    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BlaBlaCar in July 2016.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume online and received an invitation to take an analytical test. Some of the questions could be interpreted many different ways, but most of them were straightforward. Make sure to brush up on agile project management concepts (scrum), mobile platforms and coding languages.
    Once I passed the test, I was invited to submit a video of myself answering a few basic questions. I'm assuming this is a way to quickly see if the candidate has the required English skills and would be a good fit. While the platform they provide is really easy to use, this is not candidate friendly because you are not given the opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the company, the position and how everything is structured.
    I was then invited to do a Skype interview with one of their recruiters (they are flexible with remote interviews) that lasted about an hour. She was very nice and was looking to learn more about my background - no behavioral questions were asked at that point. I was given a chance to ask questions at the end of the interview. From her answers, the company seems to be growing fast. It definitely offers interesting opportunities and great culture, but it also seems to have a few growing pains like team structure and processes around feedback and performance evaluations.
    I was told I would hear back from the recruiter a few days after the interview, but didn't hear anything for a week at which point I followed up. I was then told I'd hear back in another week, which didn't happen. At that point, other interesting opportunities had come up and I wasn't able to keep waiting any longer.
