Fabien Peyaud, Co Founder



A startup founder has an existing software product built by a contractor in React.js and wants to redesign the front end so it gets a modern look. They found a Front end developer on Upwork and want to see can he do the job.

How do they know if this candidate has experience in React.js? He/she may have just been building Wordpress templates or static HTML front ends.


The answer is to request a technical assessment, which Leader Internet's team of Software Engineers will conduct over skype to measure the if the developers level of knowledge matches their own expectations.


1) What is technical screening?

A Technical Screen is the process of interviewing a developer or engineer to assess their programming abilities. The goal is to establish if they have the skills required to meet the requirements of the position on offer.

2) Why should I use a technical screen?

Putting a candidate through a technical screen will provide assurance that your potential hire has the necessary skills that when you assign them a task on day one, they can deliver it on time.

You may not have the programming background or knowledge to ask coding questions that allow you to form an opinion on an engineer so outsourcing to an expert that can speak to the candidate in their language allows you to work around this problem.

Time and effort lost on firing and rehiring a new candidate can be avoided by having Leader Internet evaluate the developer's skills up front to remove uncertainty down the line.

3) Who uses our services?

  • Startups who want to make their first technical hire
  • Large Companies who want to reduce time spent on the interview process
  • Small Businesses who want to hire an all round 'IT Guy'
  • Entrepreneurs that have a freelancer to build their product but want to see if he/she can do what they say
