    Average Interview


    2 rounds of interview. One was with a Principal Engineer and a second one with the Engineering Manager. The interviews lasted around 30-45 minutes each and was mostly technical. I would say try to be familiar with what they have in the job description and provide examples based on your experience at a previous job.
