History

Badoo was launched in 2006, by a small international group of young, forward thinking programmers and tech entrepreneurs. Their vision was to use the most advanced technologies available to create an elegantly modern, fast and easy way for people to meet new people in their area - and have fun doing it. The scope would be global, but adapted to local needs. It worked.

Badoo now has the majority of its operations in London. It is currently available in 46 languages via Badoo.com and various social/mobile platforms such as iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Facebook & Desktop application.

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Delhi (India)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Badoo (New Delhi (India)).

    Interview

    The company contacted me. The first round involved 2 interviews with 2 PMs.
    Second round involved assignment

    Third round involved interview with Product Lead.

    The interview process is quite structured. But they expect you to know everything that they do i.e. you should have worked in Badoo to get a job in Badoo which kinda becomes a catch 22.
    The concept of learning about the domain on the job is not something that they are fine with.
    The selection process is more abt finding how a candidate is not suitable for the role instead of seeing how the candidates suits the role and if he/she can learn the missing things on the job
