    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Code and Theory in April 2011.

    Interview

    Pretty basic interview questions. I do feel some senior members were up tight and tried to prove that there method was the right way. When asking about the typical day, they seem to try and prepare you for a lot of late nights and weekends.

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Code and Theory (New York, NY) in August 2013.

    The Partners, Founders and everyone I met with was very thorough and had great questions. Everyone was open, honest and prepared to answer any question I had, regardless of the difficulty. I was hired to start the recruitment division so my process was different than what people might experience now. The current recruitment team is excellent, responsive and give feedback regardless of the interview outcome. An overall great experience.

    Web Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    There was a fairly technical phone screen, and a partly technical, partly behavioral interview with two senior level developers. The senior developers all knew their stuff and were very personable. They diversified the process by throwing in a one-on-one with a member from a different department, so it gave some insight into how the company worked and the people worked together.

    Interview Questions

    • Good question, but it was mostly behavioral and testing for cultural fit once I got past the phone screen.   Answer Question
