    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Smartly.io (New York, NY) in February 2020.

    Interview

    The process is time consuming especially if you have a current job. Overall, the company has a great culture but ruined by those who fail to show proper etiquette. Do NOT expect ever to be able to negotiate salary no matter how talented you are. They do not display any flexibility for those that are genuine contenders. HR is rude.
