    Research Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Fitbit.

    Interview Details

    HR phone screening then Employee phone screening/interview. Unfortunately, I got rejected at that stage.

    For the employee interview, I think they are looking for very specific researchers because the employee (a research scientist or more senior position in the research group) asked me very detailed questions about one of my research projects. I worked on that project 5 years ago and didn't publish anything seriously. He basically wanted to know if one problem can be solved using my approach. I told him what I found was that problem must use other features in order to make a robust decision. I think that's not what he wanted. I could feel his attitude was different after that question. The interview ended shortly afterwards without the technical part mentioned at the beginning. This is kind of strange but I guess if I wouldn't be hired anyway, this saved my time.

    Interview Questions
    • Like I mentioned above, it was a specific question about an algorithm and the approach in general.   Answer Question
    No Offer
