    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at DigitalOcean.

    Interview

    I had remote video chats with a couple folks in the department before being given the choice of an all-day onsite interview or a series of rapid-fire remote interviews. I chose the onsite option, because I wanted to meet some of my potential coworkers + get a sense of the office culture.

    There was also a take-home project which took me about 5-6 hours. It was a fun, challenging process, and I thought it was a good way to get a sense of my skills.

    The onsite interview involved a few different things: Going over my take-home project and explaining the technical choices I made, speaking with a back-end engineer to learn more about full-stack collaboration (I was interviewing for a front-end position), speaking with a designer to learn about product-engineering collaboration.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions were around working style, past experiences, and trying to establish if we'd work cohesively.   Answer Question
