Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Stripe in November 2019.

Interview

Interview process consisted first of an online coding challenge. Next I was contacted by a recruiter and did a zoom interview with an engineer. Very practical coding question for about an hour.

Next I was scheduled for two 1 hour back to back zoom technical challenges. The first was a similar coding problem and the second was more of an actual project making requests and executing tests.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Stripe (San Francisco, CA) in September 2018.

    Interview

    Hackerrank, Phone Screen with an Engineer, Onsite interview consisting of 2 technical + 1 conversational interview.

    For the most part, this was a great interview process. Recruiters were quick to follow up and move forward, and I enjoyed the non-traditional, more practical interview.

    The onsite however was a bit of a mixed bag. I felt that 45 minutes was a bit rushed for the interviews, and had small issues with both of my technical interviews onsite. One interviewer was a last minute replacement and was not prepared for the interview, which slowed things down quite a bit. The other engineer got visibly frustrated when I was slow to code certain things, which flustered me. Thus, I was not surprised when they said they could not extend an offer to me.

    Interview Questions

    • More practical questions which involved some data structures use. One of the interviews also dealt with sending HTTP requests and interpreting/debugging responses.   2 Answers

    Interview

    I had 2 phone interviews prior to an on-site. HR was slow and seemed busy; every time, I had to send the same message twice to get a response. The on-site interview was a great experience.
