    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich auf Empfehlung eines Mitarbeiters beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 4 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Februar 2017 bei Twilio (San Francisco, CA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I had one phone call with a recruiter, then one phone call with a relevant team member to whom the role would be reporting and then an in-person interview with 6 people from the team. The recruiter handled things promptly and even followed up with a personal call after the interview, which was greatly appreciated and valued.

    Recruiter talk, then a phone interview. The phone interview questions are mainly about Java concepts, like how to make a Hashmap thread safe, what to do in case of collision, what is and the usage of Singleton pattern, and java synchronized keyword. At the end is an coding problem to determine if a ransom letter can be composed using a magazine. The question part took over than half an hour, and the coding part only took a little over 10 mins, which I think should be the other way around.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I applied online and was contacted by HR. Had a call with them and then was scheduled for a telephone interview with an engineer. The engineer asked technical questions on algorithms and data structures and then proceeded to a coding question. I was unable to understand the accent of the engineer. So asked him to write the test cases on coderpad. He forgot to write one of the test cases and he added the test case very late, as a result I ran out of time. After seeing the test case I answered the algorithm correctly but had to time to code it.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Met team at campus recruitment event. Could use previous experience to engage with them. Secured on-campus interview next day. Went well, was mainly technical. Followed by dinner with team. Followed by 2 phone screens. Both technical. Not very challenging but needed basic CS and systems knowledge. Second one quizzed me on specific technology Twilio worked with - things I was somewhat familiar with. Third "interview" was discussion with team lead to discuss position and seal the deal.

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 3 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im August 2011 bei Twilio (San Francisco, CA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I was first contacted with someone from HR. The questions asked here are to gauge your interest in the company and see if your skills match what they are looking for. After that went through, I was scheduled for a phone screen. The phone screen was very casual and the interviewer seemed almost unprepared as he was almost unsure of what to ask. After the first phone screen, I was contacted to do one more phone screen. This person seemed much better than the first, but the style of the interview was very casual and conversational as well. Finally, I was scheduled for a 4 person onsite interview.

    Something that Twilio has to work on is their reimbursement policy - it's terrible. They only provide you with $600 (yes, you have to book your flight and hotel yourself) and they don't reimburse you for food. Take note that for someone flying into San Francisco, a flight is at least $300 and good luck finding a hotel for less than $150 a night. That threw me off a little bit, but whatever, it's a start-up.

    Their offices are really quite small for the amount of employees that they have and the place seemed really crowded (it's all one big open space). They do, however, have a pantry and fridge full of food and they bring in lunches and dinners throughout the week.

    The onsite interview consisted of 4 interviews and the questions that were asked were mostly pertinent to the languages I am mostly comfortable with, but they seem to like Ruby quite a lot. They also asked a lot of questions on past projects and if I have used Twilio for my own projects. This is probably pretty important to them. I would recommend studying on networking, coding, and distributed computing problems.

    Ich habe mich über einen Personalvermittler beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 1 Tag. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im November 2011 bei Twilio (San Francisco, CA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    The interview process was similar to what others describe. I first had a phone screen. First thing I notice was how hard it was to hear the person on the other line. Apparently they use their own technology which really make it hard to hear. The initial phone screen didn't ask anything difficult just generally who I am and what I do.

    The second phone interview was with a senior engineer. Again the phone connection was hard to hear on. He asked a bunch of random python trivia questions (generator interfaces, list implementation) Very specific stuff.

    Few days later they schedule an onsite interview. First thing I notice when I get into their office is that the entire room is jam packed with people. It looks very busy and chaotic. Very much seemed like they needed to expand into a new office. They offered me something to drink, gave me an office tour, and made me wait around for a while. Apparently a few people that were going to interview me weren't in that day. Also, several times people tried to take the conference room where I was being interviewed (the only conference room?) and use it. Anyway, I met with one of the senior engineers which gave me a design problem for a RESTful interface for storing data in some connected-grid format. I had to do some whiteboard coding for it. The next interview was with a new engineer and a senior engineer. They gave me another design problem for building a shopping cart api, again with some coding but this time more focused on the design. After that I briefly got to talk to the CTO.

    The office itself had a lot of character. The bathroom itself had some fun posters. They have cool t-shirts, and jumpsuits. They had catered food and lots of free beverages. The windows are kind of small and didn't add too much light to the work environment. Overall people seemed pretty friendly was my general impression.

    I applied online and was emailed by the HR about the interview rounds. There were two phone interviews. First one was with Recruiting Person - asked questions like what do you know about Twilio, What are your expectations etc. Second round was coding interview via CoperPad. I was asked about my projects and then was asked to write the code - To print anagrams from file ? I wrote an optimized version of code and was pretty happy with the interview.
    After 3 days, I received an email of rejection. I could not believe that because things went really well during the interview.

    I applied online. Firstly, get a phone call from technical HR. Then follow a technical phone interview from a software engineer. After that I was invited to SF for an oniste interview, but this process was terrible. The recruiter almost never replied my email. And they helped me to book the flight just the night before the supposed flight day after 8 emails to the recruiter. There are 4 rounds onsite interview and no hard questions. After the oniste interview, the recruiter told me that I will get the feedback within 2~3 days, but actually I got the feedback after two weeks after 6 emails to her. Then she told me the feedbacks are positive and invited me an taking-home exercise and this process took another 3 weeks.....I just feel this company do not value the employees..So I declined this final exercise. I couldn't image what kind of life would be if I work for them.

    got contacted by a recruiter after applying online, scheduled a phone interview a months later. First round phone interview was with a recruiter to chat for about 30 mins and followed by a Engineer Manager for about 45 mins. Talked about my experience and background, and then went on to solve two coding problems. Both was extremely easy: 1) fizzbuzz 2) reverse a string

    followed up almost immediately for a onsite interview. got lots of help from the HR on booking the flights and hotel for I was a non-local candidate. before the date of the onsite interview, I got a description of a small project which I should implement next day. the project was about simulating a online cloud infrastructure. This was pretty unexpected. Although I had some time to prepare and research for it. I couldn't complete it during the interview in the given time which was only 1 hr and half. And this was the only technical part of the onsite interview. And after a week I got a phone call with no offer.

    I was surprised on how easy you can get a onsite interview, yet how difficult and unconventional the onsite interview could become. I felt like if the company is looking a person with hands-on experience, they could maybe do another round of phone interview before sending candidates to onsite.
