Software Engineer Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Scalyr (San Francisco, CA) in February 2019.

Interview

Absolutely pathetic. Arrogant bunch of people including recruiter. Wasted my one hr for this such ordinary company. No innovation. Just like a competitor to Splunk. But splunk is way ahead of them.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Scalyr (San Mateo, CA) in June 2018.

    Interview

    I would like to start by saying, this interview process was one of the best interview processes I've had in my job search. And I really appreciated the care, energy, and effort given throughout the entire process.

    There was a phone screen set up going over foundational knowledge of UI and getting a feel of what type of team, projects, and culture was being developed at Scalyr.

    The onsite interview process consisted of a series of 1-1 interviews, going across technical challenges, software engineering best practices, and culture fit. Each person was very collaborative and helpful in guiding the conversation to a better understanding of the problem and solution.

    Afterwards, as the offer came in Kathleen was very informative and available for all questions. She explained things in detail and went the extra mile to further the conversation and see what was the right thing to do.

    Overall I was very happy with the entire interview process and would recommend this company for any engineer looking for a new exciting, company to join! Thanks!
