So is triplebyte a recruiting company or something?
I have no idea what it is outside the scope of this post and taking that online quiz.
We're a hiring marketplace for software engineers.
Companies get access to a stream of job-seeking software engineers who've been pre-screened for technical ability via our quiz and interview.
In exchange for doing the up-front quiz and interview, engineers get to skip all technical phone screens and take-home projects at the companies we connect them with, and go straight to a final on-site interview. (We also schedule your interviews and pay for your flights and hotels if you're traveling for them.)
We coordinate timing of your job search on our end so you ideally end up getting multiple offers at about the same time, which creates a good competitive negotiating position for you.
Ah okay, cool. Good to know. I assume there is some kind of 'tag' for the questions behind the scenes so you can see that an applicant does badly on one set of questions or another?
Indeed. The quiz engine is pretty smart behind the scenes. We test out new questions every week and optimize to show you the next most informative question.

(I'm one of the engineers & interviewers at Triplebyte. Hope you don't mind if I comment here.)
So, I passed. A guy named Victor interviewed me and he was awesome (plus he has a dog, +5 cool points). My feedback seemed hit or miss but he was very impressed with my knowledge on a few subjects (I very nearly scored 'excellent' in JS). I don't have my hopes up too much based on my scores in other categories but this feels like such an exciting opportunity for me.
See you soon?
Excellent. Victor's great! Congrats. :)
I went through their process and got a few onsites out of it but no offers. Working with them was pretty good, but make sure you know that even if you make it over all their hurdles all it gets you is your foot in the door and you still have to go through the standard hiring process with the companies (take home coding tests, potentially multiple onsites, etc).
FYI, if this "standard hiring process" happened, this is a bug and we'd like to fix it. The two things you mentioned (take-home projects or multiple onsite interviews) are not allowed for companies when hiring on our platform. If these happened, please make sure your Triplebyte talent manager knows so we can make sure those companies clean up their process.
US companies only at this time. We do work with lots of Canadian engineers who are potentially open to relocating. See https://triplebyte.com/candidate_faq#question-8 for international details.
"Startups" is an imprecise word, but I doubt you'd count Apple or Dropbox in that category. :) If you're interested in only late-stage or large-team-size companies, that's a certainly a preference your Talent Manager will take into account as they connect you with companies.
To the person who reported this comment: yes, normally we don't allow people to link to their own commercial content like this. But in this case, it's sufficiently relevant since the original question was directly targeted at the company being linked to.
Seriously? It's ?www.tracking.qiaodeo.com/shittyprogramming because the perfectly functional one-liner job quiz question isn't micro-optimized?
In fact, every benchmark I create puts the split function as faster than the for loop, probably because of some internal optimization: https://i.imgur.com/geP7LAt.png
Have some gold :)
Really surprised to see the editor results. Are vim and emacs really that popular?
Triplebyte's published data on editors and programming languages is quite different: Sublime 17%, Vim 14%, Eclipse 11%, IntelliJ 11%, VS 11%, Atom 11%, ... Emacs 4%.
Stack Overflow published some editor data too: Notepad++ 36%, VS 36%, Sublime 31%, Vim 26%. Note that they allowed choosing multiple editors.
It's a surprisingly fragmented market. Just looking at the engineering team here, we definitely have Vim, Emacs, Sublime, Atom, and someone dabbling with VS Code.
We've found jobs for a growing number of ?www.tracking.qiaodeo.com/cscareerquestions readers via Reddit ads. Those engineers are pretty happy about the outcome, so we'll keep running ads on Reddit.
It's real. I'm one of the engineers here at Triplebyte and I personally interviewed one of the high school students we subsequently placed.
That said, it's also an outlier anecdote, which just makes it a fun and surprising story to share. Looking at the data, most of the engineers we work with have a few years of professional software engineering experience.
How much of experience is ideal to start applying at Triplebyte?
We work with engineers of all experience levels (Junior, Mid-level, Senior on up through Lead/VP/Director). Experience shipping real software definitely helps though. No surprises -- check out our interview guide and see if that sounds like a good fit.
Also, there's no harm in doing a Triplebyte interview now:
Looks cool but there are no stats -- all "-" or "0". Your endpoints are returning 500 errors.
