    I applied through other source. The process took 3 daysinterviewed 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

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Code and Theory (New York, NY) in December 2009.

    Interview

    The interview process began with a detailed email exchange, which moved on to a technical phone interview. Once I made it through the technical phone interview, I was asked to come to NYC and meet with the tech. director and a few others (a project manager, another developer) in person. The in-person interview lasted a few hours and was very comprehensive. I really enjoyed everyone I met with, and the company atmosphere and environment was pleasant and positive. Overall, I believe I would have enjoyed working with this team of people.
