Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at uShip.com (Austin, TX) in April 2017.

Interview

Interview Process was very professional and streamlined once again. Just like any top notch company, though these folks are start up they are pretty good. So the interview process starts with initial email from HR and then after agreeing for a time slot, HR then sets up the interview with one of their Dev teams, for me here i had both the team members for the initial phone verbal interview.
On the phone interview day which lasted about 30 minutes, was asked few basic general Android questions which i will post below.

After clearing the first phone verbal interview, the interviewers were clear on what next rounds would be and they said it would a android app assignment project and then a onsite interview for 2.5 hrs.
All too excited to hear as it sounds.

After submitting the android app, i got the result a week later that i was not considered for the role further. It was again another shocking after previous week and i had expected to make it onsite.
Anyways i don't regret it and it was another great experience would have loved to work with the folks @ uShip but its okay.
