    Interview

    Recruiter reached out to me for initial call. Then spoke to the hiring manager on the phone. She scheduled me to meet her team a week later. I actually never met the hiring manager. The team was very nice, no unexpected questions. They were just looking for a mutual fit. Got the vibe they already knew who they were hiring but they needed to bring in external candidates.
