This manager of this company is a graduate from UCSB, so if you are a student from UCSB and looking for jobs, you'd better have a try. I have experience three rounds of interviews, including a telephone interview and two on-site interviews.

They were nice on the phone. I got a call within a few weeks of submitting an application. They are a small startup that is looking to grow their business and want to have entry level people to help them grow.

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.
- 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

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AppFolio (Dallas, TX) in October 2014.
Pathetic process as they build you up to come in - they tell you your history and background are a perfect fit - as you come in your greeted by a sales room and then interviews by 2 managers who seem either brand new to interviewing or just not used to dealing with people (kinda scary that they are the sales managers). The questions are actually decent but interview seems to be somewhat of a joke to them - After the interview if your not hired they will not give you feedback or respond to your request for follow up (think about the customer or PROSPECT who seems soooo interested then suddenly its like they died and you never hear from them again) probably (other than multiview ) the rudest company Ive ever dealt with in my life . - if you are actually a killer at inside sales you may be better off applying somewhere else as it seems that they like to hire low ballers and bottom of the barrell sales reps (I know some of them)... my guess (and I mean GUESS because I cant get a response) the management doesnt like hiring anyone that threatens their job. And YES I am very offended !

I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at AppFolio (Santa Barbara, CA) in June 2015.
Appfolio was very flexible when scheduling the interview time and the interviewer was very nice. First impressions: young company, open office space, very limited parking at Castillian location, they mentioned lots of overtime would be required so work-life balance would be skewed towards work, probably good work experience as they just went public

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at AppFolio (Santa Barbara, CA) in June 2015.
3 steps, talked with 2 HR and the director of engineering. They were very friendly, definitly seemed to be a very good company. The 3rd person showed me the office, which I thought very nice of him. Definitly is a place that I would like to work.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at AppFolio.
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
- nothing out of the box. some programming questions, recursive, then the same problem iterative, questions about my computer science background, different languages that i used and why etc. friendly ppl Answer Question
