    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at StumbleUpon in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had two phone screens, one on-site and one code challenge. The entire process took only a week and half, very simple. On-site interview was with various people that include developers and product managers. Code challenge assignment was straight-forward as well. The in-house recruiter was very responsive. Everyone I spoke to was very professional and friendly.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at StumbleUpon in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    Went through the interview process, it was a waste of time and no feedback which shows they don't value my time or their own.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at StumbleUpon in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    They set me up on a phone screen with someone who was socially inept. The person didn't even say hi or introduce themselves. They immediately started asking questions. Their accent was very difficult to understand through the phone. They were hostile throughout the interview. I could tell they didn't want to be conducting the interview. Basically, I was setup to fail. It was like talking to a computer that didn't want to talk to me.

    If this person is representative of the engineers at StumbleUpon, then I can only imagine how awkward and tense the social atmosphere must be.
