    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at MyFitnessPal (San Francisco, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online directly and got a call from the recruiter the very next day. She scheduled a phone screen with the hiring manager. The interview was basically a fitment check and not a technical round. I was allowed to ask as many questions as possible about the team, role and the company. What followed next was a coding exercise for which 2 days would be given. I have to submit fully functional code within that time frame. It was a Rest web services exercise and I took the weekend to code for it.

    Next based on the performance I was invited for a round of onsite interviews. The interviews were mostly panel with 2 members. The first was a technical design round where I was presented a problem and asked to write the design and code for it. The next was a behavioral round, the 3rd was code review (of the previously done exercise) with 10 members of the team, everyone throwing questions randomly. The last one was an interview with the VP of engineering and the hiring manager.

    The recruiter mailed me back in couple of days saying that the skill set is not quite a match.
