We're hiring UI / Interaction designers.
Google Ventures has some great advice on whiteboard design exercises to give while conducting an interview -- but we're considering candidates in other cities who would move for the job, and I want to give them a (compensated) trial project. (GV article: https://www.gv.com/lib/how-to-interview-a-designer-with-the-perfect-design-exercise)
New to hiring, looking to learn what it's like to work with the candidates and get a better sense of their mobile UI abilities (which are lacking in a few portfolios). Also want to use it to compare closely qualified candidates.
Struggling to identify a good project to do just that. Any suggestions? Anyone used trial projects in hiring?
