Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Rakuten Kobo (Toronto, ON) in May 2021

Interview

First step was an email to schedule interview. The email stated you can use your cellphone to join the call, so I was under impression that it will be oral question answer, but it was actually a coding interview. The interview was with 2 senior developers. They asked me about my current work and previous experience. Then they gave me 2 question to code in react while sharing my screen, without using any resources. It was not that hard but I did terrible in it, not sure why. I would give interview again if I get a chance.

Interview Questions
  • Fix a timer that was broken
  • Edit a code to count occurrence of char in string.

There was first a phone screen. Then my recruiter went on vacation and I got handed off to someone else. After about a bit less than 2 weeks I was booked for an on-site interview. During the on-site, the interviewer first talked a little about the position, then asked questions about my CV. Talked about the tech stack. And then asked some cultural fit questions. It was a one on one interview.
