    IOS Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Badoo (New York, NY (US)) in February 2018.

    Interview

    It's Skype interview from London office. It's the first stage of the hiring process.

    I am amazed by how the interviewer is so helpful for the interview process. Before this first stage, I had conversation with the interviewer about 3 weeks ago. So they really want us to be ready for the interview.

    Product Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Badoo (London, England).

    Interview

    The interview process here was truly heinous. For me it went on roughly 4 months. I had to do an assignment before even having a first interview. Just a bunch of hoops and ladders to go through, with a lot of incomplete information. There was completely different information fed to different candidates, which was all quite shady and misleading. In the end they didn't fill the role. I'm pretty sure they went through the process just to use candidate's ideas.

    English Community Operations Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Badoo (London, England) in November 2019.

    Interview

    I applied for another role with the same company via email, I soon received an email from the recruiter (Bryony) who informed me that there is another role in the company which would be better suited to my skillset. I had a brief phone conversation with her and was then asked to fill out a scenario based questionnaire. This resulted in a Skype interview with the team, and then a final interview with the Lead and Head of Community operations.

    Overall a very positive and welcoming experience. Bryony was very helpful and friendly; I was well informed every step of the way.

    Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Badoo (London, England) in October 2019.

    Interview

    I applied through the LinkedIn website. The recruiting process was quite quick and well-structured - it took around 2.5 weeks (from the first contact with the HR to the job offer).
    I was glad that I was dealing with one recruiter the whole time, she went through all the stages of the process with me and was really helpful.

    There were 4 stages of the interview process:
    - A phone call with the HR specialist (lasted 10-15 min).
    - 2 online questionnaires, it included: a translation practice, responding to customer complaints and the product description tasks.
    - A 1h Skype interview with 2 members of the team (most of the questions were related to my background and previous experience).
    - The final interview with the Head of the Department (we went through my CV and my answers to the questionnaires) and with my future manager.

    The team was very nice and friendly and I could tell they genuinely wanted me to do well. I got my offer less than a week later and accepted it the same day.

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Badoo (London, England) in October 2019.

    Interview

    The whole process was very straightforward:
    1. An hour long chat about previous experience and opportunities
    2. Take home assignment, which was tough but extremely interesting to complete
    3. Several interviews on site (Product team, Engineering, Senior management)
    4. Offer

    It was very well explained what to expect from every stage of the process, so I have a very positive experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Almost every on site interview had questions related to my previous experience and the take home assignment. I really appreciated that every person I had interviews with took time to go through my solution and prepared questions in advance.   Answer Question

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Badoo (London, England).

    Interview

    The interview process is very long, and the recruiters are not good at organising or getting back to you.
    I did both the face to face call, and a full presentation in my own time over a week.
    I arrived for a final face to face to be told two people were not there, and so another interview would have to be planned.
    I was subsequently told on a Tuesday I was having my Final Final.. interview on Thursday and timings were to be confirmed, and then was ghosted until Friday despite multiple emails and voicemails left.
    When I was finally contacted, I was told they were waiting to get hold of the CEO and we will have to wait until the week he returned from a business trip.
    Since then I have emailed, and have had absolutely no response.... so still in the dark.

    For a company which prides themselves on building meaningful connections, why not start with your recruitment team and potential employees. :)

    Russian Community Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Badoo (London, England) in September 2019.

    Interview

    I would say my general experience with them was neutral but lingering towards negative.

    First HR agent e-mailed and then called me for pre-screening questions. Later she had sent 2 links for online assessment.

    First was fully based on translation, second required their app to be installed and tested and then provide replies to customer complains.

    I spent around 3.5 hours doing all that.

    She got back few days after saying I had made quite a few grammar mistakes and also had not complete all the tasks, so they would not be progressing with me. Later turned out she had not passed all my tasks herself to the team who checked the tests. Obviously the impression was spoiled right away.

    Next day she wrote again saying now they had checked everything and found "other" mistakes. No evidence, no breakdown was provided.

    The whole process left rather bad aftertaste, it also did not look fully transparent to me. HR lady made a bad impression with her own mistakes.
