    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Checkr (San Francisco, CA) in December 2016.


    Initial phone screen - nothing crazy, mostly my background and understanding the company
    On site - 3 coding exercises, a whiteboard architecture discussion, and a culture interview with HR

    The whole process is very fast! They will get back to you with a offer/rejection very quickly. Checkr also pushes you to accept the offer very quickly as well, so be prepared to make your decision.

    Interview Questions

    • Coding challenges: Build a RESTful API from scratch, parsing algorithms, refactoring.   Answer Question
    • Whiteboard a basic microservices architecture   Answer Question
