    JIRA Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at AppDynamics (Dallas, TX) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process was very fast and informative! Everyone I talked to was extremely friendly and courteous. Recruiter was transparent and informed on what the company was looking for, and definitely sold the companies culture and benefits well. Even as a candidate, I felt like everyone I spoke with appreciated my skill sets and was interested in ME, and I did not feel like I was running the gauntlet to complete for their attention.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at AppDynamics (San Francisco, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process was very focused and informative. Within 24 hours after my phone screen I had in-person interviews with six individuals on the recruiting team who were all very prepared for the conversation. A good mixture of interview questions, information on the company and role, and opportunity for me to ask questions. The recruiting organization seems to have a clear idea of what they are after from prospective employees which was very helpful.

    Technical Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at AppDynamics (San Francisco, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The process spanned over the course of two months, but that was because of me and the holidays - but it was honestly a pretty painless process. The hiring managers were very transparent with me throughout the whole process, and were easy to work with my hectic schedule. I was a pretty passive candidate, but once I met my team in the onsite interview - I knew this was the place I wanted to work. Once they decided they liked me, they gave me feedback they were getting an offer together and in a week's time - I was offered the position. I started a week later and the onboarding has been awesome! Everyone's super friendly here and I have found friends in our CEO and CTO, which is great.

    Interview Questions

    • It was mostly to get to know me, my experience, and how I effectively get candidates interested in a company. We spoke on many different roles, what tools I utilize, and my understanding of technology.   Answer Question

    Interview

    I had a quick phone and skype interview with their hiring manager and was brought in for an interview a week after. It was a panel interview and everyone was extremely pleasant to talk too. In fact, it even felt that they were rooting for me to get the job. Unfortunately, I did not get the job since there were more qualified candidates but it was an overall great experience.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AppDynamics (San Francisco, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I had a brief chat with the recruiter about the role and the interview process. The recruiter gave me a clear idea about the role,expectation and the interview process. Following this, I took up two telephonic interviews. Both were technical. Questions were asked from a variety of topics including Problem Solving, Algorithms, Java, and Databases. The questions themselves were not very difficult but one should have good understanding of these topics.
    Based on the feedback from the telephonic interview, I was asked to attend onsite interview. There were four technical onsite interviews. Each one of the interviews was different from that of other.

    Interview Questions

    • Some of the topics that were tested in the interview were as follow:
      1.Data Structures and algorithms.
      2. Java/J.2.E.E. questions.
