    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Trov in July 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process started with a 1 hour phone call with Team Lead. There were questions about clean architecture, previous projects and experiences. This was followed by a coding assignment. It had no deadlines. Once I submitted this, it was followed by two interviews both based on the coding assignment.
    The final call was with the Chief of Staff at the end of which the offer was extended.

    Server Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Danville, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Trov (Danville, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    1) Application - this had a lot more questions than what I'm accustomed to in an application, which I found initially offputting. As I progressed through the interview process, though, I appreciated having had the time to think about my answers and write my responses rather than having to improvise during an initial phone screen.
    2) Phone Call with Hiring Manager - This felt like a "get to know you" and "let us tell you about the company" call. I'm still not sure what they were evaluating at this stage.
    3) Take-Home Coding Exercise - They gave me an exercise to do at home and asked me for an estimate on when I'd finish it. I submitted a link to a repository with my code for them to look at after I was done with the exercise.
    4) Technical Interview via Video Call - There were two people interviewing me for about an hour. It felt like a pretty standard technical interview - there were some technical questions, I wrote code to answer them, etc. The thing that most stood out to me was that I had an opportunity to watch how two employees of the company interacted with each other. That was one of the best data points I've ever gotten in an interview about what a company is like to actually work at, which I thought was pretty neat.

    Android Developer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Trov in February 2017.

    Interview

    - First, there is a questionnaire to fill out. This is to see if you will be a fit.
    - Then, there is a phone screen with an android developer. This is a casual conversation, but still technical.
    - Next is a take home code challenge. This doesn't take too long, and is a lot of fun. This is where you show off your android skills. This code challenge is important for the team to gauge your technical abilities.
    - After this, there are three phone calls with other team members. During these calls you can get a feel for the culture, and there are also android questions. At the end of the last call, there was an offer.

    Overall, the interview process was great! The team was very easy to talk to, and I was excited to accept the offer. This is a remote position, and there is still a great culture here.
