I applied through an employee referral The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CognitiveScale (Austin, TX)

Interview

I secured an interview through a referral. The recruiter was very prompt with the follow up and had an interview scheduled within a week and a half. The interviewers were very friendly. They explained their interests and inquired about mine. We then moved onto some questions related to machine learning. The interviewers really set me at ease. The office was very efficient and I received an offer within a week.

Interview Questions
  • The interview started with introductions followed by a question about my experience in machine learning. Then, they asked me about any projects/topics that I had in mind to work on over the summer and if I had any ideas.

I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at CognitiveScale

Interview

My interview process involved two phone screens, a coding exercise, and two 1-hour interviews over video-chat with some of the engineers. The first phone screen was a behavioral kind of interview, where they wanted to get a sense of my personality interests, and give me a chance to learn more about the company. The interview was with one of the recruiters, and it was short, easy, and relaxed. The second phone screen with was one of the engineering managers, and we went over more technical topics, including my experience, interests and projects. I was given some tech related questions about general programming concepts, but nothing difficult. Afterwards the phone interview I was sent a coding exercise to complete in the next week. The coding exercise wasn't difficult and didn't require much time to implement. The focus of the problem was more your ability to design and implement a simple program, rather than a strict algorithm challenge. The exercise intentionally had some ambiguity. After the challenge, one of the two interview's I had was going over the coding exercise. The engineers questioned some of my design ideas, how I handled edge cases, how I would change the design if different aspects of the problem changed, etc. I thought the interview was actually pretty informative. It didn't feel like they were trying to tear my code apart, but they were trying to see if I had really thought about the problem and gauge my experience. The last interview was more of a standard kind of tech interview with some other engineers. We talked about experience, projects, and I was give a small coding problem. Overall, the interviews felt casual and I got along well with everyone I spoke with. I got an offer a couple weeks later. I didn't get an onsite interview, but I feel that was mainly due to scheduling trouble from a competing offer.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at CognitiveScale (Austin, TX)

Interview

Recruiter reached out to me via LinkedIn. There was an initial call with her and a phone screen with 2 members on the ML team. That was followed by an on-site with 4-5 interviews. All the interviewers were really nice and knowledgeable. There were no trick questions - the team was genuinely trying understanding my experience / skill set / fit with the team. The interviews covered a wide range of topics from ML, engineering and two cases where the approach was evaluated rather than the solution. Final round was a chat with co-founder. The interview process was great overall and the recruiter kept me in the loop at every step which was pretty cool.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CognitiveScale (Austin, TX) in Mar 2019

Interview

Phone screen with the Director of Engineering, followed by an on-site visit that consisted of a short conversation with the Director of Engineering, 2 rounds of meeting with pairs of software engineers on the team, 1 round of meeting with QE, then a wrap-up conversation with the Director of Engineering. The 1st round with software engineers was focused on having a technical discussion regarding JS and web development and the 2nd round was focused on backend and infrastructure experience + a technical whiteboard problem. The meeting with QE was aimed at determining my level of experience interacting with quality engineering / test and product management teams. The interview process emphasized interest in the company and the work that they do more so than technical expertise (although there was still a decent bit of technical evaluation). I came away with a positive experience and was able to get all of my questions about the company answered in the many discussions I had with the Director of Engineering and recruiters throughout the process.

Interview Questions

  • Why would someone want to use a library like isomorphic-fetch vs the "built-in" fetch?
