What interview techniques should you use to hire the best Erlang developers?

When hiring the best Erlang developers, it’s important to always remember your goal for the interview. It’s to evaluate your potential candidate’s skills and understanding within the window time of the interview.


Here are some helpful tips for interview questions and techniques that you can apply to determine the best Erlang developer for you and your tech project.


Always ask questions aimed for effective assessment

It’s important to ask questions to the interviewee that can help you assess them with a standard gauge already in mind. Your queries should help you assess if the candidate meets and possibly exceed said criteria. Based on their answers, do they have similar beliefs that align with your company’s culture, values, and goals; do they meet the required competencies and expectations of the role as an Erlang developer for your tech project.


You can easily determine important points by simply asking the interviewees. Know the level of their in-depth knowledge and understanding of Erlang. It’s strongly encouraged to ask about their most recent projects like this a way to know the practical application of their technical skills. Also, note how they talk about their recent project and how well do the Erlang developer candidates explain concepts that aren’t understandable to non-technical people.


Also, note their communication skills. It’s a common stereotype that developers are quite shy and very quiet, these are often correlated to the nature of their profession. Regardless of these sweeping misconceptions about developers, a person’s communication skills are still very important as these help in a lot of misunderstanding and problems that could possibly arise in the future. Pay close attention to the non-verbal cues exhibited by the interviewees through the Erlang developers throughout the interview session. A few things to always take note of is the tone of voice, body language, their posture, frequency in eye contact, and their use of hand gestures. It indicates how comfortable they are with interaction and how they handle being the centre of attention when presenting something. Their soft skills are still equally important as this maintains a good working relationship with you and to both of your in-house and offshore development teams.


Conduct technical tests

For any highly technical position, such as an Erlang developer, it’s strongly encouraged to hold online programming tests for them as these further assess their depth of knowledge, experience, and critical thinking skills through real-time practical application.


By the end of these tests and interviews, choosing your Erlang developer candidate who is more qualified than at face value will always be the wisest choice as they should be able to assess any problem that arises, effectively troubleshoot and be communicable when the problem is more complex and requires help.


Here are some sample questions that you can ask your candidates.


Q: How run-time error is handled in Erlang?

A: It is possible to prevent run-time errors and other exceptions from causing the process to terminate by using Catch or Try. Catch Expr returns the value of expression unless an exception occurs during the evaluation. Try Exprs is the enhancement of catch with the ability to identify the exception class and choose to handle the desired one.


Q: Name the datatypes that Erlang provides?

A: Erlang provides two datatypes;

  • Constant data types. These types of data types cannot be split into more primitive subtypes. It consists of Numbers and Atoms.
  • Compound data types. These types of data types are used to group together with other types of data types. It consists of tuples and lists.


Q: Kindly explain, what is a record and how you can define records in Erlang?

A: The following explains what a record is and defines how it is used in Erlang;

  • For storing a fixed number of elements, a data structure is used which is referred to a record. Expressions are translated into tuple expressions during compilation record.
  • Record in Erlang is defined by the name of the record, followed by the field names of the record. Record and field names must be atoms.
  • Example: record (Name, { Field1 [= Value] , … FieldN [= ValueN] } )


Q: Kindly explain, what is Spawn/ 1l3 and Spawn_link 1l3?

A: The following explains what is Spawn/ 1I3 and defines what is Spawn_link 1l3 in Erlang;

  • Spawn/ 1l3: It creates a new process and returns its pid. In the system scheduler queue, the new process is placed so that it runs some time later.
  • Spawn_link/1l3: It provides the same functionality as spawn/1l3 but with the addition of a link that is atomically created between the newly spawned process and the caller.
