    Marketing Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Imaginary Cloud in December 2020.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of three phases but I never had to wait much time for feedback, which is something I really appreciate. I felt that the interview itself was quite "human", as in, they truly care about the people that might become part of the team and if its a good fit for both parties, considering everyone's personal goals and ambitions. Overall, I believe that throughout the recruitment process you can just be yourself and if you don't know something, that's alright for an intern position, as long as you show willingness to learn and improve.

    Junior Data Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lisbon (Portugal)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Imaginary Cloud (Lisbon (Portugal)) in October 2020.

    Interview

    Very quick process! I was contacted the same day I applied and scheduled the first interview for the next day. The first interview consisted of a quick presentation and a session of direct question answering about core concepts in data science. The second interview lasted 1 hour and was meant to evaluate my motivations and objectives, as well as presenting the company in more detail. The last interview was a technical problem solving challenge, which lasts up to 2 hours, where I was given a puzzle-type problem to solve algorithmically. Overall, the process takes around 2 weeks but in my case I received an offer after only 1 week (record breaking time, I'd say).

    Interview Questions

    • From the second interview: What is most important? Inspiration or Hard Work?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Imaginary Cloud in September 2020.

    Interview

    The interview process consists of 3 different stages: the first is a 30-min, technical questionnaire that covers the foundations of CS. Next, it is a 1-hour HR interview. Finally, a 2-hour coding challenge in which it is asked to model a database and implement a web app (backend and frontend). The 3 sessions took place over the course of around 1.5 weeks and were all in English.

    All the interviewers were very nice and easygoing, and I felt my skills were valued. I would say the first technical interview is a bit overwhelming, as I couldn't find the ways to answer/describe appropriately many of the technical questions asked. The coding challenge is hard to do within 2 hours. Aside from that, I have a very positive experience.

    Interview Questions

    • In the technical interview, things like 'what's an object?', 'what does the command ls do'? In the HR interview, they asked me about my expectations, ambitions, nothing too complex.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Imaginary Cloud (Lisbon (Portugal)) in September 2020.

    Interview

    It was a process with 4 phases. The first phase is a technical interview with general questions regarding different technologies associated with the job description. This was followed by a human resources interview to see if the candidate and employer are aligned in terms of expectations. Then an interview with a PM and a senior programmer with a challenge to work on with a presented case study, live coding and discussion. The final step is the proposal made by the company.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview questions depend on the technologies detailed in the Job description and are general questions regarding them. Some of them might be a little theoretical, so do your homework and study them.   Answer Question

    Hi, Thank you for your honest feedback. Concerning the python-based questions, we only dive into the specifics of a given technology on Stage 3, the last of the 3 interviews of our hiring process. On Stages 1 and 2, probably the ones you’re referring to, we are mainly focused on understanding how well you know the common body of knowledge for programming and if we are the right place for you to learn and grow. We work for top clients worldwide and challenging projects all the time, so we really need to understand how solid is the knowledge of our candidates re software engineering. In any case, we thank you for your feedback and wish you the best of luck for your future.

    Javascript Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Imaginary Cloud in January 2020.

    Interview

    The interview process is divided into 3 steps:

    1- Technical interview 30-60min with questions about OOP principles, linux, git and databases;
    2- A non-technical interview in order to know you better;
    3- A challenge to create an application with both backend, in NodeJS, and frontend, in ReactJS.

    It doesn't matter what is the role you are applying, you need to know the OOP, at least in theory. I have applied to a Javascript role and not a single question was made about it, which doesn't make any sense to me.

    Feb 14, 2020 – CEO

    Hi, We regret to hear that you didn’t have a pleasant experience in our hiring process. As you mentioned, our hiring process is divided into three stages, that we often conduct in less than two weeks: Stage 1 - Understand how well the candidate knows the common body of knowledge for the position (in this case, Software Engineering); Stage 2 - Understand if we are the right place for that next step; Stage 3 - Understand how mature the candidate is in the technology/tooling that he/she is applying and if we like to work together; We look for people that can join our team and help us grow while growing with us. Thus why we designed Stage 1 the way you’ve done it. In our industry, technology shifts happen fast and often, and we need to ensure everyone is well prepared for those moments. We only dive into the specifics of the technology on Stage 3. The reason why we do this is that it’s easier to learn a technology (i.e. Javascript in your case) than to have a solid knowledge of Software Engineering or Computer Science. In any case, we thank you for your feedback. Best of luck in the future.
