    I have been working at Evernote (less than an year)


    I really loved working for Evernote. I was on the Web Team and they were a fun goofy bunch. They may programming fun. They are not only close in the office but best friends outside of the company which really keeps communication honest and transparent. Also I really appreciated the Transparency of the entire company. They had weekly all-hands meetings and the CEO gave some insightful knowledge that was happening inside the company and outside the company. The engineers work extremely close with their designers and I absolutely loved that.


    There were quite a few sudden change in management because things were falling behind schedule at times. That kept it hard to adjust in terms of directions because one minute you're working under one branch and the next you're working for a combined or hybrid branch. It's not the worst thing in the world but it is something to be aware of in a quick small start up environment.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Evernote.

    Interview Details

    There were about 5 rounds. 3 of those rounds were behavioral calls from different people. The other two were technical. But in order to get those interviews, I had to first complete a coding challenge within a week. Once I passed all of those tests and interviews, I was given an internship offer over the phone and shortly after via email after a month long process.

    Interview Questions
    • The coding challenge was fairly difficult. It was to return the word with the highest count from a given text in O(n).   Answer Question
