Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Santa Barbara, CA (US)

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at AppFolio in January 2013.

Interview Details It is quite a standard interview process. It emphasizes a lot on the breadth rather than the depth of knowledge in CS. All coding questions are reasonable and fair. From HR to CEO, all people there are very helpful and friendly. Their products are also very promising and starting to get a lot of revenue.

Interview Question – Various types of sorting algorithms and their complexity. Process of a URL being entered to a page rendered to users.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – This is my first offer and given the fact that this is a startup company and the pay is a bit below average.

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Santa Barbara, CA (US)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at AppFolio in November 2007.

Interview Details The first interview was with the CTO, who described the general work to be done, with some talks about my background in software. The next was with a remote engineer over the phone, who asked more technical questions about my history and experience with Ruby on Rails and programming in general. After that, a one-on-one with their lead engineer who presented several programming challenges. A less formal chat with the president and CEO, then a follow-up with the CTO again.
