    Developer Advocate/Evangelist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Couchbase.

    Interview Details

    One of the strangest interview experiences I ever had. I saw a job ad and applied online. The company responded very quickly and scheduled phone and Skype interviews within the next couple of weeks. The interviews went well and I was interested, but it was evident that some additional interviews should follow (they never actually assessed my technical skills, for example).
    And then silence. After a couple of weeks I got a phone call and the guy explained that the company was super busy and could not even say when and whether they would proceed with the interview process for at least three weeks. I just shrugged and said I'd be surprised if anyone would agree to wait for three weeks for really nothing. A month later they sent me an email and asked if I were ready for the next steps. Out of curiosity I replied "yes". And... silence again. Another month passed and they finally asked me to schedule one more phone interview, but this time I had no curiosity left and just said "no, thanks".

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Couchbase in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Met an employee at a NoSQL conference in San Jose, CA
    Emailed employee a couple of times before I received a reply then later an email from recruiting.
    Recruiting scheduled a phone screen the following week. So far so good.
    The recruiter began by explaining the role then went on to ask me about how I came into the IT career
    track. No questions were asked to see if I could do the job but mostly personal stuff.
    I did not feel at all comfortable with her apparent lack of experience in conducting phone interview.

    Interview Questions
    • What is your salary? I was taken aback with discussion of money in the first interview.
      I asked for the range of position and recruiter told me she and the new manager didn't know
      but would find out for me by the following week. She never did.
