Interview

30 minute interview with recruiter. Passing that I was asked to do a take home coding project. The take home project involved create an new REST API endpoint by taking data from a couple of different existing API endpoints. It was a fun but challenging project. They suggested the project would take 3-4 hrs but that time was unrealistic. After passing the coding challenge I had a 30 minute video interview the director of engineering. Most of that interview consisted going over your background and experience. There was an strong desire to understand what if any experience you had designing REST APIs.

I applied to Bitly online via LinkedIn. A recruiter reached out to set up an initial phone screen interview. Next I completed a phone interview with the hiring manager. I visited the office to interview with two team members and the hiring manager. The final step was to interview with the department VP via video chat. Received an offer very shortly after.

I applied through an employee referral The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Bitly (San Francisco, CA) in Sep 2019

Interview

The interview process was great! I was connected to a recruiter right away as I was a referral. We had a 30 min intro call where I got to give an overview of myself and then hear more details on the role. The recruiter was very knowledgeable of the role and if he didn't know the answer to something, he directed me to ask the correct person in my next interview. I then had a 30 min call with the hiring manager and was asked to come onsite for a 2 hour interview. I met with 2 Senior Account managers, a Senior Account Executive and finally the hiring manager. Everyone was super easy to talk to and it felt more like a natural conversation than an interview which I really enjoyed.

Interview Questions

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bitly (San Francisco, CA) in Jun 2019

Interview

I was contacted by a recruiter, had a brief recruiter conversation, a 30 minute call with the hiring manager, an onsite consisting of 5 interviews with mostly potential team members. The on-site was mostly with technical and product staff for the team. One interview was a culture fit with a project manager from elsewhere in the company. Most interviews contained broad questions about approach and thought process. One interview was a case study where we went in depth.
