    IOS Senior Developer-Vorstellungsgespräch

    Angebot angenommen
    Positive Erfahrung
    Durchschnittl. Gespräch

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 4 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im April 2020 bei Blinkist (Berlin).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    The whole interview process took place online given the current situation with COVID-19.
    There were several steps in the process, from talking to Talent Acquisition, the hiring manager, the CTO, product owners, designers, developers to having a coffee chat with different people from the team and the circle. There was also a coding challenge that I was asked to do and then iterate on it as part of the technical interview.
    I found all the talks very professional but also warm and friendly. One thing that really stood out from the other companies that I was in process with was the transparency and openness to all the topics and questions that I had. The core values of the company is something that also got my interest even higher.
    Now in my first moths of working at Blinkist, I still share the same positive feeling that I had during the interview process.

    • No unexpected questions. What I liked is that they were not focused on asking definitions but more practical and logic questions.   Frage beantworten

    Bewerbung

    Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 3 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert bei Blinkist (New York, NY (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I was contacted by the team lead responsible for the position I was applying for. I had to complete a small test with questions relevant to the field (I had two full days to submit my answers). Then I was invited to an interview at the office and when I couldn't make it to the initially scheduled appointment because I got sick, I was offered multiple alternative options, which was great, considering my fairly restricted availability at the time. I went through three interviews on two different visits to the office: one with the talent acquisition manager, one with the team lead and one with another member of my team. Later that day, I received an email saying I was invited to the last round, which was a lovely lunch with my future team. I believe we were a match and I got an offer to join the team via email on that same day. The interview process was very clear and well-organized. The whole hiring process lasted about a month, from the initial submission of my application to receiving an offer (NB: I can imagine it's shorter for candidates available on more than one day of the week during the interview period). I am very satisfied with the whole experience and can't think of anything that can be done to improve it. This is a company that takes working students as seriously as full-time employees and that's not something you see very often.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    It was a screening call supposed to last one hour to get to know me and my experience. After about 20 minutes the interviewer started asking me about how would I improve the app, which I had never used. As I had never used the app (they did not recommend to take a look and never in an interview this had been expected), I couldn't respond so the interviewer decided the interview was over and off course I did not make it to the next round.

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 2 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Oktober 2020 bei Blinkist (Neu-Delhi (Indien)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Applied online and got a mail for the first round.
    First round was overall good , nothing technical just some behavioural questions along with the role discussion.
    At the end of the interview I was told that I will be given a task to complete in 7 days.
    Task was to retrieve an apk file from the android code by updating the files . Then use that apk to automate the login functionality. I was given an option either to write in kotlin or java.
    I used java and had used maven+testNg framework.
    I sent the code and got a positive feedback for the next technical interview. Till this point everything was good.
    Now for this round there were 2 interviewers who were least interested , they didn't even ask my introduction.
    They started by introducing themselves and then for the first 15 mins they asked me about questions related to the task and then for another 15 mins they had asked manual testing questions.
    Interview ended in 30 mins which was a surprise.
    I had answered almost every question and was expecting a positive feedback. BUT after 2 days I got a rejection mail stating other candidates were a better fit than me .

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Applied online and got a reply from a senior QA member for a 'knowing candidate better' interview call.
    There was a link to schedule google meet call from your side.

    Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

    • The interview was nothing technical and the interviewer asked very general questions:
      First he introduced himself and little bit about the QA team then following questions were asked:

      Why did you apply for this job
      What did you like about the company
      Your daily work schedules etc.
      Number of days required to join and salary expectations

      Two days after the interview call , got a mail from the same guy saying ‘we can't find a match for you with Blinkist right now’.
      I did ask the reason for rejection but he replied simply that he can’t give citing legal reasons, that was beyond understandable
      I don’t understand on what basis my profile was selected in the first place and then the basis of rejection too

      The company boast a lot in their careers page, but seems not to care about the ethics for the interviews
      I believe it is up to the interview liking you or not.   Frage beantworten

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    The process was very fast and smooth. A few days after I applied I got invited for the first round.

    The first interview was a 45 min cultural fit conversation with the Talent Acquisition Lead. He gave me immediate feedback and explained the company values, the role, the process and what I should expect.

    The second interview was a 90 minute call with the hiring manager and one of the co-founders. This call was about the role, the challenges and more context about the project.

    The last round were a series of 30-min interviews with different stakeholders that are involved in the project.

    The whole process (from sending my application to receiving the offer) took less than a month, which I find really impressive, especially considering that the whole process was held remotely.

    Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

    • -Where do you see yourself in 2-3 years?
      -What responsibilities will I prioritize?
      -What typical questions do you ask prospects during discovery calls?   Frage beantworten
