    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Creative Assembly.

    Interview

    Multiple Skype interviews. First interview was an introduction where I was asked about my background experience. Second interview was a replacement for the "in person" site interview. Being from overseas I could not easily make it out to their site in England. The second interview covered a more in depth technical review with C++ related questions.
