    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at GoCardless in November 2016.

    Interview

    HR scheduled a phone interview, then postponed it without giving me a clear reason. Then, the day of our phone interview she was 10 min late and did not even bother apologised. During the interview she seems distracted and no willing to give me more answer about company training and culture. GoCardless is supposed to be a fintech company with a cutting edge culture. Stop being rude with applicants and please if you could provided feedbacks would be much appreciated.

    Software Development Manager Interview

    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at GoCardless (London, England (UK)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    1. A telephonic conversation with HR.
              Usual conversation about what your skills are and why do you want to join GoCardless.

    2. Video conference with CTO's friend
                This person was brought along by the CTO of GoCardless, is the founder of Slackline and struggles a bit with English. Overall, nice to talk to, but after emphasising that leadership skills are the focus for this role and a lot of line management is involved, asked only Solution Architecture questions.

    3. Feedback from HR on a different job spec
                Received feedback from HR on the Solution Architect role.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at GoCardless.

    Interview

    Brief phone screen involved just talking about myself, what I enjoyed doing, and why I'd be a good fit for the company. This was followed by another interview with their engineers over the phone, and involved a couple of more technical questions. Mainly involved talking about what sort of technologies I have worked with, and how I would like/be able to work.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at GoCardless (London, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I went through 3 interviews, 2 of them were on phone and the other in person. They took forever to schedule the following step, they are very unorganized and confusing in the process.

    Interview Questions

    • They sent me a small piece of pseudocode of a web crawler and they asked me questions about what could fail, how it could be improve, architecture design of it and some edge cases such as redirect managements, exceptions, duplicate resources, etc.   Answer Question
    • They asked me questions about different areas, UI developments (media queries, web performance, CDN usage, etc), basics about Rest APIs (cache control, HTTP2 feature, API authentication ) and basic security questions (SQL injection, code injection, etc)   Answer Question
    • they send an easy problem to solve (implement an API that captures the heartbeat of some legacy systems and implement another API that reports those that has not sent a heartbeat for more than N seconds )   Answer Question

    Scheduled a phone interview with their HR team through Hired. Never called on the day or followed up after Hired informed them that they had missed it (happens after you click "Interview didn't happen"). Rubbish.

    The interview process is not formal, could be a question type interview with a coding exercise

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GoCardless (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Received an interview requesting telephone interview, replied to confirm. Another member of the team conducted the telephone interview. The girl doing it, wasn’t very inspiring. When I asked questions about the role, she couldn’t answer them. She was reading off a sheet as she had to keep saying ‘ sorry, just checking my sheet for the next question’ she didn’t really sell me the dream of
    Gocardless.
    The next stage was a written exercise, was fairly simple. Completed this and received feedback asking me to progress. I received the same email from 2 different people; give off the impression that there was a lack of communication/ organisation in the office.
    Confirmed my attendance for the next step which was a 2 hour on the Job practical element. Little bit excessive for such an entry level role. I emailed a question to one of the people who emailed me to ask me to attend. To date, I am yet to receiving any response to the question, very unprofessional!
