Test for the
skills that matter

Our interview projects are startup-specific. They're designed to suss out if a developer has the practical on-the-job skills they need to keep up on your team. Something traditionally hard to do, but Hatchways makes it easy.

The alternative to live coding

How we write software has changed, but the way we interview has not. Traditional processes overlook some of the best talent by creating a high stress environment that disadvantages diverse talent and obscures the soft skills required to build an outstanding team.

Our practical process

Invite to a
GitHub Repository

Candidates complete their work on a GitHub repository. Bring your own assessment or leverage one from our large bank of tried and tested ones.

Submits a
Pull Request

Candidates submit their work via a pull request, which creates a place for our team to review and collaborate with the candidate.

Soft + Hard
Skills Signals

Our reviews enable you to see the practical on-the-job skills that matter and experience how it feels to work with the candidate on the job.
