    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Buffer (San Francisco, CA) in July 2019.

    Interview

    Completed online application and had a screen interview by video.

    Put off by the screening interview. On the call the person mostly spoke and told me about herself and the remote culture of the company rather than the other way around. When I asked more to dig into company specifics the answers were all fairly negative towards senior management and the company's direction / planning.

    Have always been a fan of buffer, but this put the company into a completely different light than my experiences with them previously.
