Senior Level Scenarios

Software Engineers do more than just code and your technical assessment should too!  Woven goes beyond the typical automated code quiz with real-world scenarios like reviewing a PR, debugging an outage, and handing off work to colleages.

Experienced engineers want to be evaluated on what makes them senior. That’s much more than code. Woven is the only option for senior-level scenarios like:

Code Review

Systems Design

Architecture Debugging

Scored By Real Engineers

Each candidate submission will be scored by two Woven Certified Engineers.  Double-blind scoring to a detailed rubric eliminates bias and guarantees consistent signal for the hiring team.


Scorer Background and Selection:

Our scorers possess backgrounds in computer science, software development, or software engineering. They undergo a rigorous selection process, including a work simulation where candidates score dummy assessments. Approximately 1 in 5 candidates pass this initial bar. The successful candidates then go through a multi-week onboarding process, engaging with training modules and scoring live assessments as a redundant 3rd scorer for certification.

Certification Process:

Scorers achieving a sufficiently low error rate (currently 6% or lower for initial certification, reducing to 5% or less in subsequent months) become certified as scorers in production. Day-to-day, scorers receive detailed reports on their mistakes and improvement notes from the QA team. Monthly reviews by Woven management ensure ongoing scorer performance. If error rates exceed our threshold, coaching is provided.

Reliability and Consistency:

Scorers operate in a double-blind environment, grading specific true/false rubric items within a scenario. Although scores should align, occasional discrepancies occur, necessitating a reconciliation scorer (3rd scorer) to decide the final score. Reconciliation errors are tracked and reported monthly, ensuring transparency. The error rate is approximately 1% due to the independent nature of double-scoring.
