Stripe Atlas: Guide to scaling engineering organizations
Every company’s recruiting process and hiring needs are unique. When I first joined Stripe, we had just one dedicated technical recruiter supporting dozens of referrals and new applicants. Since then, we’ve improved, added, or replaced almost every part of the recruiting process and nearly quadrupled the size of our engineering team. I’ve found our processes run well for about 6-9 months before we need to update them.

10 Impressive Questions to Ask in an Interview 2018
A surprising number of candidates don’t have many questions at all, or simply use the time to try to further pitch themselves for the job.

Exactly what to say when recruiters ask you to name the first number… and other negotiation word-for-words – blog
At this point, I don’t feel equipped to throw out a number because I’d like to find out more about the opportunity first – right now, I simply don’t have the data to be able to say something concrete. If you end up making me an offer, I would be more than happy to iterate on it if needed and figure out something that works. I also promise not to accept other offers until I have a chance to discuss them with you.

This is why you never end up hiring good developers — Quartz
Your first stage of interviewing should be attempting to answer two questions:

Can they do this job? This is not the same as “can they do this job right now?” but you need to be confident they can learn how to do the job.
Are they going to get better at this job? The answer has to be yes.

Interviewing for Potential – Brent Baisley – Medium
A person’s ability to perform is based on their potential to succeed. Potential is the ability to be effective long term. Trajectory is the progress one has made on the path to reaching his or her potential. Performance is the act of tapping into our potential — it’s a side effect of potential and trajectory.

How to Interview Engineers - Triplebyte Blog
We do a lot of interviewing at Triplebyte. Indeed, over the last 2 years, I've interviewed just over 900 engineers. Whether this was a good use of my time can be debated! (I sometimes wake up in a cold sweat and doubt it.) But regardless, our goal is to improve how engineers are hired. To that end, we run background-blind interviews, looking at coding skills, not credentials or resumes. After an engineer passes our process, they go straight to the final interview at companies we work with (including Apple, Facebook, Dropbox and Stripe). We interview engineers without knowing their backgrounds, and then get to see how they do across multiple top tech companies. This gives us, I think, some of the best available data on interviewing.

What you should be looking for in a product person – The Startup – Medium
I believe that we need to think about what is missing in our product and then map these six passions. When I say “missing in the product”, I don’t just mean the product itself; rather, the whole product team, whether it’s founders looking for a product founder to join, hiring a VP of Product, adding a PM for a product team, or adding a PM to a multi-disciplinary squad.
