    Devops Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Rue La La in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was introduced to the company via an employee referral about 3 weeks ago and received feedback yesterday. I spoke to the internal recruiter within a few days and the hiring manager a few days after that. Within two weeks of the initial contact, I had a face-to-face interview in Boston.

    It was a long day, but I met with six technical people and the recruiter twice - at the beginning and the end of the interview. Each technical interview had a stated goal, whether vetting me on Linux commands, DevOps methodology or Puppet syntax. The workplace was an attractive exposed brick warehouse converted to office space, and the location a short walk from South Station.

    I sensed that the role was more "code-centric" than my own experience, so while I felt it was a positive experience, I had a feeling that I hadn't hit a home run. Six days later, the recruiter contacted me with detailed feedback, which was very much appreciated.

    I may not have accepted the role if offered, but Rue did everything right during the process.

    Interview Questions
    • Two different interviewers gave me a problem that involved coming up with some object-oriented code (or, in my case, pseudo-code), and I clearly struggled. Both helped me out along the way, and ultimately I was able to come up with a solution, but it was obvious that code was not my forte.   Answer Question
    No Offer
