    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at LinkedIn (Mountain View, CA (US)) in August 2009.

    Interview

    Great interviewer with lots of great technical questions - and answers to go along when I did not know them. Wasn't a fit in the end, but we had a good conversation none the less.

    Engineering Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at LinkedIn (Mountain View, AR (US)) in February 2010.

    Interview

    LinkedIn used two initial phone screens (one with a recruiter, one with a hiring manager), followed by a day of interviews on site. I met with 7 different people on several different functional areas: research, development, and marketing.

    Interviews consisted of a mixture of several things: questions about my background and experience, case studies, and technical questions. Interviewers asked specific questions about LinkedIn's products, and asked for ideas on how to design and build these systems.

    I have never had as much fun interviewing with a company as I had with LinkedIn. I had a number of very intellectually interesting discussions. I also found that LinkedIn engineers were very friendly and outgoing; I got the sense that the goal of the interviews was as much to see if they wanted to work with you as it was to see if you could contribute technically.

    If you are interviewing with LinkedIn, you'll find it helpful to learn something about LinkedIn's products. You should definitely spend some time using different features on the LinkedIn web site (suggestions, groups, messages), and should also do some research on the company itself (magazine articles, open source software projects, etc).

    Interviewed by the recruiter , then 1:1 interviews with Engineering Manager, followed by an on-site group/panel interview. The interview sessions went fairly well (I thought). Received feedback after 5 days that the engineering team declined to make an offer

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at LinkedIn (Mountain View, CA (US)) in June 2011.

    Interview

    They asked me to have an internet connection open and use collabedit. The interviewer kept getting phone calls and kept going out and in and was hardly focused on the interview. He also complained that he is working on someone else's laptop and could not work properly on it. I got 2 questions shown below and after answering them I got an email from the recruiter saying it was not a match.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at LinkedIn in January 2018.

    Interview

    Interviewers asked a lot on what was listed in my resume, especially the projects I did. They were particularly interested in the type of AI project I did and what models I built. Technical interview was with 2 interviewers via a phone call. The call was sketchy and I couldn't get the accent of an interviewer right. Overall, it was a rather manageable interview.
