    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bangalore
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    I applied through an employee referral The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Confluent (Bangalore) in Jul 2020


    For me the interviews were all held remotely given COVID situation. There were fitment assessment, coding and system design rounds.
    Confluent's interview process was the best I have ever seen. The HR keeps you informed at all stages about the timelines and expectations. The interviewers are really smart. Questions are carefully chosen and well thought of.

    The great thing about these interviews was it was an exercise of exploring what me and the interviewer could achieve in 45 minute given a problem. It was nothing like a typical interview where interviewer would judge you based on a question they had already seen.

    I really enjoyed the interview process and kudos to the talent/people team for making it such a delightful process.

    Questions are difficult and not standard LC questions but you get them right with strong fundamentals and team work with the interviewer.
