Software Engineer - Front End Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Tapjoy in June 2012.
I would like to start by mentioning that I have not received an offer but the system forces you to choose something and I didn't want to choose something (like Did accept offer) and sound as if their wasn't good and just not be fair to Tapjoy.
A recruiter from the Tapjoy team reached out to me via LinkedIn offering to have a chat to see if I'd be interested in learning more about the company and possibly join the team if we found that there was mutual interest. The recruiter was very professional, friendly, a good listener, and not one of those HR robots. After our 45 minute conversation that took place on a Saturday (he was very accommodating to my schedule, I'm very much thankful to him) it was clear to me that he knew what he was looking for, and he immediately suggested putting a panel together and asked for my permission to schedule for an onsite meeting. The onsite visit was scheduled to be after a three days after we spoke. The night before the interview I got sick, and so the next morning I requested to reschedule and they kindly accepted and they sure did follow up to make sure I was feeling better (that's got to tell you something about the people there).
Yes, I didn't give out any of the question I was asked and I'll keep them as a surprise for you. But the questions weren't ridiculously hard, they just wanted to see how you think and were very friendly. I think that the interviewing process tells you a lot about the culture of company, and I can tell you that it has been a very pleasant one till this point with Tapjoy. You can always find hard questions to ask people and only hire the ones who answer them, but in reality building teams is much more than that.
One last thing! You may have read some negative reviews, and frankly that made me skeptical about even interviewing with the company. People have different experiences and have the right to write what they want; however, my advice (take it or leave it) is to be fair to the company and listen to what the other side might have to say.
Best of luck to you!
PS: Please excuse any typos as I wrote this and didn't bulletproof it.
- Write a function that randomly selects item from a list. This is was just the first phase before you have to build more on top of the question. View Answer
