      What do you most enjoy about programming?

      What is the hardest bug you've had to find & fix?

      Optional: You can also upload a small bit of code

          Why are you proud of this particular bit of code?

          Thank you for taking the time to let us get to know you a bit!

          Once this is sent, we'll send you a copy, and we'll take a few days to consider. The next step in our hiring process is to give you some real-world work, which will get increasingly complex over a series of weeks as each level is passed.

          Note we generally start people on paid test projects first, then hire on a probationary basis which then leads to permanent hires. Coders start on a fingernail, then a finger, then a hand, then an arm before proceeding to open heart surgery. When possible, we like coders to "own" a project and so whenever practical and possible once proven, we'll have you focus entirely on a product, usually new, so you will not spend a lot of time reading someone else's code, but instead writing your own.
