    Technical Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Glastonbury, CT

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at TopCoder in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    I really enjoyed the opportunity to meet the Topcoder team and learn more about the business. I truly believe Topcoder has a unique business that, in a few years, will be as commonplace as "outsourcing" is today. It's an exciting time to join an organization like Topcoder!

    The interview process was mostly very professional. I went through a recruiter; there was an initial phone interview and then a day of in-person interviews in Glastonbury. I met with three of the senior executive team as well as a Platform Manager and a Technical Account Manager. I was impressed with everyone that I met, and I thought the interview questions were well thought out.

    If I have to pick some negatives, the main one is that after my initial round of interviews, it took literally months for them to come back to me with an offer. Unfortunately the offer was below my salary requirement (and indeed, below what I had even discussed with them while I was there). I initially turned it down, but then some circumstances changed for me and I went back a month later, but the position had unfortunately been filled already.

    Interview Questions
    • All of the questions were pretty standard; they did a very thorough job of exploring my background.   Answer Question
