We hardly ever talk about our tech stack in interviews. We are much more interested in how someone thinks, works and tackles problems than we are in whether or not they have two years experience in a particular tool or language.
Recently, an engineer who hasn’t been with our team for long built an important feature for our app, and he did it very well. It doesn’t matter that he used a development tool we haven’t used in the past. We’d much rather be thrilled by new outcomes than be comfortable with the status quo.
We want to be especially clear that our tech stack shouldn’t discourage anyone from talking with us about how they’d fit here.
