    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Khan Academy in April 2016.

    Interview

    I was given a HackerRank challenge with 4 questions dealing with algorithms and CS fundamentals. After passing the test I was asked if I wanted to complete a project or do an interview over the phone. I chose the project. It's a good project that allows freedom and makes for a good conversation in the post-project interview. I passed the post-project interview and moved into the next interview. We talked about my resume and some decisions I made in past jobs and why I had made them. I was expecting to do a coding problem but instead was asked an architectural design question. It was a fair question and was very open so we could discuss different strategies but they chose not to move forward with my application after. To my knowledge, there would have been one more interview after that one before being given an offer.

    Everyone was extremely helpful during the process answering all questions I had. The engineers seemed very passionate about the product and believed in the company's goals which was nice to see.
