First round was a video call with the hiring manager. The second stage was a presentation on how I'd launch a new feature. Overall it was a good experience and everyone I spoke with was very nice. They then provided a fairly detailed feedback on why I wasn't put forward to the next stage of the interview.

4-stage process where step-by-step you are given insight into the company and what to expect from each interview stage. Questions are relevant and do not over compensate. I did not feel like 'just another candidate' as everyone was friendly and down-to-earth.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ably in Jul 2021

Interview

1. Call with Head of People 2. Video call with several hiring managers 3. Video call (with exercise) with interim CTO and the people team The people at Ably are down to earth themselves but very reluctant to change - that was evident from their responses to changes I would make. The process was fast moving but the presentation that I was asked to complete for the final stage was very longwinded and longer than necessary. It felt as though I was doing their recruitment for them! It was a nice challenge but definitely not needed. My biggest bugbear was the fact I was rejected via email with little to no feedback. Completely unacceptable when you've committed hours of your time to not even get a phone call to talk things through. Need to step up here.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ably

Interview

Consisted of five interviews, one including a 30-40 minute presentation. All employees had a great balance of getting to know you as a person while understanding if you have the right skills and experience for the role. It was one of the best interviews I have experienced. Very structured, I got all my questions answered, felt at ease throughout and each stage made me more drawn to Ably.

Interview

It was a very pleasant interview experience. Communication on the process and timeline was very clear. Interviews could be challenging, but also extremely friendly. They also give you tons of opportunities to ask questions about Ably throughout the whole process. You'll also be introduced to a lot of team members so you get to know the team before joining :) I had to decline my offer due to personal reason. I am extremely gutted. Process: 1) 1:1 interview w/ Hiring Manager (Head of Sales) 2) 1:1 interview w/ another Sales Leader 3) 2nd 1:1 interview w/ Hiring Manager 4) HR Recruiter chat (check in, answer any questions from my end) 5) Panel interview (CEO/ Founder + Hiring Manager + 1 Sales Leader + 2 Sales peers)

Interview Questions
  • 1) Get to know you (personal ambition, why Ably, why start up, why this role etc.) 2) Sales related (walk through deals, sales process, sales methodology etc.) 3) Role play

Interview

Really enjoyed this interview process. I met a lot of the team, and felt like I'd gotten a good overview of the company. People were open but honest and didn't just share the highlights, which is very rare! The hiring manager was in touch with me quickly after every single step of the process, always offering detailed feedback. Steps: - 1:1 interview with head of people - work sample presentation with head of people + ops lead - culture & behavioral questions with two people across the company - short interview with both co-founders

Interview

The interview process was fine. Was great to meet the team and see how they work. The technology is really good as well and what they do is impressive. One advice: Make sure you turn on your camera when doing a video call. It may lead you not to receive an offer.
