Traditional talent models are under serious pressure. They represent a now-antiquated philosophy for pursuing opportunity: hire a pool of qualified individuals to respond to the needs of the business. Hire more as the business grows. But “hire and retain” just isn’t working anymore, and the struggle is redefining how companies will drive objectives in the future. Complicating things further, many staffing firms have adopted a “throw spaghetti at the wall” approach, rather than providing the specific, high-quality talent companies demand.

My friend is being trained in ServiceNow(fresher). She got a call asking her to work as a linux admin from the same company. She likes to work in cloud computing and asked the same in the call. They said that linux is first and if there's a chance she will be moving to cloud. They also said it would be rotational shift. She personally likes linux but when researched she came to know that she will be doing L1 tasks. The package is same for both the roles. What role should she take? Pls suggest.

Does there seem to be diversity at Toptal?

...No diversity at all (which results in quite a toxic and competitive culture)....Read More

  1. Senior Backend Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Russia
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Toptal (Russia) in Dec 2021


    1st stage - video presentation of yourself
    2nd stage - algorythms interview (2 not hard tasks)
    3rd stage - homework (quite a big assignment that took about 8-9 hours)
    4th stage - interview with a seniour developer about the homework (run tests, tell about the solution, fix bugs)

    And I got a negative experience at the end since I was declined just because of couple of minor bugs. I'm sure 100% these guys do these bugs too. I don't understand what's the problem with a little bug if I covered with tests all other possible cases, they work fine and I was able to fix the bug right here right now?
    Waste of quite big amount of time. Super weird politics with zero bug tollerance.
