I interviewed with a middle-sized company (~500 employees) in Europe for a software developer position. The company's main business is software development. I had two interviews with the company. One with my potential boss and another one with the CEO. In both interviews I was asked standard HR and soft skill questions and some very general questions about my research (I did a PhD and this is my first job in industry), but I didn't had to write a single line of code or answer any technical question.
Nevertheless I got an offer that sounds quite good. However, I'm not sure what I should think of a company that does not conduct any coding tests. For all other companies I interviewed so far, I had at least a small coding task. Is this a red flag? I think it could be one, since if they hire like that, how do they make sure that they hire decent developers?
I realize that there is a very similar question: Is it an alarming sign, if a company's hiring process for senior/lead developer doesn't include a coding task? However, in my case, I wouldn't definitively be the best or most experienced developer and in theory I'm sure they know how to do a code interview since the company's core business is software development.
