My Interview Checklist

oz, 2018-12-02

Heavily inspired by and copied from Julia Evans' "Questions I'm asking in interviews". I intend to use this from both sides of the table: when I am the interviewee and when I need to gauge a candidate's interest.


Could be answered by up-front investigation:


Questions to ask ordered by stage (when to ask in the interviewing process) and topic.

Organization, management, culture

Career, community

Development, team

Adapted Joel Test, less binary, more Julia questions. Let's call it "Joel & Julia Test" (or "JJ Test"):


While on-site

Questions for potential team mates

(Could be one prepared A4 printout per person)
