    Applications Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Bitly (Denver, CO) in September 2015.

    Interview

    You do a phone screen, a code test and then an 4 in-person interview. There is live coding session, a architecture round, a culture fit and generic round. The live coding session is not about your ability to code and people should not stress about it like I did.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bitly (New York, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was made up of a phone screening, a code challenge, and an in-person series of four interviews. The in person interviews were for the most part fun and casual. Everyone was friendly and I got the feeling they wanted me to succeed. I had a good experience, but after a few assurances post-interview that they would be getting back to me asap, I never heard anything.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Bitly (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    For the most part it was good, however there is a sense that it is very controlled. for example, meeting with those who would likely report into me to get an understanding from their end and ensure synergy before moving forward

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bitly (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied to Bitly in November and the process took about 2 weeks.

    The interview process started with an initial phone call from Lexi. She was extremely straight forward and honest regarding the position I was applying for and answered all questions I had, which was quite a few. After passing that round, I was asked to come in to the office and meet with the CRO, director of sales, team lead and members of the team that I would be working with.

    The interview process is taken seriously here. They actually take the time to get to you know you to make sure you would be a good fit. Everyone was extremely friendly and very upfront about the structure and what my day to day would look like. Being here for over a month now, I can say they vet you well and really take the time to introduce you not only to those you'll be working with directly, but the entire company.

    Great company with great leaders who want to see you (personally) succeed!

    1. Phone interview with a recruiter

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bitly (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Very long process - over 2 weeks. Very friendly HR manager - but seemed unsure of what the role would end up being. Not very clear on the precise job I would be doing.

    Got to the meet in person portion but I didn't do so well (I was sick and it was a rainy day). Seemed like a great opportunity for the right fit.
