    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Linode.

    Interview

    Initial phone screening with a manager. Next, a HackerRank consisting of open ended tech support tickets and how you would interact with the customer via email. Finally, an in-person interview with your potential team at the Linode HQ in Old City. A thorough, yet thoughtful process. There was a great mix of questions regarding my competency to perform in the role, while simultaneously getting to know me as a person.

    Interview Questions

    • Some basic linux command line and networking questions to get a feel for your tech knowledge. This line of questioning was used to assess your abilities, not to prevent you from getting the job. Thorough training is available after accepting an offer.   Answer Question
