    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Coupa Software Inc (San Mateo, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I started with a phone interview and then I went in for a face to face interview. The various team members were really nice, knowledgeable and helpful.

    It didn't feel like the right fit, especially given the commute I would have had.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Coupa Software Inc.

    Interview

    Contacted by a recruiter. She scheduled a phone screen with a engineer in coupa. The engineer talked to me on the phone and said he would like to do a formal technical phone interview with me next week and he didn't call me by then. Then the recruiter called me said he was out of schedule on that day and would like to schedule another time with me. I agreed. But he stood me up again. It was so unprofessional. Two months later, another recruiter submit my resume to this company again. A engineer talked to me on the phone with an attitude. A week later, they said they would move forward with me. I hate this company and the people I talked to are rude.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Mateo, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Coupa Software Inc (San Mateo, CA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    First I had a phone interview and that went well, so then I had an onsite interview which didn't go well. Most of the questions were SQL related and it had been a long time since I had to write straight SQL statements. They decided I didn't have enough knowledge for the position but then I was interviewed for a different one. I had 4 additional phone interviews which varied between technical questions and getting to know you questions. Throughout the entire process I got a really good vibe from everyone I talked to and interacted with which made me all the more interested in the company.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate anything. They came in at the lower end of my range and I wanted to ask for more, especially with the expenses it would take to get to work each day, but I was too scared to. I figured the generous vacation policy more than makes up for it, though.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Coupa Software Inc (San Mateo, CA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Everyone seemed very nice. I would not say that interview was super technical. In my opinion just right. Enough to make sure you know what they need you to know and not ridiculous to the point of having to remember CS theory and some things that you can google for.
    There was a technical part, they conversation about goals and interests in general.

    Interview Questions

    • I guess i've done enough interviews to be almost ready for anything, but i always struggle when i am asked about the biggest challenge at work.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Somewhat easy, had to go back and forth as i already had a good salary and did not want to give that up easily

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Coupa Software Inc (San Mateo, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Did not receive any sort of information after the phone screen. My phone screen was good but did not hear from the team despite of many number of follow up emails. I feel this was so unprofessional to at least intimate about the process to the candidate.

The process is straight forward and they asked me to write some queries , given some script and asked me to find the mistakes. Next day I received a mail saying my profile is not shortlisted .
    Overall interview process is very smooth and people at Coupa are very cool.

    Interview

    HR was quick to respond after initial resume submission and very helpful throughout the entire process. It took 3 total office interviews. If hired, there was a 2 week new hire boot camp, but I was informed that it would likely have best benefit for Sales folks.
