Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at AppFolio in October 2014.

Interview Details

Applied online for the Software Engineer Intern position and within approximately a week I had a initial phone screen with a member of the HR team. She was very kind and after that she set me up with a one hour technical phone interview with a senior member of the engineering team. The technical phone interview lasted about 40 minutes and covered questions on my background as well as questions relating to sorting, data management, and object-oriented programming. I was rejected at the end of the technical interview, but the interviewer was very nice about it.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at AppFolio in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    It is quite a standard interview process. It emphasizes a lot on the breadth rather than the depth of knowledge in CS. All coding questions are reasonable and fair. From HR to CEO, all people there are very helpful and friendly. Their products are also very promising and starting to get a lot of revenue.

    Interview Questions
    • Various types of sorting algorithms and their complexity. Process of a URL being entered to a page rendered to users.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    This is my first offer and given the fact that this is a startup company and the pay is a bit below average.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at AppFolio in November 2007.

    Interview Details

    The first interview was with the CTO, who described the general work to be done, with some talks about my background in software. The next was with a remote engineer over the phone, who asked more technical questions about my history and experience with Ruby on Rails and programming in general. After that, a one-on-one with their lead engineer who presented several programming challenges. A less formal chat with the president and CEO, then a follow-up with the CTO again.
