    Three step interview process. Landed initial interview through an on campus career fair at UCSB. Came in for a two segment interview at the Appfolio the first time. Met with the Director of Customer Success, and then a Customer Success Manager. Was called back in to shadow a Customer Success employee a few weeks later, and then went through another brief interview with a different Customer Success Manager. Then received one final phone call from the Director of Customer Success with the job offer. Whole process from career fair to job offer to about a month and a half.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at AppFolio (San Diego, CA (US)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The recruiter contacted me and talked about the Engineering positions at AppFolio. I accepted to talk to their Director. The first round was a Technical Phone Screen. Then I had 3 onsite 1:1 interviews, then another onsite technical interview along with a team lunch. The final interview was with the VP of Engineering.
    Finally they made me an offer but it was less than what I make in my current job, so declined it.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at AppFolio.

    Interview

    3 skype interviews managed by a 4th person
    each interview lasts an hour.
    different interviewers who did apparently not speak to each other about the previous interviews. sometimes redundant questions (such as can you name your most proud programming project).
    overall relaxed atmosphere
    this 50 words minimum is not helping, i guess

    Interview Questions

    • nothing out of the box.
      some programming questions, recursive, then the same problem iterative, questions about my computer science background, different languages that i used and why etc.
      friendly ppl

    Interview

    Three interviews. First one has two general coding questions, listing all the prime numbers. Second one is about software design and computer network fundamentals like http, tcp protocols. There is a question like, what will happen when you click www.google.com and press enter. The third one is basically describe your project and explain your code on github.

    Interview Questions

    • For the question "when will happen when you click www.google.com and press enter", you are supposed to give a lot of details, like TCP, IP, HTTP, DNS, etc.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at AppFolio (Santa Barbara, CA (US)) in May 2014.

    Interview

    They had about 6 to 7 rounds of interviews.

    The first one was with the VP of Engineering. He is a nice guy, really smart (according to me). He asked me a lot of Automation & Design Questions from my previous organization projects.

    Then the Director of Software Engineering interviewed me, he was very knowledgeable. He asked about all the tools I had used. The questions were simple about OOPS, DataStructures. Not really tough questions.

    Then I was interviewed by an Engineer, he asked me a puzzle - if there were 15 horses, and if you could race 3 at a time. Whats the minimum number of races that is required to determine the top three horses. He then asked me to generalize this problem for any number of horses. Then a python code for the same to finish it off.

    Then the QA Director, asked me a bunch of questions mainly on product. They explained their product clearly. After that they asked me a bunch of QA Questions mostly related to Sprint Planning, Agile Process, Regression Tests, etc. If you are in QA for a long time - this should be easy for you.

    All the interviewers were nice, they try to help you to think - once they have asked their question.

    NOTE : if you donot know something, say you dont know !! They appreciate it. In my case I was not good in JScript & Ruby - I told them and they liked it.

    Negotiation

    They start off offering you a very little package.

    You can easily demand more than what they offer - if you feel you deserve it. They will try their best to match it.
