    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Codexis (Redwood City, CA) in October 2014.

    There was an interview schedule which consisting of four interviewers which lasted about 30 minutes each. The meeting will begin with the HR personnel, then employees ranging in position of management: the Senior Director, two Scientists and the Research Associate.

    Most questions were focused on past relevant work experiences and some questions probing for knowledge of protein kinetics.
