weekly basis. Every day we review applicants and accept those that pass our criteria.
If we are still unsure, we require a candidate to complete a coding assessment or other relevent screening test, and then we review them based on their results and their profile together.
