    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Headfirst Companies (Washington, DC) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Job description was very thorough and clear. There were 2-3 rounds and the entire process took a little more than a week. First round interview was a 30 minute video interview. Second round was an hour long panel interview with 3 members of the team that one would be working with. 3rd round was a phone call with the manager to just go over the role one more time and allow for any clarifying questions. Best part of the process was the transparency and candor throughout.
