Vorstellungsgespräch

Applied online through Glassdoor. Was contacted by the first recruiter who discussed the interview process and provided information on the company. Was contacted again after around 2 weeks by another recruiter who asked for slots for telephonic interview, which I promptly provided. I was later informed of the date of the telephonic interview for which I promptly confirmed my availability. A day before the interview, I was informed that the interviewer is not available and was asked about other available timeslots, which I again promptly provided. I then got confirmation of the telephonic interview being rescheduled to another date based on the new timeslots I provided.

On the day of the interview, the interviewer didn't call me at the specified time and was late by around 10 minutes, as far as I remember. Though the telephonic interview went well and I answered confidently, I was informed (and that too only after I enquired about the result) that I hadn't cleared the round. As the interview had gone well and I was somewhat surprised by the outcome, I politely enquired about some additional feedback for my improvement, but there was no response or acknowledgement from the recruiter whatsoever to my query.

Though Twilio's product and tech stack seemed interesting, due to the recruiters lack of follow-up and response post my interview, the fact that the interviewer cancelled the interview once and then ended up being late for the rescheduled phone interview, overall the interview process was a disappointment.

How frustrating to have a call rescheduled multiple times - that should never happen. I do apologize that you did not have a great experience with us, and I plan on using this example as a training tool for the team to improve our communication skills.

    I was contacted by HR on LinkedIn. I received a test on Hackerrank. It was rather simple. I did it and then never heard back from the HR. No feedback. Nothing.

    Having to wait around for feedback is frustrating and not respectful of your time. While the pace of our business can be hectic, we need to respect peoples' time. Thank you for sharing your feedback and we will use it to train our team.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I was contacted by one of their sourcer after applying. Initial mail contained some basic questions and the process. After confirming, I was sent a Hackerrank test invite - should have been a red flag for a Principal Engineer role, even before a call with recruiter. After this, a technical phone screen was scheduled which was a live coding test.
    Finally, I received a call from the recruiter and she mentioned a bit about the process and asked me about my current salary and expectation. A bit premature in my opinion, the salary range quoted was a standard Senior SWE salary in Bangalore, much lower than Principal / Staff Engineer salary. Anyway, I was interested to talk to the people as I heard nice things about the company and the culture.

    I had 5 rounds of interviews schedule over two days via zoom. I enjoyed my conversations with 4 out of 5 interviewers. I was surprised to meet an Engineering manager in my only coding round. It was quite clear that person was not at all experienced about coding interviews and how to gauge signals from a senior candidate. I was asked a leetcode type of question that required graph. I described the solution and then set out to code. After finishing the methods, I was told to run it on coderpad. This came as a surprise, especially 35 minutes into the interview. CS Engineers will know that it takes a bit of time and boilerplating to make a running code for graph problems with input and none of this was prepared by the interviewer. I spent another 10-12 minutes just to piece together a code that can be run and the allotted 45 minutes was over so interviewer stopped me.

    Anyway, it has been 3 weeks and not a peep from the recruiter. Seeing as how inflated title the Principal Engineer is and the low compensation, I didn't really bother following up again.
    For others' reference, at Twilio the Principal Engineer maps to a standard L5 engineer in the industry with a little less pay and I'd guess Staff maps to L4.
