Triplebyte now in Seattle and Los Angeles

Triplebyte now in Seattle and Los Angeles

Triplebyte is now available for engineers and companies hiring in Seattle and Los Angeles! We chose these as our next two locations after seeing increasing numbers of great engineers based in Seattle or LA signing up and requesting access to Triplebyte. Combined these two locations now represent 15% of our applicant pool so we decided the time was right to open up and start working with companies hiring there.

For our initial launch we'll be working with some great partners. We have great public companies such as Dropbox and TrueCar. We're also working with fast growing startups working on ambitious problems across a range of areas like self-driving trucks, fixing healthcare and disrupting real estate.

To get started hiring engineers in either location, sign up to Triplebyte and set your role location to whichever one you're hiring in. We're offering new companies in both Seattle and LA a special $15,000 fee on your first hire before the end of the year if you use this link: https://triplebyte.com/seattle_and_la/express.

You can also refer any companies hiring in either location by sharing this link. We’ll give you a $1,500 referral bonus when they make their first hire.

If you're an engineer looking to join a great company in Seattle or LA, get started by taking our coding quiz.

We're excited to continue adding more locations to the Triplebyte marketplace so we can help as many great people from any background find great companies to join.

How to Interview Engineers

By Ammon Bartram on Jun 26, 2017

We do a lot of interviewing at Triplebyte. Indeed, over the last 2 years, I've interviewed just over 900 engineers. Whether this was a good use of my time can be debated! (I sometimes wake up in a cold sweat and doubt it.) But regardless, our goal is to improve how engineers are hired. To that end, we run background-blind interviews, looking at coding skills, not credentials or resumes. After an engineer passes our process, they go straight to the final interview at companies we work with (including Apple, Facebook, Dropbox and Stripe). We interview engineers without knowing their backgrounds, and then get to see how they do across multiple top tech companies. This gives us, I think, some of the best available data on interviewing.

Bootcamps vs. College

By Ammon Bartram on May 19, 2016

Programming bootcamps seem to make an impossible claim. Instead of spending four years in university, they say, you can learn how to be a software engineer in a three month program. On the face of it, this sounds more like an ad for Trump University than a plausible educational model.

But this is not what we’ve found at Triplebyte. We do interviews with engineers, and match them with startups where they’ll be a good fit. Companies vary widely in what skills they look for, and by mapping these differences, we’re able to help engineers pass more interviews and find jobs they would not have found on their own. Over the last year, we’ve worked with about 100 bootcamp grads, and many have gone on to get jobs at great companies. We do our interviews blind, without knowing a candidate's background, and we regularly get through an interview and give a candidate very positive scores, only to be surprised at the end when we learn that the candidate has only been programming for 6 months.

How to pass a programming interview

By Ammon Bartram on Mar 8, 2016

Being a good programmer has a surprisingly small role in passing programming interviews. To be a productive programmer, you need to be able to solve large, sprawling problems over weeks and months. Each question in an interview, in contrast, lasts less than one hour. To do well in an interview, then, you need to be able to solve small problems quickly, under duress, while explaining your thoughts clearly. This is a different skill. On top of this, interviewers are often poorly trained and inattentive (they would rather be programming), and ask questions far removed from actual work. They bring bias, pattern matching, and a lack of standardization.
