I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at InsightSquared (Boston, MA) in July 2017.
A phone call with HR, describing fit and the role.
An intelligence test and personality test.
An on-site interview with 4 people: two managers, one BDR, and the director of people ops
Two phone calls with C levels
Overall it was a professional and fast process. (2-3 weeks) The interviewers were thoughtful and you can tell they really care about finding the right hire. They asked questions that were pretty straightforward...no curveballs really. That doesn't mean you can just come into the interview unprepared. Make sure your answers are concise, clear, and to-the-point.
