My interview questions when hiring a front-end / back-end / whatever developer at Spatie

Original – by Freek Van der Herten – 1 minute read

I just read this nice blog post that contains a few tips on how to interview a Laravel developer.

When hiring someone at Spatie, I usually tend to get a feel if a candidate is passionate about our field of work.

I ask questions like:

  • Who are the people you feel you can learn from?
  • What blogs are you reading?
  • What new thing are you enthousiastic about?
  • What are the things you would change?

In most cases, these questions spark a nice conversation that covers the technical bits too.

You probably notice that this post is a lot shorter than usual. I'm experimenting with a new short format to share some quick thoughts.

Stay up to date with all things Laravel, PHP, and JavaScript.

You can follow me on these platforms:

On all these platforms, regularly share programming tips, and what I myself have learned in ongoing projects.

Every month I send out a newsletter containing lots of interesting stuff for the modern PHP developer.

Expect quick tips & tricks, interesting tutorials, opinions and packages. Because I work with Laravel every day there is an emphasis on that framework.

Rest assured that I will only use your email address to send you the newsletter and will not use it for any other purposes.
