I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at TransferWise (Budapest (Hungary)) in December 2018.
Applied for the job online on the company website. Carried on a 6-round interview process:
1. Contacted by company's recruiter via e-mail, describing the hiring process and invited for an initial online test on HackerRank.
2. Next round was a phone screen with another recruiter from the company, having an chat about the company, the role, the culture and my motivation and experience.
3. Next round was a tech interview with one of the senior developers at the company. General conversation about the role, my professional experience and asked different questions which were focusing on my approach to different problems and knowledge on things like transactions, automated testing, dependency injection (a few I remember now)
- Next round was a back-to-back tech and product interview.
4. Tech: online tech interview with the team lead and one of the senior developers. Questions on concepts, like bean validation, dependency injection, testing then doing a coding based on different requirements specified by the guys. No point for specifics here, the idea was to see my way of thinking when it comes to designing structures and processes for a problem.
5. Interview with the product manager
6. Final round with the engineering lead. Conversation about concepts like unit and integration testing, microservices: how I would approach the splitting of a monolithic app to microservice(s). What tools I like to use and why. (just to name a few questions I remember)
Overall experience is more than great, first time I feel a company knows exactly what they are looking for and focusing on mindset and way of thinking as opposed to testing only algorithms and popular technology related knowledge with no real reasons.
