    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at DraftKings (Toronto, ON).

    Interview

    Got on the phone with recruiter and had a brief overview of experience and what work is like at DraftKings as well as the products offered. Then proceeded to the code interview. I had to reschedule once due to meeting and was happy it wasn't a hassle. I did ok but definitely had room for improvement. Wasn't selected to move forward due to competitiveness of current candidates which was understandable. I see a lot of people raging in here but you have to understand the company is hard on the interview because it sees technology as a real competitive advantage rather than seat warmers. Working at seat warmer companies suck so hold onto that conviction learn and keep trying.
