    Interview

    I applied online and was asked to complete a coding assignment at home to discussed when I went in for the in person interview. Then I had an interview at BBC which lasted all day. There were three different segments of interviews the "technical" where they went over how I did on the coding assignment, a more behavioral/general knowledge interview, and a teamwork assignment. Overall it was a pretty nice interview experience and they provided food :) One thing to note is that if you don't get an offer, they never tell you.
