    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at


    I had a phone screen with the recruiter, John, who was very friendly and talked to me more about the company and the role. Next, I had to prepare a quick review of an app that I frequently use to two product designers, Hyejin and Anthony, and talk about what I liked, didn't like, and then what I would prioritize if I had full control over the project.

    The last step was to work on a design challenge for a snowboard app and present it to a group panel. Afterwards, I was meeting individually with a variety of folks I'd be working with and answering their questions. This interview lasted about 4 hours.
