    Interview

    The interview process for GitHub as a software engineer typically begins with a resume and cover letter submission. If the candidate's application is selected, they will be invited to participate in a virtual technical screening, which consists of coding challenges and a coding exercise. If the candidate passes the technical screening, they will be invited to participate in a series of virtual on-site interviews with members of the engineering team. These interviews typically include technical questions and problem-solving exercises, as well as behavioral and cultural fit questions. The final stage of the interview process may involve a reference check and an offer of employment.
