    Application

    I applied through an employee referral The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Bolt (San Francisco, CA) in Mar 2020

    Interview

    First round with hiring manager/recruiter, next round was multiple 1:1's with an AE, a BDR, the team lead, and AE manager, followed by a prospecting exercise and then an offer! Everyone was super friendly and accommodating considering the interview was all remote due to COVID.
