    Software Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Twitter in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got a email two days later. They gave me a pre-interview survey and a coding assessment online. Then afterwards supposedly, is a phone interview followed by a on-site interview.

    I only got as far as the coding assessment. It was two algorithms you had to implement under an hour. Also, the assessment lets you use a language of your choice. I wonder what score I got, because I thought I didn't do too bad.

    Anyway, I would suggest practicing coding and algorithms beforehand.

    Interview Questions
    • Don't want to share the actual coding questions. But, you know how to work with arrays and basic data structures.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Applied through a referral, was contacted by a recruiter, and then completed two phone interviews. The process seemed very efficient for me and there was not a long turnaround time. I only interacted with people over the phone and they were courteous and nice, with the exception of one engineer interviewer who was sort of gruff.

    We had to answer a bunch of questions on a website as a way of screening candidates ahead of time. This was sort of annoying because it only really helped if you got the entire question correct in the given time

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Twitter in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    First round of interview is 15 minutes phone-screen interview with the recruiter. He/she only wants to make sure that you have sufficient experience for the role you are applying. Second round of interview is with the hiring manager. He asked a lot of technical-related questions, so make sure you know what you put in your resume.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Twitter.

    Interview Details

    The company recruiters communicated very nicely through phone calls and emails to set up the phone interview and explained detailed interview process. After the interview set up, the actual phone interviews all have some sort of online white board to facilitate the coding questions. The interview time periods are generally set up for forty five minutes. The interaction during the phone interview would vary depending on the interview persons. The job descriptions or required skills area may not asked during the interview process.

    Interview Questions
    • The phone interview questions are very general and philosophical questions. It's very hard to respond with the right answers.   View Answer
