    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Trifacta.

    Interview

    The HR calls me and asks behavioral questions for about 15 minutes. I think the intern prefers the applicants to focus on data science, but I do not have machine learning experience. The general process was smooth and happy, but the only problem is my answer to the question about what do you want to focus on. Maybe he thinks that my projects are too broad and he did not find a focus. I will pay attention in the future.

    Executive Role Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Trifacta (San Francisco, CA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Trifacta is VERY big on making sure people are the right match for the company. They did an extensive “slate” of interviews, where I met with all of the peers to the role I was applying for, as well as two of the people who would be reporting to me, and the CEO. Lots of personal attention, the meetings took most of the day. Each interviewer seemed to have a set of things they were looking for in the conversations.

    Everyone in the process was very smart. They are NOT big ego people, and I would say they are generally a “high EQ” kind of environment. They were all very thoughtful about the interview process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Trifacta (San Francisco, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    First phone call was with HR asking a little about my background and talked about the company. Second phone call was with one of the Engineering Director asking more in-depth about my background and my past work, and live online coding question. Invited to an on-site interview with 4 other software engineers (primarily backend folks), VP of Engineering, and Head of HR. Took about a hour each per person. They were pretty accommodating throughout the entire process and everyone was passionate about Trifacta. Definitely a smart bunch.

    Interview Questions

    • Besides the typical background questions, mostly whiteboarding. They asked an algorithmic question, tracking variables/objects, optimizing data flow between systems/databases, DOM elements creation/updating, and data structures.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Trifacta.

    Interview

    1) Chat with a recruiter about company, culture, etc.
    2) 1 hour phone screen with an engineer- 20 minutes of some basic background questions (“tell me about the stack you used for X project on your interview”) followed by one coding question, finally questions and chat about engineering life. Was pretty straightforward and fun.
    3) Phone convo with eng manager (learned that it was supposed to be another technical screen, but instead was just a cool conversation about Trifacta’s product, long term market strategies, and technology stack.

    4)*Not really a screen, but lunch onsite with some engineers!

    Overall, really straightforward and fun interview process.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Trifacta in January 2017.

    Interview

    I got a response back within a few days of my resume, and had the initial phone call asking about my background and experience, and telling me about the company. Then they sent me a small take-home project with a short time limit that was pretty easy. Then I had a phone/technical interview scheduled in the next few days, where they asked very obvious OOP questions. Then they asked me to code an answer to a standard algorithm / data structure type question and I got a little nervous and goofed up a little - although still managed to work it out in the end. I never heard back from them.
