    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at N26.

    Interview

    It took around 3 weeks in total, recruiter was very responsive throughout the process.

    Started with an HR screening interview, covering mostly my job experience. It was followed by a code challenge which is not too difficult but requires a full weekend if you want to do it right. Next step was a technical interview including a small pair-programming session; a simple problem that didn't require knowledge about specific APIs outside core Java. Last step for me was a behavioral interview with the CTO. It was a nice talk with an former ThoughtWorks consultant who definitely seems to be a great leader to work with.

    Overall it was a good experience but I have my doubts about the feedback which I think was very random. I feel like either they didn't want to disclose a real reason or they just look for people that have had the exact same problems that they did. Apart from this fact the process was good and I had a good impression of the folks working over there.
