    Average Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at PayScale (Boston, MA) in Nov 2021


    First call was with a recruiter asking about XP

    Then came a behavioral interview and info about the position with an architect.

    Last was a 2 hour technical interview over the network. I was asked technical questions about a relevant programming language for an hour, and the next hour was dedicated to solving a challenge.

    Python based questions. Programming exercise.
