    Backend Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TransferGo in April 2020.

    Interview

    The whole process consisted of four parts (some minor difference from a regular one due to Corona lock-down):
    
1) Phone Screening
    
2) Interview with VP of Engineering and one of the Team Leads

    3) Technical task

    4) Meet the team



    First part was a short call with a Talent Acquisition just to know each other a bit: like what are expectations, a reason to look for a new job etc.



    Second part was an interview between the VP of Engineering, a Team Lead and myself.

    The first part was to introduce myself shortly and to ask questions about the company and the role.

    The second part of the interview was a system design. A random topic I did not met before (they asked if I did not met the topic before) to check for a system design/engineering thinking, some algorithm knowledge etc.
    
The whole interview was very open and friendly with a lot of opportunities to ask about anything I was interested in.
I've felt that the interviewees were both strong technically and soft-skill wise and left a very good impression as a potential colleagues.

    Third part for me was a home task which was again more about designing and choosing technologies without coding. The result was a several questions to answer like “how would you solve problem A” or “how would you mitigate risk B”.

    The last part was a free form call with the team-members. We just talked about random stuff: personal experience, corona situation, team structure and company in general.
I liked the team, since I've been hired I think they liked me enough as well.

    Interview Questions

    • Design a crawler which looks for a TransferGO logo.   Answer Question

      There were several requirements and restrictions like:

      - Service should run with Docker and be scalable.
      Result: answer to questions like how to ensure access restrictions or how to solve files sharing problem between docker containers.   Answer Question
