    Software Engineering Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Roblox (San Mateo, CA) in May 2020.

    Interview

    Roblox is extremely thorough in their interview process, where Ning is the only company where I've experienced a more challenging set of interviews. Structurally the interviews were most similar to Amazon but with a greater range of hands-on coding/architecture/design exercises but no evidence of a "bar raiser". The use of an IDE for the coding exercises was a welcome change from the usual Silicon Valley "whiteboard" format and it felt like a much clearer proxy for real-world performance. One of the C++ coding exercises particularly stood out for this as the IDE/compilation loop allowed me to submit a complete solution within a very limited time frame (and where the interviewer was understanding of the limited trial-and-error required).

    To anyone considering an engineering position at Roblox: this team is looking for "navy seals" so prepare appropriately. I'd recommend reading "Hello, Startup: A Programmer's Guide to Building Products, Technologies, and Teams" especially if you're not already on a world-class team and practice intermediate(+) coding exercises in an IDE (Hackerrank or something similar) so you're well prepared (as fluent as possible in the target language) for the coding questions.
