    Interview

    Interview process was fast.
    Applied via their careers page and automatically got a response to take a coding test. After 2 days of waiting I got an email to have a phone interview the following day. This led to a final 2-part interview (technical then HR/behavioral) one week later. Got the offer 4 days after.
