    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Cyan.

    Interview

    The scheduling was very accomodating. Interviewed with the team and the President of the company. It was technically challenging. People came across as friendly and helpful. HR seemed friendly, well informed and responsive. The building is new and expanding with free snacks. Walkthrough the facility was nice and saw people at their terminals or discussing in meeting rooms. Well equipped joint.
