I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at simplehuman in January 2013.
Interview Details –
Interview process consisted of 3 1:1 interviews lasting about 45 min each: HR, the engineering director, and lead engineer. The engineering director was kind, energetic and informative about the company. His questions were designed to measure your spontaneous creative thinking, by walking through a product (of your choosing) from concept, to describing how you would handle various design challenges.
There is an overall small-company/start-up feeling with the lack of decor and mismatching furniture. Did not get to tour the lab or assembly area where product development was taking place, so cannot comment on the work environment or lab equipment.
Your feedback has been sent to the team and we'll look into it.
The difficulty rating is the average interview difficulty rating across all interview candidates.
