Senior Engineering Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in Mill Valley, CA (US)
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through other source. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Mill Valley, CA (US)) in October 2019.

Interview

I was very much impressed with the interview process at Glassdoor, not long ago when interviewed the position of senior engineering manager. Especially the Glassdoor recruiter, who contacted me initially, and worked with me all the way from the first phone screen, to technical phone screen, to the on-site, and finally the offer stage. She really came in a position to help me better prepping for each interview. For example, I was informed ahead of time about who the interviewer was and the background of the interviewer. More importantly, I was also informed briefly about what areas of questions I could be asked and what other areas I shall be prepped for and etc. I felt the information I received is more than enough, and it is definitely way more than I would expect to know. This is extremely helpful and make me stayed comfortable throughout the interview process. I really highly recommend that.
Another major takeaway from the entire interview process is the transparency. Besides the prepping mentioned above, the feedback also came to me very quickly and constructively in a day or two. Though I had to wait longer than initially was told for receiving the final decision after my on-site, the recruiter keeps me updated on why and what other due diligences the interview team were up to. I had a feeling that the recruiter really came in to help me to land the job. I would describe this is quite unique experience of job hunting/interview I have ever had.

Interview Questions

  • For interviewing manager position, definitely keep your technical skills sharp. Do expect programming questions (to write code) and also architectural / technical design questions related to distributed computing. It could be quite open ended though. Moreover, I felt culture fit and team fit were major consideration as well. So try to prep for behavioral questions related to people/team management. Do express yourselves confidently.   Answer Question
