    Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Interview

    They dropped the ball, a lot. I'd schedule a call with them, and they would forget. I'd be deep in the interview process, talking about "running my own team," only to never hear from them ever again.

    Security Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Duo Security.

    Interview

    One of the best interview experiences I've had at a company.

    First step was a 1hr video call with the hiring manager to discuss the role + some behavioral questions.

    Following that I had a 1hr video call with an engineer from the team. This was pretty casual (discussion of my background and the project I'd work on at Duo).

    After that I was invited to an all day on-site interview. This included three behavioral / product interviews, lunch with two potential team members, and three technical interviews. The first tech interview was a coding one, the second a design one, and finally a causal tech interview with one of the engineers I'd be working with.

    Everyone was very pleasant and there were no trick or overly difficult questions.

    Senior Customer Success Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Duo Security (Austin, TX) in January 2020.

    Interview

    - phone screen with recruiter
    - phone screen with CS manager
    - onsite

    The expectations set by the recruiter did not align to the phone screen with the hiring manager. I was told it would be a "deep dive into your resume" however, when speaking with the hiring manager she was taking her dog for a walk and was nowhere near a computer to look at my resume. None of the questions by the hiring manager were based on my professional experience. All were cultural questions such as "Tell me your life story." and "What do you like to do for fun?" The hiring manager let me know a decision would be made on next steps by end of that week. After following up several times, it's been 3 weeks since hearing anything back. Simple straightforward communication would have been much appreciated, as transparency is all that a candidate is really looking for. However, this really gave a negative first impression.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Duo Security.

    Interview

    The Interview process was too extended and included a back and uncomfortable dialogue about salary. I was asked to provide my w2 from my current role plus the hiring manager made this a huge point of contention that at one point I was about to walk away.

    Interview Questions

    • How much am I making at my current role? Sales strategy, what would be a 30/60/90 for the role.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Duo Security (Ann Arbor, MI) in October 2019.

    Interview

    I was selected to interview for a specific team at Duo after going to the career fair and their office event post the career fair. I had a first technical phone screening which lasted for about an hour. After that, I was selected for an on-site interview at their office in downtown Ann Arbor which went for about 2 hours. 1 hour with 2 software engineers and 1 hour with the hiring manager. After waiting for a good period of time, I was extended the offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Technical would be about the projects you have listed down on your resume, your knowledge of cryptography, web security, some knowledge of Application Security and Python. Behavioral questions are pretty standard. You can find some similar elsewhere on this page potentially.   Answer Question

    My experience began with a phone screen followed by two more phone interviews with the hiring manager. The process moved along nicely, I enjoyed the discussions, and I thought things went great. Unfortunately, that was the last I heard from them.

    Interview

    Just looking for a mercenary rep. You'll be churned and burned in a few years. Not a bad deal if that's what you want, but nothing about growth, culture, and opportunity. They didn't speak well of the company. Seems like they are going through growing pains. Also, I'm not giving out the names of my accounts and my deals. My resume, accomplishments, and work speaks for itself.

    Interview Questions
