Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lexicon (Melbourne) in May 2023
Recruiter reached out to me asking me if I would consider moving into consulting based off my skills. 1 hour screening/introduction to the company. Got given a code base to get familiar with so in the technical interview I could extend on it. Technical interview was an hour and 15 minutes long. 30 minutes extending, 30 minute technical questions and 15 minutes of questions for the people interviewing. Got feedback from the tech interview saying that I would be a good culture fit and that my solution and reasoning behind doing things was good. Was told in the interview that they would be willing to train me in front end as I have worked only in the back end. But was told that I can't be considered for a consultant level role because I had no experience in testing and they needed someone for the role that would "hit the ground running" Was told that I may be able to continue the process as an associate consultant which was a step down from what I am currently doing so I declined.
- Extend code base 30 mintues. Add an API get method (endpoint was provided) Technical question based on experience. Nothing too serious.

Applied through a recruiter. First call to offer was very quick (about 2 weeks), very few delays experienced. Interviewed remotely for a role in Melbourne. A three step process of HR -> Technical pairing -> Meet the founders.
- Q: When does Agile work best, when does it not work as well?
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Lexicon
Referral through friend, contact with recruiter, submission of a code challenge, pairing code exercise interview with 2 developers, interview with manager/leaders. Each interview was very friendly and welcoming. The process from start to finish was very quick, excellent communication from recruiter!

I was contacted by someone from talent acquisition and was invited to interview. After an initial chat I was given a coding challenge. Next step was a pair programming session where the challenge was expanded upon, then a meet with the leadership team.

The most pleasant interview process I've ever had. Applied through a recruiter and nail the entire process in 10 days. 1st Round. HR phone interview. 2nd Round. I choose the take-home coding challenge here, 3rd Round. Technical Interview with two Lead Consultants. The first half focused on the code implementation and a change request pair coding, and the second half more general technical questions and engineering practices. 4th Round. Meet the leads. 30 minutes chat with the leadership level Directors. I already got offers and some ongoing interviews with some other big companies. In this case, Lexicon is very efficient to make things happen in a short timeframe. Normally can get the feedbacks within a few hours after the interview. They offered a day after the final interview.
- 1. CICD implementation and best practices. 2. queue service middleware. 3. describe the big O with a detailed implementation in the solution.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Lexicon (Sydney) in Oct 2021
The entire interview process was conducted remotely. The first interview session was a 30-minute phone screen with a Talent Acquisition member from the company. I was asked questions regarding what I am looking for in my next role as well as my understanding of agile and software testing. The session was very casual and relaxed and I got to understand more about the role and company from my end. Since I informed them that my timeline is compressed due to having an offer on-hand already from a different company, they were kind enough to skip a step in the interview process for me, which is a take-home coding challenge. Thus, for the next interview, I was provided an existing code implementation solution to the challenge to download and to familiarise beforehand. The interview was a pair-programming session with a couple of consultant engineers where I screen-shared my preferred IDE and I was given an additional problem to solve by extending the existing code solution I was given. I was also asked some questions regarding Agile and CI/CD methodologies. The final interview was a 30-minute behavioural round with the company director and the professional services manager where I was asked more questions regarding Agile, how teams are structured in my current company, and how I work in my team etc. I was given news that they are making me an offer one day later after the final interview. The entire process was very quick and everybody was very nice and supportive throughout.
