    Principal Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Gliffy (San Francisco, CA) in January 2018.


    Reasonably standard process for the Bay Area:

    - Spoke with Talent Manager
    - Phone Screen/Interview with Engineering Manager
    - Onsite with a mix of seven Engineers & Managers

    While there was no dedicated programming test, the questions are definitely a mix of technical and social and professional and common sense. Be ready for a (friendly) barrage!

    Be yourself, be honest, have some good examples of your work and stories of your successes.
