    I have been working at Kuali full-time (More than 3 years)


    I have a company that I believe in the product and the people. Hard to find a place where you love both so much, but Kuali is that place.


    Like any start-up, there will be times when things change or don't go as planned.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Kuali.


    The interview process at Kuali was a very bizarre one to me. I applied online and heard back relatively quickly with a coding challenge to do. They specified the challenge should be done within 2 hours of opening it and that I should send them a link to it when it was done. I replied asking if I could wait to do the challenge until the weekend because I had a lot going on but never heard back. I ended up doing the challenge over the weekend and sent it out and heard back awhile later from someone else that they want to continue. I had a variety of interviews which included a cultural fit and some “paired programming” sections. The technical interviews were a bit weird as the title of pair programming makes you think it’s actually working with someone else. In actuality, it’s someone asking you questions and watching you code and not really providing any feedback or adding anything. The cultural interviews were a group hangout where people asked you cultural questions and just general questions about yourself. They seemed friendly but it was also somewhat chaotic and felt a little disorganized.

    Throughout the process I had to continuously ping the recruiters to set up times and provide links because things just weren’t happening (like I’d have an interview scheduled and no link to where it would take place numerous times). At the end of it all, after spending so much time over the course of a few weeks talking with them, I got rejected via a super simple email that provided no details or anything of use that I could take to grow for the future. This was a bummer to me and is a practice too many companies have that’s just not a great experience.

    With all of that being said, I don’t feel like this is a bad company and I’m not bitter by the interactions or anything. I think it could have been done better but it also could be a lot worse.
