    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Algorithmia (Seattle, WA) in May 2021.

    Interview

    Following my referral from a recruiter, I had a 1:1 phone screen with a representative from HR, followed by a take-home assignment, which should take a few hours. Had I advanced past that stage, there would have been a group technical interview, followed by a live-coding session, and then a couple interviews with the VP and co-founder.

    While the overall experience was worthwhile, I can't say it was positive with respect to the take-home assignment. Though the exercise was fairly straightforward (at least I thought so), it does take several hours, and you will be provided with absolutely no feedback if your solution does not pass their tests, just a pass/fail from HR. This will no doubt leave a sour taste if you're the type who appreciates understanding why/how their architecture fails, and values learning from their mistakes.

    Overall, I can only recommend interviewing here if you feel very strongly about the role on the table; otherwise it may not be worth your time.

    Interview Questions

    • The take-home assignment was fairly simple for anyone with a bit of experience in multi-threading/parallel processing. You have the option of using several languages to implement it, which is great, but unfortunately the sample data they provide is minimal and doesn't stress your solution very much. The platform is also a bit cumbersome as far as rapid testing/prototyping goes, at least in the compiled language I used (I chose to develop locally rather than use their IDE because of this; perhaps that counted against me).   Answer Question
