    Software Engineering Internship Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Consisted of a coding test through HackerRank. I didn't make it through this stage. The thing that sucked was they made you take it in Java, which - for someone rusty with Java - was especially annoying. I really do think that, had the test been language agnostic, as it is with almost every other company I've interviewed with. It's easy to catch up on syntax stuff in a day or two once you've gotten a job, but for a 90 minute technical screen you really should be evaluated on your best language.

    ESports Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DraftKings (Boston, MA (US)) in October 2020.

    Interview

    We set a time for a phone screening. The first time was missed by the interviewer, but things come up. Salvatore seemed personable and was apologetic for the missed interview. The screening was some basic questions about my interest in the company, and I was told I would receive a second interview, which would be on Zoom. That never came, as the position was filled. I wish I would have said more to sell myself in the first interview, as I had a lot to offer that I was saving for the second interview. However, I'm happy for whoever got the position and will be keeping my eye on this company for future openings.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked about my interest in the company and about my experience in the esports scene.   Answer Question

    Software Engineer(Internship) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at DraftKings (Boston, MA (US)) in October 2020.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty smooth and well-orchestrated. My recruiter always got back to me in time, except after the final interview. There was a coding challenge followed by 1 hour of final technical interview. I was informed that I'd hear back by the end of the week but it's been almost 10 days and no word yet. But some people are saying that there's a massive backlog they are dealing with so I'm not too sure. Maybe I'll hear from them in a while.

    We apologize for the delay in responding to you. The fall campus season is very hectic, and candidates' increased interest can cause a backup in our recruiting process. Rest assured, we're still actively recruiting, and you should hear from us soon. Your feedback has been shared with the campus recruiting team. Jason

    Phone/In person interviews that included case study analysis and general behavioral analysis. It seemed competitive, but it was overall a positive experience. It was definitely designed to see how you though in real world and free form examples.

    First a normal phone call screen, then more interviews to follow. Pretty standard process with nothing out of the ordinary. Because of the pandemic there were no in person interviews.
