    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Hightail (Campbell, CA).

    Interview

    This is really a great company, it's a hidden gem in Silicon Valley. The technology is new and relevant. The people that work there are smart and friendly. It's profitable. Exec management seems to know how to manage money, instead of accumulating mountains of debt/VC money and spending it on advertising, they're more careful about how they spend. The perks are great... free drinks (beyond soda), and snacks. Nice yuppi location if you have a family. Other perks. Also, it's a fairly engineering-driven company... the PM said "Everybody is a PM here" ... meaning everybody influences the products' direction.

    Interview Questions

    • They basically asked "google interview" questions... code an algorithm on the white board. They also asked Qs about cultural fit, how to make the product better, etc.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Hightail (Campbell, CA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Applied for an internship online in June 2013 - I heard back within a week. The interview process was straightforward. A phone screen with an HR representative, then a phone screen with an Engineer on the team. A few days later they asked me to come to the company headquarters in Campbell for an on-site interview. I had 5 interviews. The first lasted about 15 minutes and was with the Director of Product, this was mostly questions about company fit. The next two interviews were technical, each lasting about 30-45 minutes. The questions were straightforward, some recursion questions, linked-list questions, and for-loop modulus questions. The fourth interview was over lunch with an engineer, and was a good chance to ask questions and hear honest feedback. Last meeting was with the Mobile Team Lead, no technical questions. I was called and offered the position later that day. Good experience overall.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hightail (Campbell, CA) in November 2010.

    Interview

    Phone interview, then face to face with three individuals, the hiring manager, then a technical interview and finally a peer interview. The hiring manager wanted to explain the job, the technical interview was gauging the depth of the candidates technical skill set, and the peer interview was more of a cultural fit
