I applied online. I interviewed at TransferWise (Hungary)

Interview

First round: Very easy 4 or 5 hackerrank tasks. If you invest a little time into going through hackerrank exercises, it won't be a problem. Second round: Talk with 3 devs from transferwise. It was not hard, they were just interested what I learnt so far. We talked about key concepts. Also they prepared with a little hackerrank exercise related to promises. What bothered me is that one of the interviewer disconnected for 5 minutes just after asking a question. Later on the feedback contained the question as flaged stating that I didn't answer the question correctly. (I did) Thrid round: Product interview. And here I failed. You have to be really really really careful what you answer to their question. If you can't come up with a good example for their question, they just flag it and include it in the improvement section. So if it takes time to come up with examples for: - what you had to solve for a user? - how you shaped the requirements for the user? - what app you like and know they are missing a feature? - what that feature is? - how would you start designing it and implementing it? - how would you measure its success? - what data would you check if you were the CEO? then practice it till it is second nature to you, otherwise they just reject you. (Also try to get information about how their teams work and how they ship a feature from end-to-end, because if you don't know, if you don't describe the same process then they will include it in the improvement section too)

I had a video interview with the team lead directly and in the evening he sent an email rejecting me. The questions are easy, the kind of thing you would find in the internet but I didn't prepare well so I failed.

Interview

Nice, easy, straight to the point. But think the introduction took too long (who don't know about Transferwise :) ). I received feedback, about the strong and weak parts of the interview, which is great!

Interview Questions
  • 1. One question was to reveal your understanding of customer needs 2. The Second one was more analytical.

The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at TransferWise (Australia)

Interview

Saw the ad posted multiple times a few months before I finally applied. Application form asked a few essay type questions. “Tell me about.. how you handle... “. Finally had a preliminary round - getting to know you and explaining that there would be 3 rounds of interviews and would like to fill the role ASAP- company has big aspiration etc.. Another round organised with situational, behavioural questions-starting to feel like interviewers were picking brain for free ideas on how to solve their current problems and indeed told me they were having such problems. Then onto another around again similar thing with another person asking for solutions of challenges faced and market information. Was then told there would be the last round. Didn’t hear back for many moons. Suddenly a phone call to ask even more situational “tell me about, explain how you dealt with..” In the mean time saw they used an agency to hire again.. seems like 1) they dont know what they are looking for, hence keep asking similar situational questions in the multiple rounds AND 2) definitely looking for free consultation service disguised as interview: getting free input to solve problems at hand! NOT serious in hiring.

45 Minute "Pair Programming Interview" It is not pair programming if I talk & code and you give uneeded tips and hints every time I stop or even explicitly ask for time to think and then make a negative feedback point for each tip/hint you gave me.
