I have been working at Dosh full-time (Less than a year)
Good Management, Good Perks, Good mobility
Too many meetings, to be honest
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Dosh (Austin, TX) in August 2018.
Had a couple of phone interviews to start off. They were great, both had a wonderful time balance between coding questions and questions you can ask the interviewer to learn more about the company/infrastructure stack.
The onsite interviews were for the most part radically different. They were technical challenges with very little testing of personality and fitting for the particular role and left 3-5 minutes for your own questions. Not really any different from what you'd expected from Big N company like Amazon or Google, which might not be something you are expecting from a start up like Dosh.
Beyond that though, there was really only one interview that did not sit well with me. Reviewer was intense the whole interview, made me anxious the whole hour I was scheduled. The reviewer asked what I would consider a derivative to a common dynamic programming problem, but I had trouble understanding at first what they were looking for since they never wrote down the question or an example of input/output until later in the interview, so it took longer than what I considered necessary to finish. My first attempt was an iterative solution that was using a bottom-up approach that was missing an element when I tried to run through the program which was not surprising since I was sweating bullets at this point in the interview.
I decided to switch to the recursive top-down approach in the end since it was a little easier for me to whiteboard and might get me out of the speed bump I was having with my first approach. Told the interviewer my thoughts and that it was a bit more efficient with our time left and the interviewer replied with "no, its not more efficient its the only solution", which is straight up wrong, but I wasn't going to pick a fight with my interviewer. It left me wondering if they just googled for a question they found interesting but never really checked all the possible solutions before the interview.
All in all, Dosh is still somewhat new to hiring full-time engineers so I'd give them a break in this department. I hope they can work out the kinks for their next interviews.
