    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Twitter.

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out to me on LinkedIn. There were three interviews. The whole process took about 4 weeks. The first was an HR phone interview where she asked me about my background and some basic networking/Unix questions. The next round was a phone interview with hiring manager where he asked questions about my background, technical interests, projects etc. I was given a take home coding challenge. The challenge was a lot of fun to code and ended up finishing it in a couple days. A week later got a call from HR saying they liked my solution and would like to interview me onsite. Onsite interview was a set of 3 interviews of an hour each with 2 people from the team at a time. Interviewers were friendly, smart and overall was a very pleasant experience. Questions ranged from coding, OS/networking to scalability/architecture. They made an offer a week later.

    May 1 will be a happy day for Twitter employees-at least those expecting a baby. The social media site is the latest tech player to offer so-called "gender-neutral" parental leave, guaranteeing any parent up to 20 weeks of fully paid time off. Other companies that have embraced such policies include Etsy, Facebook, and Change.org.
