    Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kixeye.

    Interview

    Had two phone interviews, a small game assignment with 48 hours completion time, then an in person interview. I designed my game to illustrate my competence using Unity3D but the interviewers didnt take the time to look at it. I think they missed a great opportunity to see how a candidate solves problems, coding style, etc.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Kixeye in March 2017.

    Interview

    Went through an initial phone screening with HR, followed by a written design test. The design test involved several content design challenges concerning the game I was applying for. Once the test was complete, I had two Skype interviews with Kixeye developers, where we mostly discussed my design test.

    About a week after completing the test, I was informed the position was rescoped for somebody more senior and was not offered a position.

    The people were polite but not particularly enthusiastic. The sudden rescoping of the position was also quite off-putting, as there was no way I could become "more senior" during the interview process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Kixeye (San Francisco, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for Kixeye through Indeed.com and got an email back from a recruiter who said that she would like to schedule a phone interview. I talked with her on the phone and she gave me a problem to solve. I solved the problem and she said she would let someone else contact me in a few days. Sure enough, I had another phone interview and he asked more questions about the position and asked me to list a few good qualities of a good QA engineer.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kixeye (San Francisco, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I was emailed for an interview and we did it over the phone. The interviewer was late and quite frankly, sounded uninterested in what I had to say. The process was pretty standard and the questions were nothing that I didn't expect.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kixeye in April 2016.

    Interview

    Just had a short phone interview with in house recruiter. She just asked some questions on experience and skills. The overall conversation went well and I answered all her questions in as non-technical terms as possible but for whatever reason they decided to move ahead with other candidates. Not entirely sure theyre budgeting appropriately for the compensation for this position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kixeye (San Francisco, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Overall, I believe the entire process was efficient and honest. After applying, I received a phone call from the recruiter. He sent me a timed assessment for analytical thinking skills. Then we set up a time for a phone interview with the hiring manager. Lastly, I went in for a series of interviews with all levels for the particular team. The onsite interview process was several hours.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kixeye.

    Interview

    There was an initial phone screening with HR, a phone interview with the hiring manager, and an on-site interview with three people (one at a time) on the devops team. HR is extremely helpful and friendly and the team was pleasant to talk to. Technical questions were trivial, but the team seemed to have unreasonably high expectations of prior experience for an internship position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kixeye (San Francisco, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Fairly straightforward. A couple calls followed by an onsite interview that lasted about 4 hours. They didn't ask very challenging questions. It felt like more of a personality/culture fit more than anything. On my onsite I met with 5 people, each for about 30-60mins.
