    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Funding Circle (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Pretty chill interview more in the form of conversation. During on-site it is more of a test of daily experience of a software engineer rather than a typical algorithms interview.

    Underwriting Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Very smooth process. I had a phone interview, then a scheduled on-site the same week. The interview was very conversational. The interview questions weren't tricky at all, but they will probe you. It's best for you to really know what you'd be getting out of the role and what you have to offer. Make sure you're also prepared to go over your resume and previous work experiences.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Funding Circle (Richmond, CA) in November 2019.

    Interview

    The recruiter is not professional and asked questions with bad assumptions. Lack of common respect. Cut off conversation several times and seems didn’t want to know the interviewee. In all, it’s not a god experience.

    Capital Markets Operations Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Funding Circle.

    Interview

    Regular behaviroal based questions. Video Interview was having issues on boths side, the hiring manager could not connect to video, after 15 mins the video started to work but she could not hear me.I tested the sound in my own systems and in skype to make sure the video and sound were working and it was, but when I logged into funding circle's software it did not work. After a few minutes and messing with the setting, I got the sound to work. I felt like it really set the interview to a bad start, there were not instructions on how to get the sound to work and I had to figure it out on my own after the interview already started. The hiring manager seemed stressed from the whole situation and took it out on me, I could tell she was not interested before I even got the chance to speak. Most companies do a phone screen for the second interview then an in-person or video for the final interview, but it's clear that Funding Circle cares highly about apperancae. I also felt that the hiring manger was judging my apperance, I do not think she wanted a dark skin person on her team even though I was very well put together. This type of discrimination you can really feel by the way they talk to you.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Funding Circle.

    Interview

    The interview process involved a phone interview with the recruiter, followed by a video interview with the team lead. I then went into the office and met with five individuals, two directly related to the role, one closely related, one cross-functional, as well as the recruiter.

    Follow-ups were courteous, concise, and regular throughout the process. The timeline and process were clearly laid out from the very beginning and closely adhered to.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Funding Circle.

    Interview

    After applying I received an e-mail to schedule a phone screening. I filled out my availability and was scheduled a time. Then another e-mail was sent scheduling me for the same opening but at a different time. I e-mailed the recruiter asking if I had been rescheduled and received no response. In order to be safe I prepared for the initial time and of course received no phone call. After that, I waited for the second scheduled time and got a phone call and was told to do a programming challenge.

    In the initial programming challenge e-mail I received no instructions. So I e-mailed the recruiter that I received the e-mail but the instructions were missing. I got no response... Fortunately I had the phone number from my screening and texted the recruiter and finally got the actual instructions. So far we are 0 for 3 in e-mail responses. So I proceed and put together a well documented solution to the coding challenge which met all the criteria and more and uploaded it to github. I then emailed the link to the recruiter of the github repo and ask for a confirmation that the party received my e-mail. No response again...

    It has been over a month and I don't even know whether my e-mailed solution was received or just simply declined. The lack of communication is actually very insulting and NONE of my e-mails were responded to.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Funding Circle (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Screening call and a couple online tests. Then phone call with the hiring manager and then an on-site interview with 4-5 people. Was told I was going to hear back the next week but was ghosted - never heard back. Was told it was going to be 2 weeks but have actually not heard anything. I'm assuming it's a no but at this point, I wouldn't accept it if they offered.

    Senior Data Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Funding Circle.

    Interview

    Call with a very bland recruiter - doesn't have any knowledge of the role, he just asks if you have any 'feather in the cap' moments to share. So you tell him about one project. Then he asks if you have any more stories. So you tell him another one. Then he asks if you have any more stories... So you tell him another one. This process repeats until you have had enough. So you ask if there is anything in particular and he says no, but if you would like to share more stories you can. Next is an online math assessment followed by a case study and video interview.
