  1. Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in United States

    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Discord (United States)

    Interview

    There were 3 total interviews. First was a phone screening with a hiring manager, which normally is with HR. Second was a 1 hour technical interview. Third was going to be a panel interview with some technical and some non-technical questions. After the first I heard back within a day. After the second I did not hear back for over a week and reached out. Received a canned rejection email the next day with no feedback.
    Interview

    Complete a function that processes DTLS messages to fit within a buffer size. An issue that was specific to Discord according to the interviewer.
