    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Smithsonian (Washington, DC) in August 2017.

    Interview

    There were two rounds of interviews. The first was a very general conversation so they could get to know my background, the second was more specific behavioral and technical questions related to the role. Once they reached out about the first round interview, it was just a few weeks until I had received an offer.
