    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Instructure (Cottonwood Heights, UT).

    Interview

    I applied through referral. The process took about 3 weeks. First had for a phone interview with the A/R manager and a Revenue accountant. They were really nice people. Asked a couple of accounting questions to test my knowledge. Very friendly interview. On the following week, I had an onsite interview. Gave me a tour of the whole office. The corporate controller was really personable, and friendly. At the end of the interview, they asked me for my references. Two days later, I got an offer, and accepted it.

    Customer Success Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Instructure.

    Interview

    Virtual interview, through a Cisco software(a little buggy, what not use Hangouts?). Two people were interviewing me, a girl and a guy. They weren't from HR because Instructure only has one HR person and he was pretty busy, so they did the interview themselves - the interviewers are from the Customer Success department. You can tell that they didn't know what to look for or how to judge a good applicant (not saying that I was a good applicant). They didn't really care about my prior experiences, but were mainly looking for people that would fit in to their "cool" culture. Interview was just a little frustrating.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Instructure (Salt Lake City, UT) in February 2017.

    Interview

    A great discussion with the team leaders. I sat down with three managers, who asked about my background, used several fun exercises to discover how I think, and created a very friendly and inviting atmosphere. Truly enjoyable and very rewarding. They were very receptive to questions and comments, and made the interview process a fun experience.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Instructure (Pleasant Grove, UT).

    Interview

    First interview was a screening interview with a recruiter asking general questions. Also wanted to know pay I was seeking before moving on. Generally a nice phone call.

    Second step was a coding challenge. The coding challenge wasn't bad but was completely different from the job description. Job description requires that you only need to be proficient in Javascript with preferred skills in Angular or React but tests your knowledge in Java, C, Python and back-end concepts for this front-end job.

    I overall felt like I was lead to believe the job was a front-end focused job but was tested on back-end concepts and languages instead.

    Final step is meeting with team members to dive into conceptual code and see if they like you.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Instructure (Chicago, IL) in January 2017.

    Interview

    HR screen was pleasant. Second screen was 15 multiple choice, followed by 2 coding questions. There isn't reasonably enough time to complete both coding tests, if you want to get the multiple choice questions correct. Hence, I had make a best guess on the multiple choice to have adequate time for coding. The coding questions are not trivial. 30 mins for 2 coding questions is not reasonable. Not sure who picks out these coding questions, but not an effective means to technically screen candidates. Is the idea to see how fast someone can code, or can take the time to come up with an elegant solution in a reasonable time?

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Instructure in January 2017.

    Interview

    The first interview was a 30 min phone call from HR. It was basically asking about my background and knowledge of fullstack development. After that was a test on HackerRank that consisted of 15 multiple choice questions and 2 programming challenges. The programming challenges weren't that hard, but you need to get through the multiple choice quickly to allow enough time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Instructure (Salt Lake City, UT) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Employee referral and asked to apply online.

    Briefly spoke to a recruiter who openly yawned on the phone when going over the position. He went over my resume and asked personality questions and why I think I am a good fit for Instructure. At the end he said he doesn't know what the next steps are and he will get back to me in a week.

    I never heard back for over a month and then he said the job opening was for an internal candidate who moved into this position and they just posted it online.
