    Overall, there were 6 interviews, each 45 mins- 1 hour long. It was a lengthy process but the team was great and clearly enjoyed the company. Questions weren’t too difficult and there weren’t any questions that I wasn’t expecting.

    Outbound Sales Development Representative-Vorstellungsgespräch

    Ich habe mich auf Empfehlung eines Mitarbeiters beworben. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im August 2020 bei Twilio (Denver, CO (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    The interview process was overall pretty extensive. It was an initial phone screen, an activity, a 30 minute manager phone screen and then five 45 minute interviews with managers/peers/directors. At the end of the day the company promoted internally and did not respect my time. It took them over a week to give me feedback, when in the meantime they removed the job posting and posted the inbound role. They did this prior to informing me that they hadn't yet reviewed my interview. In general, if you are an external candidate, I would beware. It's probably not a good use of your time.

    Thank you for your feedback. We really want everyone to have a good experience with us, and it appears we did not do our job with you. We should have been better in our communication and I will take this example back to the team. We respect the time you took to interview with us and apologize that it was not reflected in your process.

    The position I interviewed for was a New Grad position. I applied then a week or so later I received a hackerank. It was a while ago and I did so many at the time that I don’t remember the exact questions. Though I think it was one easy and one medium or two mediums I don’t really remember. About a week and a half after that I got an email inviting me to the hiring event in August. The hiring event was great. Every interviewer was interesting and helpful. It was a four part interview, one behavioral, one design, and two LC type questions. I got an offer a week after the final interview.

    Ich habe mich über einen Personalvermittler beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 1 Woche. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im August 2020 bei Twilio (New York, NY (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Was reached out to apply online with resume and cover sheet. I submitted and a few days later, they provided the TAM test. I spent hours working on it, going through documentation and answering the questions fully. The reached out a week later via a no-reply email saying that are not moving forward. I emailed the recruiter for any feedback and have been ignored so far. I applied for another position and haven't heard anything back so it seems like once they deny you for one role, they deny you for every role.

    Thank you for completing the TAM test. I realize it can be frustrating when you do not receive acknowledgment or a response from the team, and I am sorry you experienced this. We recognize there are opportunities for us to do better, and we are working on ways to improve communication with our candidates. I hope you will continue to consider Twilio as new opportunities open. Thank you for sharing feedback.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Took a little over a month. interviewed with 6 total people. During the process, I was told twice that they messed up their headcount, internally promoted too many people, the start date would be pushed back, but they were positive that they wanted to continue the interview motions. From there, I felt as if my time was not being well respected. The interviewers were constantly being switched along with the date/time. At the end, I got a call and was told I was not selected and that the hiring team had ZERO feedback for me. All in all, it was a normal process with typical sales-like questions with great people. However, they seemed very disorganized and looking back I do not feel my time was being respected. I would be cautious if I had to interview with them again and make sure they understood and stuck to their own goals while hiring new employees.

    Straightforward interview process. Skipped the phone screening due to referral, completed an assessment and moved onto the final round. Was contacted by HR for a final round video interview and had two back to back interviews and heard back after several days.

    Enterprise Account Executive-Vorstellungsgespräch

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich auf Empfehlung eines Mitarbeiters beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 5 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Juli 2020 bei Twilio.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    My interview process in Enterprise Sales consisted of several steps. 1) 30 minute phone screen with the recruiter 2) Zoom interview with Hiring Manager 3) Three 45 minute back to back Zoom interviews with individual panelists 4) Create and deliver a 30 minute Presentation on 2-3 of the vertical's use cases and my recommended Twilio products to the panel via Zoom. Due to COVID-19, the presentation was delivered via Zoom instead of onsite which is the standard practice. Steps 3 and 4 are usually performed on the same day, "Virtual OnSite Day". My Virtual OnSite Day was split into 2 days to accommodate the panelists' schedules.

    The 5 week interviewing process was educational and for the most part smooth. I enjoyed meeting 6 different team members. 1) Recruiter 2) Two Hiring Managers for the role 3) A Peer 4) Adjacent Team Peer 5) A Senior Leader from a support team outside of sales. Before going through the process, it was known that I have experience and skills working in the specified vertical, but not 10 dedicated years. It's a vertical I've worked and have a deep passion for. I have great relationships in my network (past clients, associations, family and friends in the industry), so I felt confident I would have a successful start working and building the business after some general training and consistent studying .

    My background has 12 successful years in enterprise sales and digital working for large corporations including Fortune 50 tech companies. Two decades in tech and media sales. A multiple President's Club achiever, Salesperson of the Year, etc. I've also launched my own company, built it from the ground up working overtime with a talented staff for years until I sold it. I'm including part of my professional background only to provide some context. Because my professional background showed I can successfully sell in different spaces and I have the entrepreneurial skills and mindset, I was considered for the role and was moved through the process.

    For the interviews and presentation, I prepared by doing deeper research using the Twilio and vertical’s industry news sites, social media, interviewed SMEs in my network, connected with Twilio employees on LinkedIn, attended their virtual sponsored events and Twilio Engage Everywhere webinars.

    Out of the 6 panelists I met with, four were invited to the presentation by the recruiting team. One of the 4 panelists didn't appear so the attendees were the recruiter, the two hiring managers and me. I already knew the panelist (the peer) who wasn’t present didn’t support my candidacy because I didn't meet 10 years experience in the vertical space. He considered me a risk. We talked about it when I asked for his feedback at the end of our interview time. The recruiter and one hiring manager thanked me for my time and gave their feedback on the presentation. They noticed the time I invested and said I delivered a great presentation. I appreciated receiving all the feedback. On the decision call, the recruiter said it was agreed that I was considered a good fit for Twilio's culture. However, they also agreed other candidates were stronger for the role because of their experience and I would not be receiving an offer.

    Their decision was respected. Again, I enjoyed meeting the team, sharing and learning. My only feedback to Twilio is to give more respect to the candidates' time. Get the buy in from your team "before" asking candidates to prepare and deliver you a presentation. In my humble opinion, candidates shouldn't be asked to create and deliver a quality presentation to the panel without their support if the panel is influencing the hiring decisions. Some will not be flexible from the job post. If they can reasonably be persuaded to look at the candidate's aptitude to learn quickly, brings diversity to the table, has impressive successes and transferable skills and is a good fit for the company’s culture, then schedule the presentation and make sure they are present for it. Being in Enterprise Sales, I've been asked to give a presentation or a sales pitch as the last step of the interviewing process. They were always expected after the panel supported my candidacy. I think that's very fair.

    Twilio is a start up offering good career opportunities selling products and solutions at a time the APIs are in great need. I encourage job seekers or professionals staying open to career opportunities in Enterprise Sales and is considering Twilio as a home, to enjoy the interviewing process, if selected to move forward. Learn how the hiring manager wants to build their team upfront, especially if you have great experience and skills - but miss a preference on the job post. What's needed for the team at the time? That is important to know. It's good to be in the competition, but it’s great if you have a serious chance in getting the role (or a role later if you're interested) - if you care to use your valuable time wisely. Best wishes to All! :-)

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 2 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Juni 2020 bei Twilio (San Francisco, CA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I applied to an ad on Indeed from one of the ancillary teams outside of what they call "R&D" and was put in contact with the hiring manager pretty quickly. We had a very pleasant chat and I was scheduled for a follow up call with another team member after that.

    The second call was a bit awkward and stilted but I felt like we got through it okay and my suspicions were confirmed with a request to set up a "virtual onsite" round shortly thereafter. It was at this point that things started to trend consistently downward.

    Right off the bat, my panel for the virtual onsite was 100% male. In a company the size of Twilio, this simply should not ever happen. In a company the size of Twilio that makes a very big public deal about their "diversity" efforts, this is flat out fishy.

    The Zoom panel included a second chat with the hiring manager who again was perfectly pleasant and professional. He asked me good questions, listened to my answers and asked follow-up questions that proved he had actually understood my answers in much the way you would expect an adult human being to be able to do. There really shouldn't be anything remarkable about this whatsoever but, unfortunately, he would prove to be the only person I spoke to at Twilio that day who exhibited these miraculous abilities.

    Everyone else was profoundly distracted and simply reading things off of a script they clearly had no interest in. Two of the gentlemen I spoke with flat out said they didn't know who I was or what they were supposed to talk to me about the second they signed on to Zoom. They were all staring off at something else as I tried to engage with them, they paid no real attention to anything that I said in response to their questions and one of them literally sat there twirling his heavily waxed mustache like some nefarious cartoon steamboat captain from the 1930s as he just said "Mmmhmmm Mmmmhmmm Mmmmhmmm" over and over again until he saw that I had stopped talking so it must be his turn to blurt out something again. This particular individual was exceptionally arrogant, dodged every question I asked him with stories that had nothing to do with what I had asked him and he made it extremely clear that he harbored a great deal of resentment toward the team and was in business for no one but himself as a member of it. I pushed on to the end as politely as I could but I was pretty checked out after the first 30 seconds of my final round with him.

    And therein lies the problem with companies that are much larger than they probably should be. I know there are genuinely great teams inside of Twilio, but whether or not you happen to interview with one of the great ones is going to have a profound impact on your experience interviewing there. I got a real dud. Hopefully you won't.
