Mission: Enable the world to turn data into action!
I have been working at Optimizely full-time
work with really smart people. Open transparent culture
Usual growing pains of a mid size startup. Big customres dictating product direction pulling engineers in varying (sometimes conflicting) directions
Advice to Management
identify clear product roadmap
I applied online. I interviewed at Optimizely (San Francisco, CA) in August 2017.
Finished the phone interview, then I flew to SF for an onsite interview. The onsite interviews were 2 rounds of coding, 1 round of design, and 1 round of interview with the hiring manager. The interviewers in my coding sessions were pretty mean, and the questions they asked were marked as HARD questions in leetcode. Unfortunately I did not prepare one of the HARD questions asked and I was stumbled upon that one. The hard questions they asked are totally irrelevant to their work. The interviewers are not trained to seek what the company looks for from a candidate/software engineer - totally a waste of the company's money and time for my onsite interviews.
