    Lead UI Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA (US)) in December 2018.

    Interview

    Interview process was slightly delayed by the holiday (a great perk of Salesforce, they give 2 full weeks off over Christmas and New Year's), but once things moved forward I found the process wonderful. The take-home code assignment was better than most I've had to do for interviews, since it was building a real application and the example project closely mirrors their working stack, which I found valuable in assessing my level of interest in the product I would be building.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce in February 2019.

    Interview

    My interview process with Salesforce.org consisted of the following stages:
    1. Initial phone screening with the recruiter
    2. Video call with one of the hiring managers
    3. Remote Programming Test
    4. 3 panel interviews consisting of 2 interviewers each conducted via video call
    5. Final interview with a SFDO VP

    Interview Questions

    • Generally speaking, the interview questions were intended to assess cultural fit, personality, motivation, and technical knowledge / experience.

      Every individual with whom I spoke seemed genuine and driven by the mission of SFDO. Even the technical interviews played out more like conversations than the typical correct / incorrect Q&A cycle. While it was apparent that technical ability was being assessed, it never felt like an interrogation. I personally appreciated the style.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The recruiter low-balled me quite a bit, actually she began with an unreasonable base salary. I had to negotiate pretty hard. Even then I didn't get what I was expecting.
