    Research Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Grammarly (San Francisco, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process with Grammarly is definitely one of the best interview experiences I have ever had. I got the letter about their position from my advisor and the jobs they are doing look really attractive to me. I was asked to do a coding task for a practical NLP problem, after passing the task I had a video interview with the CEO directly. The CEO is very open-minded and the questions asked were basically behavior questions. After the interview, we decided that we had a good match in values and I was invited to visit their office in SF. In their SF office I met their VPs and gave a talk about my thesis. I also had a round of technical interview with one of their engineers. All the people I met were sharp and super helpful. The CEO is a very determined person and we talked a lot about the plans of the company, all the experiences I have shows that the company has a great team atmosphere and has plenty of talented people.

    They offered me a premium version of their product to help me understand their product. They even offered me a free trip to New York to help me make my decisions after the interview. Through the New York trip, the head of the research lab (he is an excellent researcher in our field) scheduled everything for me.

    To sum up, this is definitely one of the best companies I have ever met in my interviews. The company shows great respect for its interviewees, the CEO is a very determined person who clearly know what he is doing and what he is planning to do. All the people in the company are hard-working, talented and helpful. I can see great potential in the company and I strongly believe in the future of the company. While I decided to take another offer due to my current status, I am still looking forward to working with them some day in the future.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions asked in the technical round: word break, n-gram and its smoothing techniques, cross-validation. All are practical questions for NLP tasks.   1 Answer
