Another superb quality of premium developers is their ability to help other developers get better. They offer teammates help when they are stuck, teach new skills to others and write documentation that would help teammates not only in their organization but the developer community in general. They also should be able to navigate the interpersonal nuances of working in a diverse team and be able to navigate conflict gracefully should it arise.
How to test this skill:
• See if the candidate has formal or informal experience mentoring other developers.
• Ask if they prefer working on a team or independently.
• When following up with references, inquire about whether the candidate was well-liked by their teammates, or if they could sometimes be challenging to work with.
• Ask questions to test collaborative skills
