  1. Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in United States

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Stripe (United States)

    Interview

    Overall bad experience. Most of the interviewers seem disinterested, no enthusiasm when talking about the company. After the interviews the recruiter ghosted, the only feedback was a copy/paste reject over a week later. Emails asking for feedback or a follow-up call were all ignored.

    Coding Round
    The interviewer was fair enough. I just didn’t complete enough parts of the question. The frustrating part was 126 lines of markdown explaining the question. Unreasonable to expect someone to parse through that long of a problem description for a 30min problem.

    Given a String, split it into major parts separated by special char '/'. For each major part that’s split by '/', we can further split it into minor parts separated by '.'.

    # ### Example 1
    # str = stripe.com/payments/checkout/customer.john.doe
    # minor_parts = 2

    # after Part 1 compression
    # =>
    # s4e.c1m/p6s/c6t/c6r.j2n.d1e

    # after Part 2 compression
    # =>
    # s4e.c1m/p6s/c6t/c6r.j5e


    # ### Example 2
    # Given:
    # str = www.api.stripe.com/checkout
    # minor_parts = 3

    # (after Part 1 compression)
    # =>
    # w1w.a1i.s4e.c1m/c6t

    # (then after Part 2 compression)
    # =>
    # w1w.a1i.s7m/c6t


    Integration Round
    They supply two JSON files containing requestlog of charges made on Stripe API. You write a function to test them by replaying the request to a live API.
    Part 1 you compare the HTTP status code
    Part 2 you need to record and compare certain ID’s between requests. At first this seemed simple enough, wrote the code to do this, it wasn’t working so start debugging. Interviewer doesn’t appear to know what’s going on either. With 2 min left says something about the type of ID being different, as in you get say a Customer ID vs Charge ID. This wasn’t mentioned in the problem description or in the part 2 description.

    Manager Round
    This was quite annoying, the managers face was about ¾ in the camera. Like dude you ever zoomed before? He was constantly yawning during the interview and asking (unrelated) follow-up questions to give the appearance that he gave a crap.
