I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Trion Worlds (San Francisco, CA) in March 2017.
1st round interview with Head of HR just asking about my roles and what I was looking for in my next position. Interview stopped short when we got to salary range. (Said cap was at 50K, I love gaming but 80K minimum for this role seemed obvious to me so I declined)
