After submitting my resume, I heard from the recruiting team and I was asked to have a video interview with a data scientist. The interview was rescheduled twice. The interviewer was really rude and lack of patience when I did the case.

Interview

30 mins coding interview. A simple question about data manipulation in Python. The question isn't hard, but the interviewer skipped over the example, so it was hard to understand the concept being asked about.

Interview

Background: I have a PhD in statistics from one of the top universities, have 10 years of DS/ML industry experience, been a technical lead at a top 3 FANG company for 5 years and before my current job I worked for a mid-size company for another 5 years. I applied online for a DS position at Twitter and was contacted by a Twitter recruiter the next day. Had an informational/technical interview with the hiring manager, he was very friendly and honest which I liked and this made me more motivated. Same day the recruiter said the hiring manager liked me and they want to move forward to the next step. I had an interview with an SDE and one DS (both told me they had about 1 year of experience). I had one coding question (SDE/Algorithm/Design) type of question which according to the hiring manager and the JD was not supposed to be part of interview (this was a pure Senior DS Analytics role and not SDE or even ML Engineering role), and one DS question. DS question was easy (power analysis for experimentation) and I managed to fully solve the coding question but not as a SDE with the most optimum algorithm/system design solution. Two days later I got a generic email from Twitter that they are not interested in moving forward while I thought the interview went pretty well and other than algorithm/system design I managed to answer all questions and even fully answered the coding part! Also while interviewing with Twitter, I was interviewing with two other top five IT companies for a lead IC and one DS manager role and got offer from both of them so I was a bit shocked and disappointed with how my case was handled with Twitter. To be honest I still think Twitter is a great company but they need to use more senior(experienced) people for interviews. Also I cannot be 1005 sure but recently I have seen a lot of grey areas and "other considerations" happening at IT companies based on the gender and racial factors which is not fair and pleasant.

Interview Questions
  • Q1) Coding for SDE roles (algorithm/system design/optimization) Q2) Power analysis for A/B

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Twitter (San Francisco, CA) in Jun 2020

Interview

While I did meet some great people during this process, overall I cannot recommend the experience. The recruiters were disorganized and often failed to send critical updates unless prompted (this happened more than once, at different stages of the interview). One of the interviewers was very unfriendly and aggressive (did not smile once during the interview) -- I'm not really sure why. This individual asked exclusively behavioral questions, and I answered honestly, to the best of my ability, but it didn't seem to be what they were looking for. I also got the sense that some people on the team were unhappy. While Twitter touts their employee friendliness, my takeaway is that there is a lot of internal politics and a confrontational work environment, at least on the team I interviewed for.

Interview Questions
  • I signed a NDA so unfortunately I cannot share, but please be prepared for behavioral questions.
