Our interview process is normally a phone interview, a take-home coding task, and 2-3 hours of final interviews (carried out virtually). We promise not to ask you any brain teasers or trick questions. We might discuss papers or design an algorithm, the same way we often work together, but we won’t make you write code on the spot. Our recruitment process has an average length of 3 weeks.
