    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at iRobot.

    Interview Details

    The process was very thorough, professional and informative. I was originally contacted by an in-house recruiter who conducted a first phone screen and remained the main point of contact throughout. She was one of the most intelligent and helpful recruiters I have dealt with. Then there was an onsite interview with the hiring manager, and then I was invited for the full interview day in which i spoke to 7-8 researchers. They were all very friendly and intelligent and open about answering my questions about the company.
