    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Looker (Santa Cruz, CA) in October 2018.

    Interview

    Essentially five round interview:

    1. The first round after applying on the corporate website was an invitation to a HackerRank coding challenge. It consisted of 4 questions that pertained to basic SQL queries.

    2. The second interview consisted of a baseline phone interview--nothing too crazy. Introduction and had to define simple SQL related terms.

    3. The third interview was a technical phone interview which consisted of discussions regarding technical experiences and how one has utilized a variation of SQL or other stacks.

    4. The fourth round consisted of an in-person, 1-on-1 panel interview with 5 employees from different realms of the organization. Overall, it took about 3 hours. Everyone was super nice and the office space was incredible!

    5. The fifth and final round of interviewing consisted of a 1-on-1 interview with the SVP of the department. After that round, it took about a week to get a verbal offer, and the written one came hours later.
