Google has launched a new tool for potential candidates who are applying for engineering positions in various companies. Called Byteboard, the tool is developed by Google’s Area 120 incubator and will help candidates prepare for job interviews.
According to Byteboard’s general manager, the app will allow candidates to demonstrate their skills and knowledge in specific languages. He also mentioned that the tool creates real-world challenges which test specific skillsets required to do the job.
The structured, identity-blind evaluation process enables hiring managers to reliably trust our recommendations, so they have to conduct fewer interviews before reaching a confident hiring decision. For candidates, this means they get to work through the design and implementation of a real-world problem in a real-world coding environment on their own time, without the stress of going through high-pressured theoretical tests.
