    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at GoPro (San Francisco, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Interview had almost zero production questions. They wanted to know list of video gear I can use, and editing I've done. I was told most listed jobs weren't even hiring and actually "frozen", but they would "talk to me anyway to get an idea of my video editing background" even though that was not what I was interested in applying for.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Mateo, CA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at GoPro (San Mateo, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process took 2 weeks. Got a call from a recruiter and then I wan invited for the on-site interview. It was a pleasant experience. I went through a rapid interview process where I talked to 6 people back to back in 3 hours and that was it! They were quite enthusiastic and passionate about their work, not to mention the affection towards the company and its products. One advice to the candidates would be to show your passion and motivation and why you want to work for GoPro. I am sure the answer is not tough but you also have to showcase your previous work (can be anything like a mobile app, photos, videos, code or a website!). They were quite patient and encouraged me to speak whatever I wanted to about the company or my experience. Got the offer in the next week!

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GoPro (San Mateo, CA).

    Interview

    Very enjoyable and stress free experience, they went straight to the point.

    Their procedure is pretty standard; you start with the recruiter phone screening, then a technical chat with the hiring manager; followed by interactive technical interview (phone chat in front of computer) and on-site interview.

    The attitude of the workers there is pretty good; they were friendly and polite.

    Be sure that you do not consider their friendliness with a good sign about your interview; so always answer the question fast, quickly and specify where possible, if there is any doubt about your answer.

    It look like a nice place to work.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were on a wide spectrum; some aimed at programming (the usual algorithm questions on strings, tree, data structures in general), others were more oriented on how to intercept issues before they happen, and how to manage problems when they happen.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at GoPro in February 2016.

    Interview

    Got in contact with GoPro, and we set up a phone interview time. They stand me up. We work out another time. They call me 20 minutes late. And they don't even apologize for not calling me or calling me so late. Unprofessional, and do not respect your time at all.

    I applied online. I interviewed at GoPro (San Mateo, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    1) Quick phone call with the recruiter. He was new and could not find the initial screening one-liner questions!
    2) Technical interview with hiring manager. He asked 2 coding questions. Pretty simple DS questions
    3) Onsite 5 rounds interview. Interviewers were friendly except for the hiring manager. DS coding questions-medium level were asked along with detailed questions on my experience and projects. Hiring manager asked all the basic questions of system level. Over all experience was good. I was expecting positive reply as I did well but they said although interviewers were impressed they want someone with more experience in automation. Dint they check my resume before calling me?
