Interview

Initial phone chat with recruiter followed by a technical phone screen that lasted around an hour. Next step was a virtual 'onsite' that consisted of 2 coding interviews and 2 system design interviews. The interviews were extremely technical and design focused. The coding interviews focused very heavily on creating reliable code, thinking of edge cases and collaborating well with the interviewer. System design interviews were fairly standard and covered both designing a new system and talking about design experience and previous systems that I had designed. This was easily one of the most professional and well run interview processes that I had been part of. It also dived very deep on a technical level so you'll need to be very well prepared. There was no room to hand wave your way through it. These factors gave me additional confidence in Hulu as a company from both the technical bar and general organization which was key in me accepting the offer.

The typical process, the recruiter introduced the job, and the next interview was in person. I enjoyed the in person, but they ultimately went with another candidate. I enjoyed the back and forth with the recruiter more than the in person.

It was very professional. Its a bit lengthy if you make it to the final round. Online interviews can be distracting so make sure you are in a nice place.

Interview

It started out with a 30 minute phone call with the recruiter where they explain the role, the team, and who they're looking for. You should be prepared (at basically all stages) to talk a bit about yourself, your background, and what you can bring to the team. After the recruiter was a 60 minute technical phone screen. About ~20 minutes was spent on getting to know me as an applicant, my background, etc. The remaining time was in an online code collaboration environment where you walk through a problem with your interviewer(s). I'd say brush up on your coding language of choice; being able to solve LC mediums is about where you'd like to be in terms of fluency. But the problem itself can be more numerical than you'd see on LC — calibrate properly. After the technical interview is a (virtual, due to COVID-19) onsite. This consisted of back-to-back interviews, with the team being clear that I can take mini breaks as often as necessary. I met with a number of other technical and non-technical members that are part of or interface with the data science team. I closed out the interview with my recruiter where we went over the debrief timeline and competing offers. Overall I felt the interview process was difficult, but if you prepare in advance it was relatively fair given their standards. I made sure to thoroughly review areas of data science that closely aligned to what the team would be working on day-to-day (recommendation systems, modeling pipelines, etc).

First, a 30-minute screen with recruiter, including a compare/contrast question about two specific software. Next, a 60-minute technical interview -- half is discussing your past work, and half is a shared-screen coding problem that you go into almost blind.
