No Offer – Interviewed in San Francisco, CA Aug 2011 – Reviewed Sep 2, 2011
Interview Details –
It started with a Skype call with one of the founders, followed by a technical interview with the Sr. team member.
Next was a small project on Github for one week, the feedback was very good so they invited me onsite, precisely to meet the founder and 2 other team members.
I arrived onsite on the planned date and discovered that the founder who I should meet is away from office the whole week, also one of the 2 team members went on vacation the rest of the week.
The techinical interview was repeated all over again for no reason, so I worked on a small project *again* on Github for three days.
On the third day I had an introduction meeting with a guy from another team which turned suddenly into an "Architect interview" that was disappointing!
At the end of the forth day, the Sr. member who was available at office decided not to offer me a position.
