Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Datameer (New York, NY) in June 2014.

Interview

In person interview, I was pretty confident I had a solid background in the peripheral skills required, i.e hadoop, analytics, scripting in multiple languages, just not much Java. So I spent a full weekend and late nights poring through their product documentation and watching the videos on their site. I felt extremely prepared! Well, they didn't ask me anything technical! It was a "behavioral interview". I've been off the market for over a decade so this was all new to me. However all the questions were scenarios I actually am confronted with in my current job, where I am pretty successful! So I felt at the time as I answered it was in line with what they were looking for. I was even told on exit "we'd be lucky to have you". So I exited fairly confident I would move on to next steps, as they said due to size of the company and position need it should move pretty fast. After a week of hearing nothing, I reached out and was told they are going with another candidate. So now looking back, I just wonder how I actually did come off "behaviorally". It would be easier to accept if my technical acumen wasn't up to snuff. But now its a psychological mind game with myself wondering what a jerk I must of sounded like!!
