Does anyone work at Confluent inc. and willing to provide a referral? I’m interested in the People Ops Generalist role. I have a background working in both startup and corporate settings on the People team with coordination and TA operations background! Actively looking for new opportunities right now as I was impacted by the RIF at my previous employer.

    The culture is pretty open. You will get lots and lots of opportunity to grow and learn. Good tech being used. Awesome peers. Remote work. Compensation offered.


    Cannot think of any cons as of now.

    1. Frontend Software Engineer Interview

      Anonymous Employee in London, England
      No Offer
      Negative Experience
      Average Interview

      I applied online. I interviewed at Confluent (London, England)


      Three technical stages (HackerRank 2 questions, frontend discussion and some live coding, live coding algorithmic challenge), followed by a final "cultural fit" stage. The cultural stage was not a cultural stage. After passing three technical stages I was rejected with a generic email. I had to chase up to ask for feedback and the reason was I was assumed to be not technically component enough during the cultural fit stage. The interviewer has a PhD and I am self thought, hence the assumption. It seems like a very unfair process since after passing three technical stages you are rejected based on an assumption during a "culture fit" interview. Then you get a generic email with no explanation. Speaks poorly of the company.

      Asked to review the UX and UI of a website, recursive algorithmic live challenge. Why have you moved jobs so quickly? How do you make sure you cover all computer science fundamentals?
