➕ Adding New Interview Types

Best practices for creating interview types (including naming conventions) for your Byteboard interviews. Grading calibration happens at the Interview Type level.

1. Configuring Byteboard ‘Interview Types’ to Send Interviews to your Candidates

When sending out Byteboard interviews to candidates either from your integrated ATS system or via the Byteboard portal, Interview Type indicates the specific interview associated that is calibrated for the domain and level relevant to the candidate.


Typically, the Interview Type naming convention identifies the interview domain and level

  • Examples: Junior Mobile, Senior Mobile, Junior SWE
*Note - if at any time you’d like to add new Interview Types to your account, reach out to the Byteboard team. Interview Type is a field that must be configured by a Byteboard team member!

Byteboard grading calibration also occurs at the interview type level. If you’d like to adjust the grading for a particular subset of candidates (e.g, Senior SWE) so to tailor the high-level Byteboard ratings to better match your use case, please reach out to your Customer Success rep.

Best Practice Set up your Interview Types to easily identify both the domain and level associated with the Byteboard assessments that your candidates will be invited to take! If you need additional Interview Types configured for your account, reach out to a Byteboard team member to have them add new types.

2. Naming ‘Interview Types’ for your Specific Internal Use Cases


The Interview Type field is typically used to specify the Byteboard domain and level (e.g., Senior Mobile, Junior SWE) that is sent out to candidates and used to calibrate the level of grading for that candidate’s interview performance.


If your account has multiple teams that use the same domain and level of Byteboard interviews and want to distinguish between them, you can consider creating and using unique names for the Interview Types.


Some teams use this same practice to identify candidates applying for specific roles or in specific hiring periods.

  • For example, if team A sends Junior Mobile interviews to their candidates and team B also sends Junior Mobile assessments to a separate pool of candidates, you can set up two distinct Interview Types, ‘Junior Mobile Team A’ and ‘Junior Mobile Team B’, to more easily filter on this data in the Byteboard portal!
*Note if at any time you’d like to create more specific Interview Types like the example above, reach out to the Byteboard team to discuss options and create the best names for your filtering needs. Interview Type is a field that must be configured by a Byteboard team member.
