Tell us about the interview process for this job

We evaluate candidate qualifications by relying on homework assignments. We feel strongly that homework is better than tricky whiteboard tests or timed challenges because: - Submissions are blindly graded in order to help remove bias. - Candidates have the time they need to produce a quality answer, as they would on the job. Candidates can start/stop the homework at any time and have multiple days to complete the exercises. - We engineer differently, according to the Agile methodology, and we rely on homework to evaluate candidate fit for our approach.

Ad Hoc is invested in hiring diverse employees who represent the diversity of the people our government serves. In addition, Ad Hoc prioritizes a company culture which values, considers, and invests in all team members.
