Interviews for Top Jobs at Blockstream
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lisbon, Lisbon District
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Blockstream (Lisbon, Lisbon District) in Mar 2023
At an initial video call with introductions and an explanation of the interview process I was told that the next step is a take-home coding challenge that I would receive immediately after the call. I didn't receive any. I send two emails to ask for the coding challenge after 3 days and again after another week, but didn't get a response to my emails as well.
- It didn't come to this as I didn't get any response to my emails after the initial call.
Anonymous Interview Candidate
I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Blockstream in May 2021
The HR Manager that I had an initial interview with was amazing, super friendly, and very welcoming. She really seemed to understand my skills and experience and was lovely to talk to. Unfortunately, the next interview I had was probably the worst I've ever experienced. I interviewed with a manager who was unfriendly, didn't know how to interview properly, wouldn't turn their camera on, and was actually looking for someone with different skills than what was listed on the job description. Basically there was a major disconnect between HR and the Engineering team which is not great. They were looking to backfill the position I was applying for so it really seemed like someone left their company abruptly. I am not struggling to see why.
- Take me through your portfolio. What do you know about Bitcoin? Those were the only two real questions, otherwise, it was the interviewer listing off about 5 tools/frameworks that a candidate had to be an expert with already. Not sure they'll find a developer that fluent in those technologies for a more entry-level position....
Technical Account Manager
Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Blockstream in Jun 2016
A past colleague of mine referred me for a software engineering role. Everyone I interviewed with was very smart and clearly outlined how things work internally, the structure of teams, projects they are working on, etc. The recruiting manager was attentive and seemed to do her best to push the process forward and make sure I was being taken care of. Some people were a bit rough around the edges, but I was excited to learn more and ultimately get an offer that I accepted. The process from start to finish was: - Phone screen with recruiting manager - Phone interview with hiring manager - Onsite interview part 1 in Mountain View - Onsite interview part 2 in SF - Offer
