Interview

First call from recruiter was great. Hiring manager, not so much. The guy had no idea what he’s doing… they have no idea who they should hire or any concept of threat analysis and detection/response. Do not work in this shop! Liability.

I applied online. I interviewed at Circle Internet Financial in Jul 2021

Interview

Steps: 1. Recruiter screening 2. HackerRank challenge for 90 minutes 3. Take home task to implement a weird web app 4. Live tech interview to implement a new feature to home task 5. UI Cross Functional Collaboration 6. Behavioral/HM Onsite Interview 7. VP Engineering Interview 8. Recruiter Debrief Their interview process is absolutely broken. I highly recommend you to avoid unless you're dying to work for this company. Interviewing with Google is like walking in the park compared to this non-sense. HackerRank task ask you to implement a functional game in 90 minutes with pure HTML/CSS/JS. Which is not an ideal interview task. Measures specific very knowledge within an unreasonable time. Recruiter told me that I passed the test with high marks. Implementing a game in 90 minutes is not enough so you get a take home task to implement a weird web app. You get an Express API which you can't modify to build the app on top of this. Even reading and understanding the requirements take considerable about of time. They claim it should take around 7 hours to implement which is almost a full working day. But, we all know that implementing a full-featured web app including UI/UX takes much more time. I finished the task in 2 days and it took around 10 hours to finish. Recruiter told me that I passed with high marks. Live tech interview takes an hour. 30 mins chat, 30 mins implementing a new feature to take home task. TBH, I struggled a lot implementing the new feature. In 30 mins, you need to understand the requirements, come up with a UI/UX idea, navigate through tons of files and dependencies, deal with TypeScript errors, think about how to refactor your existing code, deal with IDE, build process, communicate, implement the feature. I didn't perform well. It was absolute chaos for both parties. The rest of the interviews were all about talking. At the end of 8 steps, I didn't get an offer. I don't want to sound arrogant but I was not going to accept the offer anyway unless I get an offer that I can't refuse. The amount of red flags were crazy. I also don't understand why it takes so much interviews to see that I'm not a good fit. It's obvious that the interview process is designed by people who work there for years. They haven't interviewed with any good companies for years so they have no idea how to do it at all. I'm sure they can't pass their own interview process with different tasks. They know their own questions well so they also expect you to know every single line you need to write in advance. If you go through all the steps like me it takes so much time and effort. I went through all the steps just because it felt like I already spent so much time and didn't make sense to stop at that point. I don't recommend anybody to interview with this company. Don't waste your time. Go interview with big tech. It's much easier and worthy. It's a shame that a successful tech startup like this to NOT know how to interview and miss tons of passionate, talented people.

I was scheduled for a call with the Hiring Manager, but it seems the role got filled and it was immediate radio silence. No courtesy call or email to let me know they won't be moving forward.

Interview

Another codility/hackerrank test. In my carrer, I already passed technical interviews from Amazon, Splunk, Okta, ... and have failed this stupid test. On my side, this is the last time I accepting doing automated technical tests. Companies that don't think it is necessary to invest time to filter candidates should be avoided. Please boycott Circle !

After initial screen, it was a pretty casual interview process, not very technical. Several rounds with various senior team members from the CEO down. Seems like a professional HR operation.

  • If hired, what do you expect your first six months at the firm to look like.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Circle Internet Financial in Apr 2021

Interview

I applied online and there were a number of rounds. - Standard Hackerrank coding assessment - Recruiter meeting - Virtual onsite consisting of 3 rounds: API design, Coding session related to the API, Behavioral interview with Manager. Followed by recruiter wrapping up. Totaling 4 hours. The first two technical interviews were with engineers that were helpful and easy to talk with. The last behavioral interview was slightly awkward like they did not want to be there and it ended early. The difficulty of the technical interviews were average. The coding session is performed on your own development platform so make sure to pick something you are comfortable using and debugging with. Both are very collaborative. Behavioral interview had very standard questions. (past challenges, project you are proud of etc) I was given a rejection email 1 week after the virtual onsite. After spending a good amount of time on this process I would have liked to get some feedback on why my application was rejected. However after multiple times contacting the recruiter there was no response. It is disappointing to see companies do this.
