    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Yodle.

    Interview Details

    Solved the harder problem from their website, got a call in a couple of days
    First was a minor tech screening with their HR recruiter who was courteous and knowledgeable. Discussed about experience and some easy datastructure questions.
    Second was a phone interview with one of their engineering manager. Asked about some project experience picked from my resume. Further on a question to design a small system with OOP. Requirements were clarified beforehand. Interview was nice and simple but I think the time frame was not big enough for me to design the system. Interviewer was very patient and we had a good interaction.

    Solved the harder problem on their website, and got an email back within a few days. First interview was not difficult. Asked about basic data structures and object oriented design. Second phone interview focused more on detailed object oriented design questions, and some "how would you approach this problem" type questions, and data structure questions. Received email saying they weren't interested a few days later.

    Director - Online Acquisition Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Yodle in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Contacted Recruiter as I was already connected with her on Linkedin. First round of the interview was from her. She was nice, but asked very specific questions around Predictive Modeling, team management , why I am looking for a change and what I am currently making (that was the problem). I work for a much bigger company and Yodle pay muss less.
       After the first step, she passed my resume to a VP, who wanted to talk with me for 1 hr. It was a good conversation, asked me about my work, online space, team management skills and very pointed questions about how I solve problems. Why I am looking to move to NY (they are located in NY).
       Next round of the interview was with another director - Biz Dev. He was nice too and he asked me questions about how I did cross-functional projects and how I managed teams. It was a good conversation and I would rate it fair.
       A week later, VP with whom I spoke initially wanted to talk with me again. It was another 1 hr conversation around the space, much more details into the projects I did. It was a very good conversation, around the work that I would be doing and how I would be solving problems at Yodle. They are in local and so she asked me about how I would solve the problems in that space. Since I work in digital space and in the forefront, I explained her about many areas, which she didn't know.
      After that interview, they called me for in-person interview. I had almost 6 - 7 folks interviewing me - including CEO and CMO and 3 VPs. The questions were all over the place - some are very behavioral to very technical questions. I was shocked to hear very technical granular questions from a CEO, including my current salary. I would not expect a CEO asking these silly questions, though its a start up.
       The part which I didn't like was - there was no lunch break - I had literally < 15 mins - the recruiter comes and says - "there is a sandwich shop downstairs, you can grab something there" and "By the way, you have 10 - 15 mins". I said - "Thank you", but was annoyed because I already had a very long day (I took 6:00am flight).
        As the day progressed, the interviewers were the folks from my team. In one interview, a guy comes and asks me a probability question - a complete maths question. I was clearly annoyed by this time - I would expect an analyst to answer a question, but not a senior level person to solve a math question. Of course, I solved the question, but was disappointed with the interviewer and his outlook.
       My last interview was with same VP (I spoke 3 times with that person until now) - my hiring manager, but clearly told her that I am not impressed that the previous interviewer asked me a mathematical question and that I am not interviewing for an analyst role. She apologized, but said that everyone liked me and so I should be good.
      After I return back, I hear back from the recruiter and that they are very interested in me and that I have to speak with another VP over the phone. This was a very weird interview, because he was the first guy in my career who blew his horn so much (I felt sorry that he had to do it for what he does), but had a good interview.
      At last after 2 weeks, I hear that they are moving with another candidate. In the hind sight, after my experience in the interview process, I would not have accepted the offer - partially because of the lack of big picture of CEO. When I asked him about the growth of the company and how he sees the space, he was very less impressive with his answers, but had a very vague answer. Another thing that caught my eye - was how many folks work there and the $$ revenues of the company. $/Head ratio is very less. So, I am concerned about the post-IPO valuation also. The revenues are not growing at the speed I would expect for a start up.

    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Yodle.

    Interview Details

    Was found on LinkedIn by inhouse recruiter. Handful of interactions led to a 1 hour screening call. The inhouse recruiter was excellent and came from recruiting, but the internal processes with the executives scheduling the live interview was difficult. I finally interviewed with two members of the executive team. The third executive blew off my interview while I was at the site, which was very unprofessional.

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Yodle in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. They gave an option of two coding problems to solve. I chose the more difficult one and submitted my resume with my solution. I was contacted the next day and they set up a phone interview. Be advised that the first phone interview will also contain the tech screen. So it will start off with the standard discussion of your background. Then, you are asked some basic tech questions (can you implement a map function with an array?). The entire call took about a half hour.

Typical interview questions and very short interview. Wasn't too interested in a cold calling position so did not follow up after interview. I received an email about 2 weeks later saying they were moving forward with other candidates.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Yodle in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got my resume to the top of the stack by solving programming problems they have posted on their website.
    Interviewer called me soon after for interview.

    Asked me some pretty basic stuff, but then asked me if I was "ready" to move to Manhattan. He seemed fixated on the fact that since I had never lived in the area before, that I wasn't educated enough (in terms of the area) to really move there and said I needed to do more research. He seemed to concentrate more on that than the technical questions, which were mostly easy.

    Interview did not call back after that.
