Ditch the Whiteboard, Interview at the Command Line

What People are Saying

"Opterview's interviewing challenges saved me a ton of time interviewing and vetting SRE candidates. I didn't have to establish a separate vetting process and was able to quickly identify the best person for the job and hire them. I only wish I could use Opterview for all of my other positions as well!"

Christopher MacGown, VP of Engineering

The Opterview Interview Platform

Collaborative Interviews

Work together with your candidates in real time via a shared web based terminal.

Full Linux Systems

Each interview is backed by an ephemeral Linux server created just for your session.

Everything in one place

Metrics, recorded video, and automatically saved file artifacts from your interviews.

Automatic screen capture

Don't rely on your memory to review a candidate's performance. A video recording of the terminal session is available after every interview.

All you need is a link

Getting your candidate started is as simple as giving them the interview session's secret url.

Unlimited System Access

Candidates can install software packages, read man pages, or perform diagnosis using adminstrative tools like strace or tcpdump.
