    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at OpenTable (San Francisco, CA) in Jun 2021

    Interview

    Straight forward interview experience. Recruiter and hiring manager were very communicative and clear about what to expect in each round. I am very impressed especially by how much each helped prepare me for each round of the interview. By far, the best experience and guidance I have had compared to any other interview experience.

    1. Call with recruiter.
    2. Call with hiring manager.
    3. Take home assignment and present to panel of stakeholders.
    4. Final round with 1:1's with each stakeholder.
