Debugging the Technical Interview: Crafting Processes that Reduce Bias and Meet Hiring Goals

SpeakersAgenda
About this Event

Is your technical hiring process equitable? How about effective?

Nobody builds a hiring process with intentional bias, but sometimes practices that are commonplace in the tech industry can unintentionally create unequal starting grounds for candidates. At the same time, these processes routinely fail to reach hiring goals.

In this roundtable, we’ll introduce best practices for creating equitable hiring processes that also achieve their ultimate goal -- hiring great software engineers.

Attendees will learn practical approaches for:

  • Improving candidate experience in the technical interview
  • Getting the right hiring signal using scoring rubrics mapped to the job description
  • Mitigating bias with structured and measurable interviews
