Company Updates

  • “The acquisition will see two of the largest third-party buying and selling marketplaces — outside of Craigslist, eBay and Facebook Marketplace, of course — become a more significant threat to the incumbents. Together, the new entity will have more than 20 million monthly active users across the U.S. For consumers, the deal means they’ll no longer have to list in as many apps when looking to unload some household items, electronics, furniture or whatever else they want to sell.” - TechCrunch

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    There was an initial phone screen outsourced to Karat followed by all day onsite. Each interviewer would ask a small set of behavioral problems at the end of the technical round. It was fairly interactive and mostly medium Leetcode questions. With the exception of the last interviewer most of them were interactive and responsive and was a good learning experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Find median of list of numbers in constant time
      Backtracking / dynamic programming question to find path out of maze
      Autocomplete search implementation etc.   Answer Question
