❓ What Skills are represented the Skills Map?

Skills Map Overview

The Skills Map is our presentation of the candidate’s performance on necessary engineering skills, which are condensed into the ~8 skills we found are most relevant to the role you’re hiring for.

*Note that to best tailor Skills Reports to each role you are hiring for with Byteboard, the skills presented in the Skills Map (and which appear in the Priority Skills vs the Additional Skills groupings) will change depending on the interview domain and level of each candidate report! (e.g., SWE vs Web or Junior vs Senior)

These 8 skills are further grouped into 2 categories (Priority Skills and Additional Skills), arranged by which factor most into the candidate’s overall performance rating.
