Advice to Management
Keep doing what you're doing. Trust the people you've hired to make the right decisions. Also monitory burnout better among the veteran employees.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Doximity (San Francisco, CA) in January 2017.
Phone screen with recruiter
Home assignment - Rails app (3 tasks)
Onsite - 2 rounds - 2 engineering managers
Engineering Director call
It took 3 days to complete the home assignment. The engineering mgr/dir reviewed the pull requests and 2 days later I received onsite invitation. Impressively fast turn around after that. The recruiter was very knowledgeable and quick to answer any questions. Onsite wasn't heavy on algorithm, it was more of knowledge on ruby, rails and database.
