How to Ace Your Technical Interview

So you have passed the first stage phone interview, you’ve now been invited in for a technical interview for your developer position – now what?

We spoke to leading tech professionals from around Germany to offer some advice…

“As a candidate you should take the time and be prepared for the interview. In the interview it is always nice to show that you can communicate technical complex topics in a easy way. Explaining examples from your history and what you achieved in the past is always helpful.”

Peyman Pouryekta, Director Of Engineering at Spectrm

“Start from learning what is it exactly the company is looking for both in terms of hard skills and behaviours. Snoop around, hustle, Google the company, connect with people on LinkedIn, read blogs. Once you do that – listen to your inner voice if what you found out is actually something you want to do 40 hours a week, month after month. Nobody wins if you ace an interview and end up quitting once the honeymoon is over.”

Nikita Belokopytov, Head of Engineering at Nepos GmbH

“Find out the job fit in the screening call as much as possible, brace yourself, know your sh** and rock it.”

Jens Verneuer, Senior Director Of Engineering at Global Savings Group
