Databricks

Anonymous Employee in Paris

Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview
Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Databricks (Paris) in Dec 2020

Interview

Great experience, well defined steps. HR contact was there to explain me the next steps. The people I met during the process increased my motivation to join. Very humble yet highly skilled people in their domain. The interview process was quite long; HR screening, hiring manager interview, take home assignment on DB platform (scala + python mix), 2 technical interviews, then 4 more culture fit interviews with people from different teams. In parallel I had another offer but the HR rep tried his best to accelerate the process so I can have an offer in time.

Only get a chance to OA, but OA is difficult and proctored, program time constraints are strict. If you are not confident at your programming skills, do more leetcode questions.

Interview

I applied online. Several days later got OA through CodeSignal, which has some hard questions. Could only finish 2/4 in 70 min. You don't get score if you write most codes but the returned results are not right. It is unfair if someone gets very difficult questions while others do not.

Interview

Had the first screening call with a recruiter. He was late to the call and I had to follow up with him to remind him that we had an interview scheduled. Halfway through the call he told me he was in the middle of an "important meeting" and trying to listen to both conversations at the same time. Definitely felt like a slap in the face and felt like my time wasn't being respected. Why would you schedule an interview if you weren't actually available at that time? Also not sure how he was able to properly assess my fit for the role if he wasn't even paying attention to what I was saying throughout the conversation. Overall disappointed with this interview experience, especially at such a big company like Databricks that takes a lot of pride in their company culture.

Easy Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Databricks (Washington, DC) in Sep 2021

Interview

This was for a SA role in the Federal Civilian space. I was quickly connected to the hiring manager virtually. Not a tech screen. He wanted to mainly know what Qs I had. He wanted to know if I was more interested in a "hands-on" keyboard role or "guide" role. I mentioned that I prefer more "hands-on" roles but I am open to the "guide" role as it would still be very focused on data solutions. He suggested I talk to the RSA managers and if that doesn't work out we can continue where we left. I thought that was okay, so we ended it at that. After that, I never heard back on my application (positive or negative). One odd thing was the manager asked about my comfort level for working late hours/weekends. I have never been asked that question but I answered in the affirmative ("as needed") as it happens from time to time. In any case, I asked them to withdraw my application as I got a great offer from Snowflake which was also in the works at the time. My gut feeling tells me the manager was making judgements based on his biases (like age or other having kids) that were not facts or ever having worked with me. The manager appeared to be much younger than me on the video call. That said, Databricks is a great company at least their product and what I see on GD reviews, and this may be one off.

Interview

Front end system design for first round, but it is more like front end coding. Nothing to do with actually designing front end to back end interaction, front end security etc. Raw js/ts to manipulate the state and DOM.

Interview Questions
  • A simple UI question with an async api call to update the component. Need to do it in pure js/ts and raw state.
