    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Backbase (Toronto, ON) in October 2020.

    Interview

    It was nice experience.
    1. First HR called me and explained the steps of the whole interview process and asked about expectations etc.
    2. Complete a coding task.
    3. Technical Interview with the lead Engineer. He asked some technical questions and more questions about the coding task. Asked me to fix a bug in the sample project created above.
    4. DNA test- interview with the Project Manager, He asked about expectations and explained company culture etc.
    Overall its not a difficult interview.
