Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zendesk (San Francisco, CA) in November 2014.

Interview

Had submitted my resume through Linkedin and was contacted by a recruiter who did the initial screening of what my interests are and if my skillset matches the requirement, though I didn't have any experience in node.js/ruby on rails(their primary stack), they were pretty open about it, which is a big plus. Was scheduled an initial phone screen with the hiring manager who outlined me about the products and the goals of the team in particular and a simple algorithmic question of removing duplicate words in a string with a minor tweak, solved in any programming language. I solved it in python and was immediately scheduled for an onsite for the following week.
The onsite was pretty straight forward, the HR briefed about the interview schedule and had 2 technical interviews followed by a system design interview and a general chat with the hiring manager.

Interview Questions
