    Interview

    After applying online, it was a few weeks before I received a Hackerrank. There were 3 easy level questions where you have plenty of time to solve them (90 mins). After the Hackerrank you get a shor HR phone screening. The interviewer on the phone seemed to be in a rush/ didn't seem to have time for the interview.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Alarm.com (Denver, CO) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Applied online, had a phone call with a recruiter, did three hackerrank challenges, and then was offered to fly out to their Denver, CO office. Overall the process took two weeks and the recruiter was very responsive in timing. The on-site interviews were 4 45-min interviews, with lunch in between. Each interview was a mix of behavioral and technical, containing white boarding questions, coding on a laptop, OO questions, or general technical coding questions.

    Overall the process was very smooth, and every single question they asked was fair with my knowledge of the Software Engineering field. Everyone I talked to was very knowledgeable in their field and super nice.

    Interview Questions

    • An interviewer had me clone a repo he made, and fix three front-end/back-end bugs in front of him. It was more of a collaboration interview rather than just coding.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Alarm.com in January 2020.

    Interview

    There was a phone interview first where they asked behavioral questions which was very easy and they immediately scheduled for an In-person Interview for next week. It was in Bloomington MN. There were 3 Interviewers in the Panel and they were very friendly. They asked similar behavioral questions and then they asked a few troubleshooting questions with some sample calls. They also gave me an Ipad and was asked to resolve an issue with the help of their knowledge base. Finally there was a logical puzzle which I had to solve. The Interview lasted about an hour. It was an easy Interview but I'm not sure who they are exactly looking for. After 2 weeks I received an email that they ended up moving forward with another Candidate.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Alarm.com (Centennial, CO) in December 2019.

    Interview

    The interview process was a simple phone screening, then over one visit to their office several in person interviews. I interviewed with 5 people that day. It was a lot. At the end of the day I was exhausted. They took me out to lunch for a lunch interview, which was great! The company's culture is awesome, so it is easy to feel relaxed with them. The interviews were moderately challenging. Overall, I would recommend interviewing and working at Alarm.com!
