Software Developer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Bellingham, WA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Logos Bible Software (Bellingham, WA).

Interview

I first contacted Logos by e-mail. I also asked a friend who knew a Logos insider to e-mail a recommendation. After a long wait, Logos contacted me for a phone interview, which consisted mainly of technical questions to test my knowledge of programming languages, algorithms, and data structures. Apparently it went well, since they offered to fly me to Bellingham for an onsite interview.

I read and watched everything on the Logos website about the company's culture and products, including the founder's ominously titled book "Fire Someone Today". Anyone interested in working here should do this!

The on-site interview included a panel interview followed by lunch with several developers and a one-on-one with the CEO/founder. I get the feeling the one-on-one would have been canceled if the group interview didn't go well. For the panel interview I was asked to solve several technical problems on a whiteboard, and asked a wide range of questions about my experience and how I would solve various technical problems. There were no weird psychological questions. In the final interview I asked several questions about the company's culture, ownership structure, and future plans. I liked the answers.

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Logos Bible Software (Tempe, AZ) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Reached out to Logos via their website's job posting. The process took place over the span of about 1.5 months and all communication happened over email (aside from in-person interviews). I was given a phone screen interview initially, followed up a week or so later by a panel interview at the Tempe office, then flown to Bellingham a few weeks later for a final all-day interview.

    Interview

    At the conclusion of my internship, I was offered the chance to interview for a Full-time position. The interview was conducted by people I had met during my internship, but intentionally not ones that I had a close relationship with. The interview lasted a couple hours and consisted of technical knowledge verbal response questions as well as 3 or 4 programming problems that covered basic areas of knowledge such as trees.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Logos Bible Software (Tempe, AZ) in June 2012.

    Interview

    I submitted a resume online and got a call from a recruiter a week or so later. They did a brief phone screen and then brought me in for a technical interview on-site.

    When I arrived, there were only two people at the office and they told me that all of the interviewers were on vacation that day, but they could interview me. They didn't know anything about the position that I was applying for, so they did a very high-level technical interview. They focused a lot on architecture and algorithms, which I thought was a strange combo.

    After the short interview, we had a brief lunch and just talked about the company a bit. They said they'd contact me in a few weeks. Months later, they hadn't contacted me and they didn't respond to my calls or emails.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked about how to architect a scalable website .   Answer Question

    I'm sorry about the lack of follow-up; we've already made changes to our process to prevent this from happening again. We don't have special 'interviewers', and this interview involved a team lead ... More

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Logos Bible Software (Bellingham, WA) in December 2011.

    Interview

    The whole process was pretty smooth, although it took almost a month for the final decision to come through.
    The panel interview is pretty intense which is part of the process since they want to see how well you think under pressure...

    Easy, they are very straight forward and professional through the whole process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Logos Bible Software (Bellingham, WA) in March 2010.

    Interview

    I sent an email which was never responded to after seeing an ad on craigslist. A few months later I responded to a different ad and got a phone screen. Since I lived in town, I came in for an in-person panel interview. After the in-person panel I was offered a job.

    After working here and being on the other side of the interview process, I would say that a number of incoming emails are lost and people aren't contacted, at least in the Software Development department. So, if you don't get contacted, I would follow-up.

    I thought that I did pretty poorly during my interview questions but it must have been good enough because they offered me a job after the panel interview. I think the process is a little different today because the job offers typically are tendered later.

    Interview Questions

    • "Write a function to find a cycle inside a binary tree." I never worked with binary trees except academically, so this was a bit of a ringer.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The negotiation was short. I asked for more money because I was taking a small pay cut to work here. My request was honored after a day.
