    Average Interview

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ThoughtWorks (London, England, England) in Jan 2019


    Three stage interview. Online remote coding, in person half day which consisted of a coding task and also a discussion based task. Last but not least an interview with a member of the senior management team.

    They asked if I had paired before and whether I had used TDD methods of programming.
