Lead UX Developer

🐟 Web devs - I'm currently part of a 2nd interview panel this week for a frontend dev post internally but I also like to dedicate some time outside of work to review and provide feedback for portfolios, github projects, open source contribs in preparation for any upcoming interviews you may have. If you're up for that, give me a shout in the comments and I'll DM you.

  1. Staff Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sydney
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GitHub (Sydney)

    Interview

    The process started when I applied for the role. Responses were quite prompt. Interviewers were courteous. But It was negative experience for me due to the careless recruiter. Even after emailing them to get an update they didn't give me any response. After some googling I came to know that this is the typical GitHub recruitment experience. If you don't get selected, they don't have the minimum courtesy to let you know about the rejection, feedback is a far cry. This is very disappointing. I went for this role because I thought GitHub had great culture. When I see the Recruiters treating people and their time like trash, it makes me rethink my opinion.

Three things GitHub did to de-bro the design of its coders’ space! Step one: Escape the man cave Step two: lighten, brighten, soften Step three: Add room for introverts "...there are now cozy spaces designed like residential living rooms. They’ve also built a room for nursing mothers, a prayer room, and gender-inclusive bathrooms. In the library, there are even sculptures of female trailblazers in computing..."
