Interview with Outages

Evaluate and hire DevOps candidates with confidence

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.

Christopher MacGown, VP of Engineering

We used to spend an enormous amount of time on our DevOps hiring process, Opterview changed the way we look at the technical challenge and saved us precious time and energy.

Opterview is a crucial component in our interview process. In my opinion, there's no better way to really understand a candidate's fluency at the terminal in real-world outage situations.

Abe Stanway, CTO of Amperon

We didn't have a consistent methodology for understanding devops skills in the candidates we were interviewing. Before we started building a custom solution internally, we found Opterview and were able to adapt our interview process to test the skills we were looking for immediately.
