Bewerbung

Ich habe mich über einen Personalvermittler beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 3 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Juli 2016 bei Elastic.

Vorstellungsgespräch

I was really excited to apply to Elastic, having been interested in their products and using them for a while. This role seemed to line up well with my skills and experience, so I thought it would be enough to at least get an interview. Initially, I got no response to my application, so I solved a few of their product issues on GitHub and reached out to a recruiter on LinkedIn, which was enough to get an initial conversation with a recruiter.

I then had a technical interview, in which I was asked about my programming language experience, among other things. The job description had mentioned "experience with languages X or Y" as being a requirement, and I had X. But this interview included a lot of questions about languages Y and Z (the latter was not even mentioned in the job posting). Despite this, the conversation seemed to go pretty well. I heard the following week that they had gone with some others that had more experience. I never even reached the stage of answering technical or code questions, unfortunately.

If the job description had been more in-line with the questions I actually ended up being asked, I would have changed my preparation for the interview dramatically. Despite my enthusiasm for the company and its products, the interview process left a bad taste in my mouth.

    Interview process is relatively long (7 steps, 4 technical) you talk to different people from the company one-on-one for 45 minutes Although it is long, it is exciting too: you have a chance to talk with very smart people, understand company's culture and priorities.

    Initial call with recruiter after submitting resume. It was pleasant conversation. Found him very technical for a recruiter.

    I think he was trying to get to know more about my background and distributed systems experience.

    Since I was excited about Elastic opportunity I asked for couple of weeks to prepare for the interview. Didn't get enough time to prepare though, had tough time at work and family.

    Series of interviews with engineers from Spain, France and US.
    All of them were very humble, great engineers. Core open source contributors, one of them was Apache Software Foundation member.

    Overall felt like a really engineering driven organization. I enjoyed the conversations.
    Last two rounds were with Engineering Manager and VP of Engineering. Both were checking for cultural fit. Got to know more about engineering culture and priorities for the organization. Finally compensation discussion with recruiter which lasted less than 20 minutes :)

    Felt really good about overall scheduling, given that I and interviewers were in different time zones.

    Ich habe mich auf Empfehlung eines Mitarbeiters beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 6 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Dezember 2017 bei Elastic (New York, NY (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Interview process started with a typical HR/corporate recruiter screening. From there, the process was broken out into 6 interviews, the first three with technical staff and the last three with management. All interviews were conducted over Zoom.

    For the technical interviews, the questions ranged from questions about my background, free form discussions about coding and languages, some coding exercises and architectural design questions. The coding exercises were all very straightforward and practical, centering around things like executing HTTP requests and sorting/filtering/grouping data. The design/architectural questions were also very fun and practical.

    The management interviews were more traditional behavioral questions, although one of these also ended up getting very technical as well. Towards the end they mostly to make sure you were a good cultural fit, which is especially important considering Elastic's distributed nature.

    Overall I think the process was very fair and geared towards finding engineers who can solve real-world problems, rather than fresh CS grads who study Google interview algorithm questions. My only complaints are that the process itself is rather long (took me about 6 weeks weeks), and pay was not really discussed until the end of the process (in my opinion this should be discussed in the initial HR screening to make prevent anyone wasting their time).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Applied online. Got a phone interview the next day. Her first question asked if I knew what Elastic does, and if I was familiar with their products. I had researched Elasticsearch but didn't look too deep at their other products. She gave me a brief overview and after 15 min of our call she basically said, "Ok anything else?"... Hinting to end our call. I was shocked. We didn't get to discuss the job's responsibilities or what questions I may have. She didn't give me any information and her attitude was not friendly about my questions. Admittedly I could've better researched their entire products range, but I figured knowing the brief overviews of what they are would be sufficient. But the job certainly didn't demand having knowledge in these tools either. For the next 10 mins or so, I had to ask all my questions and pull the basics of the job from her. It was awkward. I finished my questions and that was it.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I started the process by looking around on their website where I found a job that matched my interests and skills. Applied for it and heard back pretty quickly. Had a chat with a recruiter which went well and then had three technical interviews.

    Each of the technical interviews was in the conversation style of things. They'd ask questions about my background and the technologies I've worked with and then pose, for the most part, interesting and well thought out questions about those topics.

    When I was told about the technical interviews I was given a summary of what to expect but, unfortunately, that didn't line up all the time. I prepared code samples and open source things for one interview that didn't have anything to do with that. Another interview had me talk about that but gave such vague instructions that it was awkward as we got through the discussion pretty quickly. Overall, though, the interviews themselves were pretty reasonable.

    The reason for my neutral review is because I have some pretty serious concerns about their culture. If you're a minority in tech I'd definitely consider strongly before working here. In one of my interviews the interviewer mentioned that they really liked this woman who applied there but they had to reject her because she was junior (aka didn't have a lot of experience). In another interview, a different person expanded on this and said and I quote, "Why would we hire someone who isn't senior if we get so many senior applications? Sure it means we have a less diverse culture but if our goal is to write the best software then we should hire the best talent."

    I tried to dig more into this in the interviews to find out about like how do they expect people to learn as everyone can't know everything. The answers I got was basically, "teach yourself anything you don't know."

    That type of style works really well for some people so if you're one of those people then this company may work out well for you. However, if you're someone who believes in diversity and hiring people with different backgrounds and experience levels or if you're someone who likes learning by working with other people then you maybe should look elsewhere.

    At the end of the tech interviews, I got a bizarre email saying that I had a great background or something but that they had other candidates that fit better. I didn't even know what company it was for at first because of how generic and unclear it was.

    tl dr - Interviews themselves were fine. Culture seems bad. Resolution email is a typical generic non-informative one.
