avoid. I was told that since I heard from them from a recruiter, that I probably wasn't a good fit. They are looking for people who REALLY want to work at Harness, and are not passive about it.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Harness in Jul 2021

Interview

Started off as a chat with the recruiter to go over the position. After that was the technical interview. There were 3 rounds to that, each 1 hour in length. Questions focused heavily on data structures and algorithms. Last interview was with the hiring manager which was a mix of technical (Java threading) and architectural (scaling an application) questions, along with a discussion of my resume.

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Harness (Bangalore) in Jul 2021

Interview

The entire interview process was one of the best ones I've been a part of. Everyone was very welcoming and made you feel comfortable and took the time to talk to you about the company and the role you have applied for. There were 4 rounds which were all mainly technical with an emphasis on the in-depth understanding of how and why the tech works than the specifics. The Technical rounds were varying in questions and in the event, you got an answer wrong, the interviewer would take time to explain how it works instead of just moving on to the next question.

Interview Questions
  • There were in-depth Linux questions and the rest was mainly based on Cloud Architecture, Docker, issue debugging, and Kubernetes. It is also important to be well versed in what you have done at your previous employer.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Harness (London, England)

Interview

Recruiter - Internal HR - Manager - Director - Role Play so 5 layers. I really liked that the final test was an actual role play, not just giving a presentation and because they give you a real deck you get to see if this is something you could sell, and they also give you access to a current seller to help you prepare. I was in multiple interview processes with a few different organisations and this was the only company that let me speak to people in the business, during the interview process and after the offer, which made a big difference for me.

Interview Questions
  • They want to understand what motivates you cause obviously even though we're sellers it's not just money. You don't have to be super technical but able to articulate complex concepts simply and discuss the value of the technical solutions with more senior stakeholders.

An amazing interview process for a company that is growing rapidly. It took around a month to complete the interview process. They test your ability to sell a product based on value, and dig into the clients pain.
