Analytics Engineer Interview

Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Kixeye.

Interview Details

First I was contacted by a recruiter (obviously). After discussing what KIXEYE has available, I interviewed for an Analytics Engineering position.

The first step with them was a coding challenge. You're emailed a problem and given 24 hours to complete it (it's a non-trivial program you have to write, make sure you pick a good time).

After that, I talked with the team lead and architect in a phone interview to get a good idea of the culture of the team. It was pretty non-technical (since I'd just written a full program for them I suppose).

Afterwards, there was an on-site interview with most of the team and the director. This was also pretty non-technical. There was almost no code writing. Most technical questions were of the general algorithms kind (e.g. binary search, sorting, trees). I spent a good amount of time just talking about video games and other hobbies we shared.

Overall, I found the interview process to be extremely easy. However, I just happened to have the *exact* skillset they were looking for at the time.

Negotiation Details
KIXEYE will low-ball you. Don't accept it. Be sure the check the average salary for your position and demand that. The initial stock vesting schedule was also absurdly long.
