Interview

There were many rounds and it was a very thorough interview process, but recruiters made it a pleasant and enjoyable one. There were a mix of technical, behavioral and situational rounds that were nicely segregated. Recruiters are kind enough to give feedback after rounds and prepare you well for the next round.

Interview Questions
  • Tell me about a time when one of your projects didn't go according to plan, how did you get it back on track?

Very smooth and comfortable. Involves some DSA with more focus on industry practices. Each stage is well explained and is exactly as it is described in the docs provided to candidates.

Interview

30 minute call with a recruiter. This is followed by a case study review based on a project from your portfolio or a project you’re proud of and want to share. No slides, just talking through it. Then a behavioural interview with a manager. Likely more rounds but didn’t get through.

Interview Questions
  • Walk us through a portfolio piece / case study (45min interview).

Interview

The interview process was extensive with multiple rounds but that was helpful in terms of getting to know the team. I received thoughtful and fair interview questions without a lot curveballs nor non pertinent questions. I received timely feedback throughout the process. I didn’t have a ton of time to ask questions but the recruiter helped make themselves available.

Interview

tldr: An exhausting and stressful process for feedback that equated to 'you didn't read our minds'. There was a take home project, an interview or two with a hiring manager, and then between 4-8 hrs of interviewing, which involved presenting my take home project. The whole process was a really big time sink. I get that companies really want to make sure they hire a good fit, but I also question when a company isn't able to hire a BIA without a very high amount of performance from the candidate. There was some serious 'letting perfect be the enemy of great' vibes here. Now granted, this was the first big interview process of my Job Search Ordeal, so I wasn't as polished as I could have been (and eventually was). However, the large tech company I ended up taking a job with did not put me through anything close to as stressful a process as Stripe's. Most of the people I spoke to were pleasant enough, but ultimately it seemed like a place where every decision is agonized over when they need not be. A *very* outside opinion, so take everything I say with a grain of salt. Ultimately I don't think it would have been a great fit, so all's well that ends well. I did really enjoy meeting with the team hiring manager.

Interview Questions
  • They gave me some data and asked to predict future numbers. There were three questions to answer. There was a customer experience session where they asked me questions related to churn and retention.

Interview

Overall bad experience. Most of the interviewers seem disinterested, no enthusiasm when talking about the company. After the interviews the recruiter ghosted, the only feedback was a copy/paste reject over a week later. Emails asking for feedback or a follow-up call were all ignored. Coding Round The interviewer was fair enough. I just didn’t complete enough parts of the question. The frustrating part was 126 lines of markdown explaining the question. Unreasonable to expect someone to parse through that long of a problem description for a 30min problem. Given a String, split it into major parts separated by special char '/'. For each major part that’s split by '/', we can further split it into minor parts separated by '.'. # ### Example 1 # str = stripe.com/payments/checkout/customer.john.doe # minor_parts = 2 # after Part 1 compression # => # s4e.c1m/p6s/c6t/c6r.j2n.d1e # after Part 2 compression # => # s4e.c1m/p6s/c6t/c6r.j5e # ### Example 2 # Given: # str = www.api.stripe.com/checkout # minor_parts = 3 # (after Part 1 compression) # => # w1w.a1i.s4e.c1m/c6t # (then after Part 2 compression) # => # w1w.a1i.s7m/c6t Integration Round They supply two JSON files containing requestlog of charges made on Stripe API. You write a function to test them by replaying the request to a live API. Part 1 you compare the HTTP status code Part 2 you need to record and compare certain ID’s between requests. At first this seemed simple enough, wrote the code to do this, it wasn’t working so start debugging. Interviewer doesn’t appear to know what’s going on either. With 2 min left says something about the type of ID being different, as in you get say a Customer ID vs Charge ID. This wasn’t mentioned in the problem description or in the part 2 description. Manager Round This was quite annoying, the managers face was about ¾ in the camera. Like dude you ever zoomed before? He was constantly yawning during the interview and asking (unrelated) follow-up questions to give the appearance that he gave a crap.

Disappointed, no follow up after interview. Interview 101 - if someone is unsuccessful it’s very easy to decline rather than no response. Interview etiquette is simple - I took time to speak to you.

Interview

The process was long and unorganized. To me this demonstrated what is wrong with the tech interview process and proved to me that this is not a place I would like to work. I received very positive feedback the entire way. Questions covered in the interview consisted of mostly behavioral questions for the first two interviews (one phone interview with hiring manager and another zoom interview with a colleague). The recruiter is supposed to prepare you for the on-site. In advance of the technical interview, you are supposed to receive a pre-read doc, which I never received until one hour before the interview, at which time the recruiter asked to reschedule the technical interview for the next day (you are supposed to get the doc multiple days in advance, not the night before). After 9 interviews total, I received a rejection email with no feedback. There is an overall lack of consideration for the time and effort candidates put forth into preparing for these interviews in addition to the fact that most people have full time jobs and other life responsibilities.
