    Software Engineer - Customer Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Brightcove (Boston, MA) in December 2016.


    The process started with a phone call with a company recruiter who was very professional, honest, and accommodating. Next, there was a phone interview with the Director of Engineering which was very informative regarding the company and the role. Then the company was very accommodating regarding the scheduling of the onsite interview. The onsite interview consisted of 4 one on one interviews with the engineering team. The final one on one was a two hour pair programming challenge. Overall the process was a great experience and I highly recommend Brightcove.
