    Easy Interview

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Couchbase (New York, NY) in Oct 2022


    The FrontEnd Engineer interview consists of 3 round in total. 1 with the hiring manager, 1 with the senior engineer, 1 with the director. The interview experience throughout the process is absolutely amazing, recruiter is extremely useful.

    Behavioral interviews mainly discuss conflicts/teams and technical challenges discussing a situation and system design.
