    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.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Badoo (London, England) in November 2016.

    Interview

    4 slow paced interviewswith no feedback whatsoever, it was very time consuming and I believe the interview process should be streamlined further and reduce unwanted screeening Group screening was quite good with lots of questions thrown at you, it takes atleas 4 hours overall once you are on site.

    Human Resources Manager Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Badoo (London, England) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was conducted by the current HR Manager who is about to leave the company and the Talent Acquisition Manager. On arrival I was shown around the very impressive Soho-based office before meeting my interviewers. I haven't had any update or feedback following the interview (in spite of chasing) but I have assumed I haven't been successful (no news is usually bad news). Lack of feedback is the main reason why I am dissatisfied and disappointed with this interview experience. I only read the Glassdoor reviews after the interview but a number of questions I was asked made more sense to me after seeing these reviews. My impression is that Badoo may be looking for an HR person who will be comfortable with carrying out the decisions of senior management without questioning them or agreeing with them.

    Senior QA Engineer Interview

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

    Application

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

    Interview

    One pre-screening call and two video technical calls.
    HR person requested to have 3 calls during the process. He was late for each of them (15-40 mins delay).
    There were also two one-hour calls with technical questions conducted by QA guys. No introduction was given, answers had to be given from the very start. The dialog in both calls was held very arrogantly. Intonations were rude, questions sometimes were not clear or even irrelevant.
    I find Badoo hiring process to be rude and disrespectful. The company has no corporate culture at all in this area.

    Product Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Badoo in May 2017.

    Interview

    I got an email a couple of days after applying on the web site.

    The Skype interview was a week later and was pretty easy - general questions about the design, experience and some questions about the specific work examples.

    A week later I got an email with a test task to complete. The task was meant to test my UX skills, thinking process and UI skills. The actual task was to create a design for an imaginary new functionality. I completed the task using common design approaches and guidelines.

    A week later I got an email thanking me for the interest in the company. The explanation can be summed as "you did what you should have done and you didn't do what we didn't ask". As this made no sense I thought they selected someone else and just gave me some randomly generated reply.

    But a month later they still had the job opening.

    And that same month later they implemented the "imaginary" new functionality the test task was about in the actual product. The only major difference was the location of the functionality - instead of standalone page (test task), an existing page (product) was used. This makes a difference, but still approaches could have been taken from the completed test task and implemented into the real product. There were no similarities with my design, but I assume I was not the only one given the task.

    I get the idea of test task, but if the feature is presented as imaginary and turns out to be in the real product, it looks sketchy the least. What it looks like the most is a Spec work without even disclosing it.
