This article explains how searching on Triplebyte works in general. Go to this article if you're looking for details about how each specific filter functions.
What's different about sourcing on Triplebyte?
TL;DR: You'll find way more candidates, even if you set many specific search parameters!
Triplebyte sources hundreds of engineering candidates per week, and our network contains tens of thousands more. But beyond the quality of the candidate pool, another big advantage of sourcing through Triplebyte is how you can search.
On Triplebyte, you can search more even more powerfully than Boolean by using a mix of dealbreakers and stack ranking. That means you can filter the pool by dealbreaker factors (a candidate must meet every one or they will be hidden), then order the remaining pool by a wide range of stack ranked filters. This allows you to still see candidates who, for example, meet 9/10 of your nice-to-haves.
How does it work?
Click the Filters tab on the right side of your screen to open up the search interface.
Click any filter on the left to add it to your search. This will open a popup window with additional information about how the filter behaves. Some filters ask you for additional inputs, like the salary figures or locations you want to search for. Each filter defaults to either Dealbreaker or Stack Rank based on our recommendations.
Dragging filters to change weights and reorder results
Once you've added an assortment of filters, you can move them between the Dealbreaker and Stack Rank sections by clicking and dragging.
You can also drag stack rank filters into a different order to change their weight. Stack rank filters at the top of the list will be weighted more heavily than those at the bottom. In this example, we moved "Years of Experience in Subfield Full-stack and ML" to the top of the Stack Rank list so that it would be weighted more heavily than having a score of 3+ on the Algorithms & Data Structures quiz.
|1. Original order is determined by the order in which you add filters.||2. Drag filters within the Stack Rank category to change their weight. Filters are weighted more heavily from top to bottom.|
In this example, if you save the final panel and view those search results, you would only see candidates who have both set a work location preference that matches those locations and that you have not recently viewed, since those are the Dealbreakers.
The candidates who meet both of those dealbreakers will then be ordered based on the three Stack Rank filters, with the first filter carrying the most weight. Candidates that meet all 3 stack rank filters will be shown first, followed by candidates who meet stack rank filter 1 and 2 next, and so forth.
What are Triplebyte ML recommendations?
Under the Stack Rank section, you'll see an option to include Triplebyte ML recommendations in ordering.
This defaults "on" because it should help you find better candidates. Instead of displaying just straight match percentage, this tool will combine match percentage with our internal recommendations to tweak the order of candidates when we think it will be to your benefit. How it works will change over time as we get better at making recommendations.
What happened to my existing searches?
We imported all existing saved searches using the default category for each filter. That means some of your filters have been set as dealbreakers and some in stack ranking. You can edit this at any time by accessing the search via the Filter tab, or by clicking Edit search next to either set of filters.
