    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Twitter (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    onsite consisted of one machine learning system design round, the problem was a very well known problem found on grokking the system design.

    The algorithmic interviews were leetcode medium and a leetcode hard. I did not fully finish the leetcode hard but the interviewer was satisfied.

    I also had a behavioral round with a hiring manager. I was rejected due to the behavioral due to poor prep.

    Quick and easy. A recruiting assignment is given. Then they review it, and possibly get back to you. I did not get a second round interview based on the assignment which is strange since I recruit for a living

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    I've interviewed for four different roles at the company this past year, and the recruiter has never followed up after those first-round interviews with a status update. Amateur and rude behavior. Three of the four roles ended up being internal hires (unsure if the fourth role ended up being the same pattern).

    They have a normal interview process. Apply, Recruiter call (30 minutes) then Hiring Manager screen (30 minutes) followed by Individual Interviews (30 minutes). They are in hyper growth mode and that is reflected in the process.

    It takes way too long as you need to go through 3+ rounds. People are nice/smart. But it just takes weeks and, sometimes, months. And it seems unnecessary, to say the least.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Twitter (New York, NY (US)) in December 2020.

    Interview

    First round was code pairing with the team lead. It started smoothly, basic behavioral questions, then one question from leetcode. Just explaining your though process and going Twitter tag questions from Leetcode should be enough

    Applied Machine Learning Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Twitter.

    Interview

    I had a mixed experience interviewing at Twitter. They had their standard Engineering Manager round and a technical screener. Then the final virtual interview with 4 rounds (Project Deep Dive, ML Design, Systems Design/Coding, Topgrading). Each round had 2 interviewers assessing you. The interviewers themselves were a mixed bag as well. For their Systems Design round, I had great interviewers who clearly knew how to interview. The ML Design round had guys who couldn't explain the problem well or pose a question well. Perhaps, its because you are trying to interview for ML virtually and it's better to whiteboard in person. I wish the interviewer just gave a problem and utilized an online app to design ML model instead of making it an interactive session. Project Deep Dive was pretty neutral, one of the guys kept dropping connection, so be prepared for that too. So this was the technical interview experience, overall pretty neutral. Now, I had a read a lot about Twitter's recruiters being finicky but I actually experienced it first hand. They are actually as sloppy as you might have heard. First, they told me my technical screener is a coding round but I got greeted for ML problem solving/knowledge. Second, for the final interview rounds, they said there will coding but in fact there wasn't any coding and I spent all the time on Leetcode and Hackerrank. Lastly, it took the recruiter 3 days to inform me that they had cancelled my Topgrading interview round. In every step of the process, I had to email the recruiters twice before I got any response. My final suggestion for someone interviewing for this position would be to focus on more the ML model designing more than coding and keep bugging the recruiters because they don't respond. Hope this helps in knowing what to expect.
