I applied online. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Guardian News & Media (London, England (UK)) in March 2015.
I applied online and they contacted me after a week to schedule a phone interview. I had a very friendly discussion with 2 of their employees. They asked me about my projects and basic oop questions. They also told me the dates of the assessment center in case I pass the interview and when I will hear back from them. In 2 weeks I got a mail that confirmed that I have passed to the next stage. I was invited to London. The only negative part for me was that they had only payed a small part my travel expenses (and I traveled from the other part of the continent). I decided to pay myself because I liked our phone discussion and felt like something good could come out of this. I wasn't disappointed. I had my assessment center in a Monday afternoon, I met the team, had some friendly talks, I had to code with one of the employees (you get to choose your programming language) and I had another interview about my past experience. Everybody was extremely nice and they exceeded my expectations. I got the offer the next day.

Two stage interview. First with the head of department and senior management team member plus HR representative. The second was opened to mid level management. The first was in a chaotic yet formal interview room setting, the second in a more relaxed, convival meeting room setting. Dress codes were varied, I wore a suit, they had cut off jeans and worn t-shirts!
I was able to negotiate with HR regard final salary.
