Building an effective and diverse engineering team is never easy. One must not only cast a wide sourcing net but should also ensure that their hiring process doesn’t overlook the importance of diversity focused interview questions. Non-standard questions or questions that only appeal to candidates from a certain background or experience level inadvertently allows unconscious bias to influence your screening.
Further, once an interviewer has asked just one or two questions, they often have already made up their minds regarding a candidate. Suffice it to say, there’s more to building diverse and highly productive engineering teams than meets the eye.
Which is why, along with JazzHR, we’ve outlined the interview questions that need to be asked to ensure that you build the most diverse engineering team possible. Pick and choose from the questions in this document so you can conduct the best interviews and make the right hiring choices, based on your team’s unique needs.
