    Interview

    Three interviews. First one has two general coding questions, listing all the prime numbers. Second one is about software design and computer network fundamentals like http, tcp protocols. There is a question like, what will happen when you click www.google.com and press enter. The third one is basically describe your project and explain your code on github.

    Interview Questions

    • For the question "when will happen when you click www.google.com and press enter", you are supposed to give a lot of details, like TCP, IP, HTTP, DNS, etc.   Answer Question

    Implementation Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at AppFolio (Santa Barbara, CA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    This was way back and the processes have changed. My interview was phone and skype video call. None of the questions stood out. Sort of white bread and standard. I got the impression they were looking for a happy, cheerleader type of personality, so I went with it and got the job. I'm sure that's changed by now. Just be good looking, perky and laugh a lot and you'll get the job.

    Negotiation

    None

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at AppFolio.

    Interview

    3 skype interviews managed by a 4th person each interview lasts an hour. different interviewers who did apparently not speak to each other about the previous interviews. sometimes redundant questions (such as can you name your most proud programming project). overall relaxed atmosphere this 50 words minimum is not helping, i guess

    Interview Questions

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at AppFolio (San Diego, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The recruiter contacted me and talked about the Engineering positions at AppFolio. I accepted to talk to their Director. The first round was a Technical Phone Screen. Then I had 3 onsite 1:1 interviews, then another onsite technical interview along with a team lunch. The final interview was with the VP of Engineering. Finally they made me an offer but it was less than what I make in my current job, so declined it.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at AppFolio in May 2010.

    Interview

    I was reached out to via a recruiter to see if I would be interested in moving to AppFolio from my current position. I met with the CFO, toured the facility and discussed the opportunity at hand. My experience was pretty casual and I wouldn't consider it a formal review.

    Interview Questions

    • How I could contribute to this new position incorporating my past experience to apply to this very different oppotunity   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    It was a big change in positions for me from my current employer at the time and I was very happy where I was. The offer was decent and the company looked like a really fun place to work. I wasn't motivated by it to move from where I wast though.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at AppFolio (Santa Barbara, CA).

    Interview

    First was your standard phone interview. Once you pass that stage you come in 1 day for a round of interviews with various department heads. What was cool about the interview was that it was like interviewing for multiple jobs at once. In meeting with the various directors (assuming they want to hire you) they try to put you on a team that lines up most with your interests.
