Tuenti Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Mobile Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Tuenti in December 2010.
Interview Details – Long selection process that included a code exam, several technical interviews by phone, and finally an on site interview with 3 or 4 engineers and HR. In my honest opinion, the overall process is funny, but some questions could be difficult, specially if you are not used to work under pressure.
Interview Question – Nothing special ... They are open to discuss and resolve any doubt that you could have during the interview. Answer Question
Product Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Tuenti in May 2013.
Interview Details – Good process overall. I sent in my cv and was contacted by HR within a couple of days. Had an initial HR interview then scheduled a telephone interview with another product manager. I got feedback on this the next day and told I would have another in a couple of days. Again I passed this and was setup with a third telephone interview with another product manager. This one I found more difficult. I then didn't hear anything back for a week or so when I was told they wouldn't be proceeding with my application.

PHP Developer Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Tuenti in August 2009.
Interview Details – There were three interviews, we had two interviews by phone, and the last one was a face-to-face interview.
After the first phone interview I had to write a code test, it was a ticket sorter API. They outlined the BIG-O-NOTATION, and the reusability of the code(OO preferred :-) ).
The code test had to be completed within 2 hours.
The last step was the face-to-face interview, of course in Madrid, where I met 5-6 people of Tuenti. The whole morning was taken up by
interviews. The first one was a personal interview including a detailed description of the company and bonus benefits and so on.
In the second and third they tried to highlight my technical skills and experiences. Both tech questions and IQ questions were asked.
Very Easy Interview
General Engineer Interview (Negative Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 7+ weeks - interviewed at Tuenti in September 2009.
After that got a buch of skype interviews. Most of them rushed as the interviewer looked like he wanted to be done asap. One of the founder asked me one stock problem solving question.
After the phone interviews, they called me back and said they wanted me there asap, ideally to next week. i took one weak leave for the next week to go there, and they simply vanished.
some weeks later I got an email saying i was not a fit.
