    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Fitbit.

    Interview

    I interviewed through a university co-op program. I was interviewed by two people from different locations, then sent a coding challenge through email and given a week to complete on my own time. There was no technical portion in the in-person interview; the talking centred around my previous projects/experience as well as the company's new device. The take-home challenge involved implementing a non-binary tree in C with appropriate searching methods for nodes via a numerical ID and string name. I was contacted about three weeks later with an offer!
