Bewerbung

Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 4 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im April 2018 bei Elastic (Remote, OR (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

Vorstellungsgespräch

About me: I have been fortunate to explore deep into the hiring processes of some top remote companies as an applicant. In addition, I have designed and developed hiring practices for remote Engineering teams. I have even spent time as an expert consultant in remote hiring processes.

This process was, far and away, the best experience I have had applying for a role of any sort. I recommend this company and this process to anyone seeking a team with emotional intelligence and a deep, respectful awareness of the human experience as it relates to technological research and development.

The interview process consisted of multiple group and individual interviews. It was challenging. It called on a breadth of expertise and consistent demonstration of strong communication skills and technical knowledge.

I spoke with...

* A recruiter, who asked some basic questions about myself, my experiences, and then opened herself up to questions about working with Elastic.

* Two senior members of the Technical Writing team. They queried me on practical approaches to technical writing, what my thoughts were on documentation maintenance, and my comfort level with diving into technical things.

* The former CEO, now Product Lead, and a Full-Stack Engineer. We spoke about my work history and got into defining the needs of their team and explored what my experiences meant for those needs.

* A senior Product Manager and a senior Designer. We dug into my past history and the specifics of how their team liked to work. They wanted to see how I approached a variety of problems, and what my thoughts and philosophies were around product development.

* The VP of Engineering of Elastic. He wanted to meet me, hear about my history, and feel out how I might fit into a remote environment. We discussed how Engineering teams are organized and what the future may hold.

* The former CTO, now Technical Team Lead. We explored why the role was important. He said, and demonstrated, that he cared deeply about the role. We discussed what their weaknesses were and how we could combat them.

What made the process special, comfortable, informative, and enjoyable, were two particular things:

* After each step, Suzie, the recruiter, would contact me and we would discuss how I felt. She had no agenda. She simply listened, provided information, and gave advice and encouragement. It was fantastic.

* Given that I have public facing, quality work and a resume that indicated deep experience, I felt the discussions were not adversarial. They were honest chats between subject matter experts who knew what they wanted and how to discuss around their topics of expertise in a graceful way. No one tried to trick me. There was no pretension, shaming, or condescension.

Well done, Elastic team!

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 3 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Oktober 2018 bei Elastic (Remote, OR (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Format:
    * I interviewed with seven different people over the course of three weeks.
    * Each interview was a video interview, and lasted between 30-60 minutes.
    * The interviewers asked tough questions, but the environment was very relaxed. It felt more like a conversation than an interview.

    Interview Rounds:
    * Wojtek - My recruiter and main point of contact throughout the process. After screening me, he was on my side the entire time. He answered every question I had and would reach out after every interview to discuss how it went.

    * Three members of the technical writing team. I got to meet a few fellow writers, and learn about some of their processes. This interview focussed on my previous writing and non-writing experiences, tools I'm familiar with, professional goals, and my thoughts on the changing landscape of technology.

    * Two members of the product team - specifically the product lead and technical lead. This interview gave me a chance to learn how the team interacts on a daily basis. A lot of questions were focussed on the product, if I had used it before, and my experiences with it. I was also asked what my strategy was for working with developers, and the processes I went through to structure and create documentation.

    * The SVP of engineering. This was a fun final interview. I got a chance to learn more about Elastic's roadmap, ask questions, and discuss what excited me about this company in particular.

    More than anything, I truly appreciated how two-sided the interview process with Elastic was. There was ample time for me to ask questions and learn more about my potential future role.

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich über einen Personalvermittler beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 4 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im September 2018 bei Elastic (Remote, OR (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I was contacted by a recruiter and had two additional interviews after this initial talk. The process was slower than expected, but I thought all went great after meeting the teams in several virtual meetings. Everyone seemed engaged and impressed with my skills and expertise and they liked my approach to working with remote teams.

    Then I did not hear anything for a week and received a generic rejection letter without any details. I suppose that I am not diverse enough for Silicon Valley who all seem to want quota hires.
