    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Wikimedia Foundation in August 2019.

    Interview

    Great process, clear communications. Contacted 72 hours after submitting CV and schedule Hangout phone interview w/ recruiter the following week. Recruiter reviewed job responsibilities and expectations. Remote 1 day a week. Not moving forward, unfortunately pay doesn’t commensurate w/ my experience and Bay Area living. Wish Pay wasn’t an issue, great mission and value to society.
