    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at DraftKings (United States) in Jan 2021

    Interview

    Applied through a recruiter on LinkedIn, got a HackerRank challenge that you need to finish in 90 mins, spoke to another recruiter, and then had a final interview round on zoom with 4 different people, all assessing different skills.
    Everyone was nice and on time, didn't experience any negative things people mentioned on Glassdoor.
    Really passionate about the company so I did not hesitate to accept the offer!
