I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Resonate Insights in September 2013.
Interview Details – There were 4 interviews , 2 phone interviews, and 2 face to face interviews. Resonate is a very innovative company, with some very smart people working for them.
The fist one was a phone interview with their HR/recruiter. The second one was a phone interview with the hiring manager. The third one was a face to face interview with the executive managers. In this interview, they were basically interested in understanding what kind of work I have done and how I have solved the problems. The last interview was with the engineers, and the engineers basically went into how I would solve a problem that they have faced. They have some unique problems that they have solved in innovative ways
I had no complaint about the overall interviewing process except that they were a bit unprofessional. First, someone modified my resume and put notes in there before sending it to the executive management. That would have been fine if the notes were clearly distinguishable from the resume. The problem was that the managers thought that the notes were part of my resume. So, I was getting comments like "You have incorrect grammar in your resume", and they even read out "Introduced XXX and YYY technologies. Not super innovative" "Why did you write not super innovative in your own resume?" Secondly, my employer found out that I was interviewing here 2 days after I went for the first face to face interview. I had to face an embarrassing situation at work
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Resonate Insights in September 2011.
Interview Details – There was one interview, with a written coding test. It only took 1 hour, with 2 random, computer science questions.
I was interviewed by 2 engineers and the VP of engineering, and was asked to whiteboard out solutions to the problems. Know your CS subjects well. As an employee/interviewer, we had a high rejection rate and were very selective of new candidates.
