    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at AppFolio in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was on GoToMeeting. It was almost like any other interview. Started with few Java concepts - collections, interfaces, Garbage collection. Then next a programming question was asked. Any programing language is fine. Some follow up question and few more technical questions pertaining to the projects on resume.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at AppFolio (Goleta, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I was initially contacted by their corporate recruiter asking if I was interested in interviewing. I first interviewed with the recruiter who conducted an hour long non-technical phone interview. I was then scheduled for an on-site 4 hour long technical interview. The interviews were conducted by two senior engineers and the director of engineering. Each interview was a typical technical question to be solved on a white board. The interview process was generally a good experience, the two senior engineering were engaging and seemed interested in the interview. However, the director of engineering spent a lot of the time texting on his phone and continually asked me to repeat myself when I asked questions or had comments. In my opinion, if he isn't interested in interviewing then he should delegate the process to someone else.
