    Average Interview

    Interview

    Boston Dynamics doesn't do straightforward technical interviews (with a coding aspect) instead focusing on overall technical knowledge and problem solving. After hearing back from a recruiter, I did one behavioral interview and one technical interview before declining the position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Boston Dynamics (Waltham, MA) in June 2018.

    Interview

    One behavioral phone screen with HR, one technical phone screen with a lead engineer, and then a 4-hour onsite day. Toured the building, gave a 20 minute technical presentation, then interviewed with HR and 4 engineers (separately).

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Boston Dynamics.

    Interview

    The good: Robots were cool, interesting environment, small company feel.

    The bad: Only asked technical questions (including standing at a whiteboard and doing problems on the spot) and didn't seem to care about getting to know me as a person or knowing about my career aspirations. Asked questions to intentionally try and trip you up. They were over 30 minutes late bringing me in for the interview. Non-diverse workforce. Heavily skewed towards MIT grads. The engineers seemed cliquey and unwelcoming.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Dynamics (San Jose, CA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was very straight forward, they did their phone interview then asked for a person interview shortly followed by a second interview. The last of which however felt as if the interviewer was not human, almost as a machine but I could be over thinking things, I tend to do that.
