Interview

It started with a recruiter reaching out. I schedule my phone screen for a date 1 month after. The phone screen went great but the recruiter told me that they had shut down university recruiting. Everyone was very nice and respectful throughout the process.

    Nice interviewers. Technical questions are not very hard to answer.
    We were just talking on the phone and writing codes on a google Doc. If someone is going to take this interview, I would recommend practicing wring codes on Google Doc first.
