Following That was conversation with another product manager and some follow up questions on my case study. Then on-campus interview with 5 people.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Addepar in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online, received an email from a recruiter a month and a half later thanking me for applying for a job that I didn't apply for. Soon after another email followed with the correct job I had applied for to set up an interview. The sloppiness of the recruiter was a pretty big red flag but I scheduled an interview anyway. I had a 45 minute interview with two junior employees which I thought was odd. They called on time and I had a good interview, we talked through my experience and work and at the conclusion of the interview I was invited to fly out for a product demo and to interview with the senior staff and told they would have the recruiter coordinate. A week and a half later I received a genetic rejection email, I inquired as to whether this was correct but received no response. Besides the blatant lack of professional respect Addepar exhibited they seem to not really have it together, I don't think I would have accepted an offer had they made one given that and the reputation of low salaries. I think this is a company good for entry level workers fresh out of school but that a experienced professional would gain more elsewhere.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Addepar.

    Interview

    Pretty standard process ... couple of pre-screens and then flew me out to Mountain View. 5-6 interviews (1 was write code on a laptop, 1 was debug code on a laptop, 1 systems design, and 2-3 standard algo questions on a whiteboard). Super smart team. Feedback was super quick (less than 1-2 day turnaround at every stage). Interview difficulty was probably a notch harder than Facebook, Palantir, etc ... (but absolutely no trick questions -- standard stuff any software engineer should know).

    Interview Questions

    • Same 5-6 concepts tested in every software engineering interview.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Can't discuss numbers but let's just say I had offers from several tier-1 public ($100BB+) tech companies, and Addepar beat on both cash and equity components. Offers are non-negotiable (basically they make a fair offer to start rather than playing the stupid game of coming 25% under and then playing chicken). They're also very understanding with giving you time (within reason) to make a descision (unlike 99% of tech companies who want an answer yesterday).

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Addepar (Mountain View, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was somewhat formal, with two 1:1 interviews and an onsite visit. Staff was extremely nice and professional. I had the impression all interviewers were very good, friendly and very well prepared. The image I got is of a very good place to work. During the onsite I got the feeling of a kind of start-up culture : the atmosphere over there is fantastic.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Addepar (Mountain View, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online, and was quickly contacted by a recruiter. There were two rounds of phone interviews followed by a full day of on-site interviews at their Mountain View office. The on-site interviews consisted of two algorithms / general math puzzles interviews, one coding interview (coding on an actual machine under supervision), and a system design interview. I got the offer within a week of interviewing. Turn-around time was extremely fast, and the recruiter was extremely helpful and prompt. I immensely enjoyed interviewing at Addepar. They have some extremely bright and enthusiastic people working for them, and the office looked like a fun and happy place to work at. I can only see bright things in their future.

I mess up with the series on the first question, nail the first easy part of second question and give a try one the later, not sure it's good enough for them.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Addepar (Mountain View, CA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    First a phone screen, few days after another phone screen. Recruiter was fast in scheduling, than a quick follow up for an on site - 5 hour 1:1 interview. Didn't get the schedule until the day prior. Went in very excited, left feeling like people were worn out and overworked. My sense was of a tense organization, even though the perks sounded really great. Got a canned email response from a recruiter as to why no offer.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Addepar.

    Interview

    Process was good overall, they really cared about financial investment knowledge/background for this role, which i didn't really anticipate based on job description, so wasn't really prepared to answer. Everyone was pretty clear and logical that i talked to, was a pretty easy flowing conversation. Phone interview was 30 minutes. Asked about experience working with large data sets for data integration responsibilities, and my technical background, but overall it's not clear how much tech skills really matter -- financial back ground really seemed paramount.
