    Senior Front End Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Prosper.com (San Francisco, CA) in April 2018.

    Interview

    I had the pleasure of interviewing for Prosper which began with a phone screen into a quickly scheduled technical interview where they asked one LC medium question.

    Once I got through, they scheduled a half day onsite at their office where I had a chance to meet the team and learn more about the company.

    The interview was pretty straight forward aside from some low level JavaScript questions that were asked regarding event loops and queue stacks. Everyone was nice, and most of the interview consisted of discussions revolving around tech. I felt like the interview was not as technical as others I've been in which was somewhat alarming.

    The team is embarking on several new projects and building teams out to fill the necessary roles for each team.

    Shortly after the onsite, I received an offer and was updated at every step of the process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Prosper.com (San Francisco, CA) in April 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process overall was quick and efficient. Very little delay in communication which facilitated the process.

    The technical phone screen was not overly very difficult.

    The on-site interview was typical compared to other Software Engineering companies:
    A mixture of behavioral, experience, and technical questions. Even though the interview was for a front end position, the technical questions asked centered around general CS / JavaScript concepts and did not touch upon CSS.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Prosper.com (San Francisco, CA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Phone screen and then onsite. Phone screen was pretty easy. Onsite was scheduled for 3.5 hours but went until 4.5 hours leaving me very exhausted. The panel was technically strong. I liked their questions. I was surprised that the director also wanted to conduct a tech interview. I really wish the interviewers gave some breaks or checked if I needed drinks/snacks considering the fact that the interview was so long. I had to cancel other interviews since this one left me exhausted. Felt I wasted time/energy since I did not get offer anyways.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Prosper.com (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    2 Phone Screen + Onsite Interview with 5 folks 30 minutes each. Red flags: the direct team was not culturally diverse, all members from India. They were unprofessional, picked up on some biased viewpoints and was getting mixed messages. Wouldn't want to work with this team. Company needs to train them on how to conduct interviews but saved me the time of making a mistake in ending up working with this team.

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Prosper.com.

    Interview

    I applied online and heard back from the recruiter via email 2 days later. 5 days after that, I had a phone interview with the recruiter. 3 days after that, I had another phone interview with the manager. 17 days after that, I had a panel interview with four members of the team. 11 days after that, I had an interview with a senior member of the team on a few hours' notice. I emailed the recruiter 6 days after that for an update, only to be told I wasn't a match. When I replied asking for specific feedback, I didn't receive a response. All in all, it took over six weeks and four separate interviews to determine that I wasn't the person for the job. Given the drawn-out process, the same-day interview request, and the lack of response, it's clear that Prosper doesn't care about its job candidates.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Prosper.com (San Francisco, CA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    One telephonic technical interview 1 hour long, asked 2-3 coding q and a bunch of java core questions like garbage collection, type of exceptions, string manipulation question, they love questions related to the binary search tree.

     After 3-4 days I got a call for an onsite interview, 5 rounds 45 min each. The interview was pretty intense. In each round, at least 3-4 coding questions and REST APIs. A couple of SQL queries, make sure to prepare for REST APIs and SQL, it won't be written in the job description but this is really important for them.

    I did not find office culture very attractive but the location is great.
