    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Orchard in July 2020.

    Interview

    Their technical interviews are realistic and pragmatic. No obscure leetcode-style problems or algorithms, you're graded on your ability to solve the type of problem you'd solve on the job.

    One of my interviews was with the CTO, who is one of the most off-putting people I've ever talked to. He dialed in 7 minutes late, ate on camera, clearly was not listening to anything I said and interrupted our talk to take a phone call. He actually took the call and spoke to someone else with the microphone muted for a few minutes before resuming the conversation with me. Our interview lasted an hour but he was absent for at least 10 minutes and was completely disengaged the rest of the time. If you told me he was actively interviewing for another role and stopped our call to hear an offer, I'd believe you.

    The CTO has an aloof aesthetic he either can't help or tries very hard to keep up so as to appear smarter. Either way, I can't imagine working with someone like that, much less having them dictate the direction of the company.

    It's a shame because literally everyone else I spoke to during the process (recruiters, engineers, product managers, technical managers) were wonderful kind people who I would have liked to work with.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to create an endpoint on an existing API that would make a call to an external API and then transform the response. A pretty realistic work scenario.   Answer Question
