    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at IXL Learning.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume and cover letter to the website, went through a phone interview and a job test which mirrors the main responsibilities of the job really well, and then interviewed at the San Mateo headquarters. It is a great company and a great job, and so the competition for each new job spot is pretty tough.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at IXL Learning (San Mateo, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I would not recommend working for the company. The whole process was terrible, recruiter acted super "buddy buddy" but took over weeks to get the results back. Engineers might not care if they want to work at your company, but they do care whether they passed the interview. Engineers invest a lot of personal time into an onsite interview.

    The onsite it self was very easy, makes you feel like you are working with unqualified people. I'd rather work with people who passed a series of hard interview questions. First a phone screen, if you pass, they fly you out for onsite with hotels etc.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at IXL Learning (San Mateo, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of an initial phone screen, a work sample that you a have a week to submit (I completed it in around 6 hours), a second phone screen that ended with a brain teaser and finally an on-site interview. If you take the time to do some research on interview strategies and what kinds of questions to expect then the phone screens shouldn't be too difficult. The interviewers were pleasant and quick to answer any questions I had. My on-site was by far the most challenging. They squeeze a lot of stuff into a short amount of time: three interviews, a test, and then lunch with members of the curriculum design team, all within the span of four hours. You'll be expected to do most of the talking during the on-site, so come prepared to ask questions--even those you may have already asked in previous interviews.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at IXL Learning.

    Interview

    Phone interview, about 30 minutes. She was brand-new to the company and didn't seem to have very much phone interview experience. Fairly straightforward questions and then a brain teaser. "Passed" this phone screen and then completed the worksheet assignment. After submitting the assignment, I received a form email saying that they were going to pursue other candidates.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at IXL Learning (San Mateo, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I had an interview, they asked the typical interview questions and the same jelly bean riddle that everyone else said. Then I had to do a design assignment, which I had a week to complete. It was actually a bit of work and took me about the whole week to complete, with the fact that I'm a student with a part time job.
