Jason Wodicka - Interviewing for culture
Show Notes

In part two of my interview with Jason Wodicka, Staff Software Engineer at Karat, we dig deeper into the process of creating predictive, fair, and efficient interview loops. In this episode we start with culture - how do you identify the cultural attributes important to help someone thrive in your environment and how do you interview for culture fit/culture add. We then discuss approaches to blending cultural and functional tests into an interview loop. We then take a little time to discuss how and when to provide hints for candidates during an interview and the surprising value of allowing candidates a redo.
