Interview

Applied, had a phone, and was not moved forward with. Felt very confident but must have not fit their criteria. Wished I'd at least have more than a phone interview, since I had so much more to share about myself and felt that I was the perfect candidate for the role.

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Twitch (Singapore)

Interview

The recruiter reached out via LinkedIn for the role, followed by the hiring manager and a loop interview. The overall process was fine, and the recruiter was friendly and professional. However, I had a really negative experience with one of the sales heads in the interview loop. At the beginning of the call, this interviewer wasn't sure how to pronounce my name, which was fair because my name wasn't a common one in his country. However, instead of asking me how he should call me etc., he just said - "I'll short form your name as xxx, this is how we ***** (country) like to do it" in a tone that made me felt uncomfortable, which sounded like he's not interested in knowing. Of course, I didn't feel respected, but since it's an interview, I did not say anything about it and just tried to keep a smile on my face. The following conversation didn't go any better. He's obviously not engaged in the conversation and just tried to read out the questions (I think provided by recruiter and standard set of questions). And during the Q&A time, I was trying to get him engaged by asking standard questions like "what kind of challenges and opportunities do you see in your region?". I thought this is a pretty question for an interviewee to ask and it's up to how detailed or overviews the interviewer to answer. But his answer once again shocked me, which I still remembered - he said he's not going to answer any of these questions because I am working in a competitor company which I am not. I wondered if he even looked at my resume. So it's not a surprise to me that I didn't get the role.

Interview

I've applied through Twitch career page. Once you're selected, they send you an email describing the interview process and give you a link to an codility online assessment. In my case it was 3 problems with 100 min time limit. The first one a data structure and algorithm problem. The second one was more tech limited, since you're able to do it only in a small set of languages. And the third one was to fix a bug in an existing code. After passing the code assessment, I received an email setting up an phone screen with a recruiter. The recruiter didn't show up. I've emailed him and re answered 3 hours later, saying that he didn't show up because he had a personal emergency. This is totally understandable, even though I, myself, had already taken part of interview processes and know that for emergencies, a backup can take it over. In the same email, he also asked me about my visa status, which I didn't have applying for a USA position. And he said that I could not continue because they were not sponsor visas, only taking existing ones, which I also understand. However, when you apply for the positions, you inform your visa status, your country and your citizenship, in a form, which I did correctly (I didn't lie or anything, I'm not stupid). So this wasn't suppose to happen. Also my resume had the information about my current country all over the place. Even though the interview was not difficult, it required a lot of preparation (do you remember data structure and algorithms that you've seen in the university 6 years ago?), because I don't know the level of the questions before hand. Once I got accepted I studied even more, because there well tech interviews also in the next steps. I felt really disrespected and frustrated.

Interview

I had a phone screen followed by an interview with a member of the team. Received rejection email a couple days after. From initial application to result, the process took about 30 days. Overall I really enjoyed the interview process. The member of the team that I had the opportunity to speak with was really friendly and personable, and gave me room to talk through my thoughts.

Interview Questions
  • Why are you interested in this role? How much do you know about Twitch? A couple scenario questions about how I would approach a security incident.

Interview

Standard HR screening then a phone screen. The phone screen was a mess as they expect you write fully functional code as if you had an IDE but without any of the help an IDE provides. On top of that the interviewer offered absolutely no help except repeatedly saying "try more test cases" after I tried 8 different test cases but couldn't figure out what was a 1 line error and refused to move on from that point. It also seemed like he made no effort in preparing for the interview as he offered no help at all except expecting perfect code with unit tests in 20minutes.

Interview

It’s a straightforward process: you speak with the recruiter, hiring manager, and then have the onsite with the team. The recruiters were very quick to respond and I had a pleasant experience with them. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same about the actual design team. They were cold and unwelcoming, and most of the onsite felt forced, awkward, and, quite honestly, uncomfortable. There were moments throughout the day where the team and hiring manager would act unprofessionally and disrespectfully, and speaking to some of the teammates was truly like pulling teeth. I don’t consider myself at all to be an unpleasant or difficult person to talk to, so this was an anomaly for me - a testament to the questionable culture growing inside this company. I’d sincerely recommend Twitch to invest in employee behavioral training, and for future applicants to reconsider if Twitch is the right stepping stone in their career.

Twitch has switched from own recruiters to the Amazon processes. This makes it a pretty demanding and also rewarding experience. The process went smoothly, I spoke to the hiring manager and then got into round two where I was interviewed based on Amazon's leadership principles. If you prepare your past experiences in context of the principles well, you shouldn't have a problem.
