    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at TransferWise.

    Interview

    I applied for a position in their New York office. The interview was in 3 steps:

    1. HR Screening: very enthusiastic, asked basic questions about passion and experience.
    2. Job Specific: with a FT employee in London in the same position. Asked proficiency questions about how to approach growth problems and basic SQL.
    3. Office Specific: with someone in the New York office. Determined office fit and mindset on marketing.
