CodeLive is a great way to assess candidates in a real-time technical interview. You can have multiple hiring managers/engineers join the session and work on a problem with the candidate concurrently, connecting voice and video as needed.
You can find out more about CodeLive from the video below:
Codility provides 3 ways to run your CodeLive interviews - Template Mode for structured interviews, Report Mode for a continuation of the candidate experience, and, Whiteboard mode, our most flexible option for on-the-fly tasks.
Every CodeLive room has:
- Video/audio call capabilities
You can join the CodeLive room with audio and video for a live interview. As an interviewer, you can enable fullscreen video mode so the interviewer(s) can minimize distractions when coding isn’t happening and focus on speaking with the candidate directly.
While you can create a session that would contain Whiteboard only, it is also included in other modes (Template and Report). Whiteboard allows you to work with your candidate using your own content. You can start from scratch with the candidate or prefill the task description right before the session. You can see the languages available in Whiteboard here.
Canvas is another feature available in our remote interviewing product CodeLive. Using the Canvas, both interviewer and candidate can quickly draw diagrams and shapes to translate technical questions on a high level.
How to join a CodeLive Session
In order to join a CodeLive session, you'll need a link to that specific CodeLive Room. This link is generated during the room creation, so if you didn't create the room, then you'll need to receive it from that person.
If you're not logged in, then you'll need to do that after clicking on the link. You need to have an Interviewer permission level or higher.
How do candidates join a CodeLive Session
When you're setting up a CodeLive session in advance, you need to send your candidate the session URL.
When it's time for the interview, the candidate will open the URL, click "enter as candidate" and fill in their details before entering the session.
Please note, only once the interviewer has entered and clicked "Start interview" can the candidate enter the room.
