Interview with Outages

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.

The Opterview Interview Platform

Structured Challenges

Confirm your candidate's technical skillsets with prebuilt interview challenges based on common software outages.

In The Browser

Watch with your candidates work in real time in a zero setup web based shared terminal.

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.

Full Linux Systems

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

Root Access

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

All you need is a link

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