Interview Process

Typically 3 to 4 phases. The process can take 2-4 weeks.

1. CodeSignal online assessment

If you are applying to a technical role, you must complete a CodeSignal online assessment consisting of your typical algorithmic problems. Most aren’t too difficult, but you will be partially graded on speed.

2. Initial Phone Screening

After you submit your application, you will go through an initial phone screening with a recruiter to briefly go over your background and see if you should be moved to the next step.

3. Phone Interview

The next step is a more in-depth phone interview. This will typically be with an employee/manager in your department of choice.

4. Video Interview or Onsite Interview

The on-site interview for engineering roles consists of one hour-long round of fairly difficult whiteboarded algorithmic problems, and a relatively easier hour-long programming session.
