Interview

Techincal and relaxed. Phone interview led to a technical Google Hangout interview which was about data structures and algorithms in the language comfortable for me. I chose Python and nailed the question asked. It was then followed by a in person interview, where the employers gauge my interests and expertise.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Stack Overflow in July 2017.

    Interview

    Overall process was positive, everyone were nice and responsive. The CV review takes a long time, however, if your interviews are already scheduled they most likely will be conducted in a short period.

    Interview Questions

    • Code screen is very easy to pass if you know how to code. Just solve some questions in notepad/on Leetcode to get a feeling of how to write code without an IDE.   Answer Question
    • Algorithmical interview question is on Leetcode - medium difficulty. About 20 mins to write a solution in google docs and fix the bugs if any. If you're able to solve most easy/medium problems there you're likely to pass this step. For me personally it was a little harder to do it in real-time on the interview than on the leedcode, but it worked fine.   Answer Question
    • The architectural interview turned out to be a difficult SQL interview. From the architectural side the question was pretty straightforward (db with 2 tables). However, to select the appropriate data from it I had to write a complex query with several selects, joins, group by's and aggregate functions with CASE WHEN etc. It was the part where I failed.   Answer Question
