    Web Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Digital First Media (Denver, CO) in December 2012.

    Interview

    I was pulled in by a recruiter and put through a rigorous examination. Both interview questions and sample code was required. I was also given a coding problem to solve (on my own time). All in all, an effective process that allowed me to show my strengths without the usual junk questions.

    • Coding problem. I had to build a tool to ingest a feed from Flickr in only 25 lines of code or less. Usually I get standard coding vocabulary questions (that anyone could answer) not a real-world problem.   1 Answer
