    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Octagon (United States)

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly simple. I was contacted by a recruiter for the initial screening and then ultimately had an interview with the hiring manager. Super casual interview - a few behavioral questions, looking for a bit about my background.
