    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Justworks.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of a pre-screen with someone who could not have been less interested in talking to me. A quick technical screen with an engineer, which was basically count the characters in a word. The onsite was 4 back to back sessions of interviews. The first session was a coding test. I met with two other engineers. I was pretty frustrated because I had already been told they were language agnostic, but they told me it had to be done in either Java or Ruby. I was pretty frustrated, and I probably should have toned that back.

    I wound up writing the answer in ruby, but we spent a lot of time dealing with syntax, instead of solving the problem.

    The next pair I met with had me talk through how I would design the MVC portion of a trello like app. It was fun, but a little vague.

    The next pair I met with was just general Q&A about the company. Finally I met with the VP of engineering. He seemed like a good guy albeit with too much on his plate.

    I didn't find out (although I could guess it) what the outcome was until nearly a week later, when I emailed my contact (who I never met) and she promptly responded with a form letter.

    Overall it felt a bit like a meat market, and there was not a real effort to get to know the candidate, and it was tough to get to know the team. It would be nice to have better follow through from the recruiters, and I'd strongly suggest some kind of lunch, instead of sitting in a loud conference room for three hours. It's also really silly to require the coding test in an arbitrary language. The idea is to talk through the problem, not spend time with syntax. From what I could tell, the engineers were a smart and fun group.
