    I have been working at Hootsuite full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting work and opportunities for growth. Lots of in house courses that are very well design to develop soft-skills. Great people in the company, lots of events, very supportive team.

    Cons

    Rapidly changing. This can be good, but it creates some uncertainty at times.

    Advice to Management

    Innovation is one side of the coin. Focus some energy on improving usability and product workflows.

    Senior Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Vancouver, BC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Hootsuite (Vancouver, BC) in October-2017.

    Interview

    Hootsuite HR called and described the roll they'd like to hire me for. After a short discussion about the role, an informal meeting was scheduled with a manager I'd be working with.

    During this meeting, we cover my work experience, the projects I'd be working on, and generally geeking out on technologies as he was a former programmer himself. I believe it was a chance to make sure both of us would get along working together.

    A former interview was scheduled by HR right away. It was three hours long divided into three parts with three different groups of people. Compared to the interviews I gave to potential hires in the past, it was relatively straightforward and easy. Everyone was very friendly and professional throughout the process,

    An offer came the very next day but I had multiple offers so after couple days of negotiating, I accepted the offer. My schedule dragged the process out couple weeks but if it wasn't for me everything would have taken a few days from start to finish.

    Interview Questions

    • First hour involved simple programming questions that can be solved with vanilla data structures.
      Second hour involved scalability questions. Depending on your work experience, this may be walk in the park or very difficult.
      Third part was with HR. This is likely the personality test portion of the interview. Either way they were all very standard questions.   Answer Question
