CodeInterview is a cloud-based live programming tool for code interviews. CodeInterview empowers both candidates and interviewers to solve coding problems in real-time with an online code editor and compilers.

This guide is for those techies who are being interviewed for any software engineering role by an organization. This document has instructions on how to use CodeInterview to get hired.

  1. Invited to Interview
    The interviewer sends you an invite link – accept it and you will join the pair-programming session with your interviewer and now you both share the same pad. The visible left pane is the code editor, whereas the right pane gives the terminal-style output. You can also have a video call with your interviewer using the Make Call button. The task will be given to you by the interviewer.

  2. Programming Languages
    No matter which programming language is your forte, CodeInterview likely supports it and you may access them with a single drop-down option. CodeInterview allows you to run your code as you write it.

  3. Some Important Features

    • The programming language can be selected using the Language dropdown.

    • The code written in the left pane can be executed using the Run button available at the bottom left and the result will be displayed in the right pane. The output can be cleared using the Clear button.

    • The settings button helps you access the editor and customize key bindings, tab spaces, size as well as toggle the theme. It also lets you change the property of auto-complete.

  4. After the Interview
    CodeInterview saves everything typed into the pad. Once the interview is done, the replay is inaccessible to you.
    The results will be shared as per the company’s policy. If you have any queries related to how CodeInterview works, send them to
