After spending your time & energy to find a promising candidate, you bring them in for in-person interviews only to find out that they can't code or wouldn't fit too well with your team. The whole process just cost you your team's valuable time, in addition to the money spent on the logistics of the in-person interview.
Codassium is the next best thing to an in-person interview, minus the logistical expenses. You get a collaborative code editor with syntax highlighting, video conferencing, code execution and a collaborative Linux terminal. Schedule interviews, send out calendar invites and share notes with your team effortlessly from one convenient platform.
Phone screens strip out an important part of the human communication process - facial expressions and body language. You end up missing out on important visual cues that are crucial for identifying the right people for your team.
With WebRTC video conferencing and a collaborative code editor, you can really work through a problem with a candidate as you would do in a face-to-face interview session. You can even execute the code right from the browser.
Lack of basic indenting and syntax highlighting is frustrating for your candidates. And, who is going to track and manage these documents? Google Docs was a good old hack, but it's 2014 and we can do better.
Every Codassium session has a fully-functional collaborative Linux shell that you can use to test the candidate on Linux know-how, Git, bash and what not. Want vi? Knock yourself out with collaborative vi.
