    Cons

    The culture is sometimes too collaborative and friendly and it is not clear everyone is equally pulling their weight.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Honey (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I spoke with a recruiter about the company, then had a separate phone call with the hiring manager. We then scheduled an in-person interview where I met some of the team leads. Most of the discussions were fairly high-level. We got into technical details as necessary.

    Interview Questions

    • Walk us through how you would design a chat application (e.g. Slack). What do the models look like? What endpoints? What considerations go into scaling such a system?   Answer Question
