Why is hiring broken? It starts at the whiteboard.
Quincy Larson

While I still use the whiteboard for interviews occasionally, my focus isn’t on having the candidate write down memorized algorithms. More importantly, I try to assess how well the person is capable of picking up and implementing new ideas. Not incredibly challenging ideas, but learning something in the interview and applying it immediately.
