    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at AppFolio in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online for the Software Engineer Intern position and within approximately a week I had a initial phone screen with a member of the HR team. She was very kind and after that she set me up with a one hour technical phone interview with a senior member of the engineering team. The technical phone interview lasted about 40 minutes and covered questions on my background as well as questions relating to sorting, data management, and object-oriented programming. I was rejected at the end of the technical interview, but the interviewer was very nice about it.

    Software QA Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Barbara, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at AppFolio in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    They had about 6 to 7 rounds of interviews.

    The first one was with the VP of Engineering. He is a nice guy, really smart (according to me). He asked me a lot of Automation & Design Questions from my previous organization projects.

    Then the Director of Software Engineering interviewed me, he was very knowledgeable. He asked about all the tools I had used. The questions were simple about OOPS, DataStructures. Not really tough questions.

    Then I was interviewed by an Engineer, he asked me a puzzle - if there were 15 horses, and if you could race 3 at a time. Whats the minimum number of races that is required to determine the top three horses. He then asked me to generalize this problem for any number of horses. Then a python code for the same to finish it off.

    Then the QA Director, asked me a bunch of questions mainly on product. They explained their product clearly. After that they asked me a bunch of QA Questions mostly related to Sprint Planning, Agile Process, Regression Tests, etc. If you are in QA for a long time - this should be easy for you.

    All the interviewers were nice, they try to help you to think - once they have asked their question.

    NOTE : if you donot know something, say you dont know !! They appreciate it. In my case I was not good in JScript & Ruby - I told them and they liked it.

    They start off offering you a very little package.

    You can easily demand more than what they offer - if you feel you deserve it. They will try their best to match it.
