Anonymous Interview Candidate
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at AltaML
Excellent experience. The entire process was handled very well. HR followed up after the interview(s) for post/exit impressions. I felt and was respected at every step. How wonderful if every potential employer treated candidates this well and this way. It speaks to how well managed AltaML is as an organization.

I applied through an employee referral I interviewed at AltaML
The interview is at least a two to three stage process. It is rigorous and time bound. At the first, there is a interview with basic questions about the role, previous experiences that fit the role. This is followed by the creation of a presentation based on an assignment. This is followed by a presentation interview where the assignment presentation has to be explained. This is followed by another interview at the executive level, where fit with the company is determined.

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at AltaML (Toronto, ON) in Feb 2020
The interview process started with a phone screen interview by a current data science lead, who asked bunch of simple ML questions around cross validation, bias variance trade off etc. I was not contacted by any Human resource staff for the position. Post the screening round, I was handed over a simple take home assignment to solve and I gave my best attempt to submit the solution in less than 4 days and including some of the best models and with best performance, However, I never received any feedback/appreciation for the submission. After couple of weeks, the same data science lead sent me a mail stating they are not moving forward with my candidacy. I believe its an unprofessional approach to not include a Hr professional in the recruitment, The lady who conduced my interview seemed to have less knowledge and industry experience than myself and I strongly suspect the take home assignment was nothing more than a fishing effort to collect a set of code references from a number of candidates.
