    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Ticketfly (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Spoke to the recruiter, then had 2 phone screens (because I was being considered for 2 different positions) . Cleared both of those, and was invited onsite. Met with 4 people onsite including the hiring manager from one team.
    One interview focused on my past experience , technologies used , agile working methodology etc. There were no technical questions asked in this one. The second one involved a whiteboard coding question. It was a good question, but was very coding intensive, not sure if it was the ideal one to be done on a whiteboard.
    In the third round, I was asked some SQL , then was shown a piece of (groovy) code, and asked to point out design flaws in it. Last round with the hiring manager involved a design question and another whiteboard coding problem.
    Overall, seemed to be a good team and I got some good interview experience.
    I would have appreciated a lunch break or so, especially since the interviews started at 10 am and went on after 2 pm

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ticketfly in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interviewing process was pretty unprofessional. The recruiter no showed on my initial phone interview and asked to reschedule it when I e-mailed asking if we were still on. Weeks went by with no updates. I was invited on site to interview with a team of people. Two people didn't even show up. They rushed me in and rushed me out. Two days later I got a 2 sentence e-mail telling me I didn't get it.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Ticketfly.

    Interview

    The interviewer called on time. We discussed my background and then jumped into a design question and then a coding question. We had 10 mins in the end for my questions. The interviewer was clear in explaining the questions but it was difficult to gauge what was he expecting during brainstorming the design question.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ticketfly.

    Interview

    Interviewed through a referral but took them over two weeks to be contacted by someone when I was informed to hear from someone within the first week. Then when I was finally contacted, it was communicated as if they stumbled upon my resume rather than through a referral. When arrived at the interview, I only spoke with two people and that was it.

    No tour of the office.
    No introduction about the company.
    Nothing.

    If this is how they interview with other candidates, it definitely is a reflection of the company and I am not impressed by them at all.

    Customer Support Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ticketfly.

    Interview

    They have two people from customer support (managers) and one person from HR interview you. It lasted about 45 minutes. Don't bother applying if you aren't a "music nerd." I felt that I did really well at the interview, had great experience in customer support, and was friendly and confident. The only possible reason I can think of as to why I didn't get the job is because I hadn't been to a concert in a long time. So if you've been too cash-strapped to go to concerts, or too busy with school or a career or having kids, you're out of luck. It's all right, because the starting pay really stinks for this kind of work.

    Interview

    Mismanaged and completely unprofessional team. Engineers were very mediocre. The interviewers don't have a common vision of what they are looking for in the new hire.
