    Application

    Sales Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Squelch.

    Interview

    HR said it was remote job. Then it became 1 day a week. When I talked to the hiring manager it had become 3 days a week and expected to increase. And the hiring manager sounded clueless about why he was talking to me.

    Don't waste your time with these future Trump White House employees.

    Marketing Communications Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Redwood City, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Squelch (Redwood City, CA) in January 2019.

    Interview

    My interviews at Squelch were scheduled easily, both phone and in-person. I was able to speak with a variety of stakeholders who were excited about Squelch and happy to have new blood join to help. The timeframe was perfect - no waiting for weeks to hear back. The recruiter stayed in touch regularly.

    Interview Questions

    • Because of my background in much larger companies (7,000 to 100,000 employees), the Squelch team wanted to make sure I would be able to handle a startup atmosphere where it's all-hands-on-deck. Would I feel frustrated with lack of super established structure?   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Squelch in March 2018.

    Interview

    After an informal conversation with the recruiter, I did a phone interview with an Engineering Lead. This led to an on-site interview with several Senior Engineers. Following the on-site I had a video interview with the VP of Engineering.

    They followed up quickly and were easy to work with through the whole process.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviews mostly focused on past systems experience. They had me describe the architecture of a couple systems I'd previously built, and then dug into the details, tradeoffs, and lessons learned for a long time.

      Additionally there were a couple of short whiteboarding questions, one that was all about probability and another that focused on algorithm design. It seemed like the most important part of these was actually thinking through them, asking good questions along the way, and collaborating with the interviewer.   Answer Question
