Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at OkCupid in January 2013.

Interview Details – Submitted their online test, then had a phone interview where I coded some solutions on google docs while talking to another engineer. Then was flown to NYC and given a hotel stay at Ace hotel, which was amazing. Their recruiting process definitely top notch, it was a pleasure speaking to them and they were very accommodating.

When I arrived for the interview, I talked to 2 pairs of 2 developers, seemed to be someone that had been there a long time and someone that had been there a shorter time in each group.

They have a custom brewed webserver and their way of solving scalability is definitely unique. I personally feel like the entire site is simple and could be written in a month or two by a few engineers, but I think their progress on new features is probably slowed by the complexity of their environment. They had an entire floor in their building in Manhattan and what looked like quite a few engineers. My programming prowess on the sample technical questions while in office didn't impress them, but had they given me the task of writing a new feature for their site while I was there, it probably would have.

Most of their developers come from ivy league schools, they said that is where they do their recruiting.

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer

I applied online and interviewed at OkCupid.

Interview Details – The guy seemed nice that interviewed me over the phone. The questions were standard for someone coming out of college, but I wasn't exactly ready for it, so I faltered. They were very respectful overall, and I honestly regard them as a pretty cool company. Maybe one day I will reapply
