I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Metromile (San Francisco, CA) in February 2016.
I was headhunted for this position through Hired.com. The company definitely values skill over a degree. I only have a high school diploma, but a ton of programming experience I was able to showcase. The process took a few weeks; each interaction was spaced out over a couple business days which consisted of an initial phone call, an over-the-phone technical interview, an onsite technical interview, and a final interview with the CTO over-the-phone.
The onsite technical interview ramped up in difficulty quickly. They were nothing outrageous, and each interviewer was very happy to clear up details and any questions I had. All the questions I asked, I felt, were tailored to my experience. I was able to answer most questions with a good balance of speed, efficiency and style. I also feel like personality played a big part in the hiring process; you really have to be able to get along with the team members and I feel as though striking up conversation and making a few jokes helped.
