I’ve been applying to some front-end jobs trying to find my first job in the tech industry. Had a startup from Angel List reply to me and give me a coding assignment as part of the weeding out process. The assignment is ambiguous and I don’t really know what to make of it.
Here’s the specs:
Thank you for your interest in Outernets. For our Creative Technologist role we are inviting candidates to complete a coding assignment:
We are leaving this assignment open-ended because we want to see your creativity in addition to your ability to code. However, if you need a starting point here are some things we like:
- Buttonless/mouseless interactivity
- 3D, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality
- Live video processing
We know that applying to jobs is a busy process, so please don’t spend more than a day or two in total on this task. Ideally your project can be deployed, but if you don’t have this option, you should at least provide a link to your code repository and instructions for running it locally.
Let us know if you have any questions and we look forward to seeing your work. Have a great day and good luck!
Anybody have any ideas in terms of what they’re looking for me to make? I’m not sure I understand the tasks or the idea of buttonless/mouseless web design. It sounds to me like maybe they want me to make an animation but I’m not sure.
I know HTML/CSS/JS and React pretty well, but I have zero experience with animation (outside of anime.js, waypoint.js, i.e. basic JS libraries that can do small animations). I’m not sure if I could make any complex animations and that wasn’t listed on the job requirements.
Any idea of how I should approach this?
