    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at BitTorrent (San Francisco, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Got a referral from someone currently working there. Spoke to internal recruiter on the phone - no introductions, or questions about my interest in the company. Just how my JavaScript was. Then sent me a code challenge with insufficient instruction and a request to build something with a deprecated API (head of engineering was out on vacation).
    I handed in the challenge and was told they would get back to me with an answer, shortly. Never heard from them again.

    Interview Questions

    • 'What are your JavaScript skills like on a scale from 1-10?'   Answer Question
