When recruiting I tend to look for intelligence (looking at a problem from more than one angle) and engineering mindset (leverage critical thinking to solve the problem) over a skillset (Guru level Solidity developer).

I'd appreciate hearing what you guys think are good interview questions to mine a good engineer from a group of applicants.

Ok, I'll be the genesis here...  Some theoretical questions I could ask are:
- What is cold storage and how does it work?
- Difference between POW and POS?
- From a technical standpoint, what's a smart contract, where is a smart contract, how does a smart contract work?

- What is Turing complete language?

It is very beginner questions.
You can find all the answer very easely on the internet.

In few words.
 - cold storage : you disconnect from internet the system where yours privates keys are.
 - PoW : your return is dependant of the electricity you burn - PoS : your return is dependant of the number of coin you have
 - Samrt contract : the transaction is dependant of some external conditions

The easiest and speedest way to begin to mine (la façon la plus simple et la plus rapide pour commencer à miner) : Minergate

It is obvious that you are looking for talent rather then knowledge. So don't ask them questions like the above, instead give them a problem to solve.
Just give them some small portion of work that you will want them to do or something related to it and see how they do.

Thanks aleksej996 - sometimes people feel companies are trying to get some "free consulting" by giving them a problem to solve, but I'll try to be clear of my intentions and see what they say!

I agree the demos are best, but great questions are simply to ask what they have done in the past when faced with ___ . Ask a bunch of probing questions for follow up. Then ask them another scenario. Be sure to look for the patterns in the answers - it's never about one word, or one bad or good thought, it's about the patterns. Most people get hung up on the details, but it's about the patterns.
