    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Acquia (Boston, MA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I submitted an application online and was contacted by the HR lead within a couple of days. In the first week of applying, I had an initial phone screening and a Zoom interview with my prospective manager.

    The following week, I had an on-site interview with various people in the team as well as key stakeholders in other functions and was so impressed by how passionate and genuine everyone was. Each interview was approx. 45 mins for a total of ~4 hours and each interviewer was well prepared and really friendly. The questions focussed mainly on previous experience, technical skills and some behavioral questions (ie. biggest challenge and how you overcame it) to help assess cultural fit.

    The hiring process was really speedy - taking about 2.5 weeks from application to job offer. My HR contact really humanized the whole process by being responsive, sincere and transparent - I was never left in the dark as to where I stood and the next steps.

    In the end, I was offered a role and am so excited to be joining the team!

    Interview Questions

    • My advice for interview prep: do lots of research that goes beyond just a top-line understanding the company and its products (ie. read the blog to find out about new products/future trends and read client case studies to understand how Acquia’s products add value) to help you better frame your responses. Above all, make sure you let your passion shine through!   Answer Question
