    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Glu.

    Interview

    Referred by a friend who works at the company. Their recruiter contacted me and sent me a small Unity project challenge to do. I finished in about 4 hours, it's not very complicated or involves hard algorithms to crack. Then got a call from their lead engineer. I thought it went smoothly but didn't get contacted since then.
