Application

I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Erlang Solutions (London, England) in March 2011.

Interview

I applied via their website and heard back on the same day via email. The first interview was via Skype with two senior developers. Their focus was on ensuring I had the ability to architect systems which would scale, could design with fault tolerance in mind, and most importantly, think concurrently. It was very relaxed and friendly. I was asked to do a belbin test. The second interview was in their London office where I did the certification exam, I was interviewed by their technical director and operations manager. Focus here was on the ability to manage customers and act professionally in front of clients. How to manage difficult situations and expectations. I also got the chance to speak to some of my future colleagues. They had scheduled the interview in conjunction with an Erlang meetup, so I stayed on that evening.

Interview Questions

  • There are no difficult questions, only specific answers which they are looking for. Either you know them, or you don't. Whilst the interview process seemed seamless and felt easy, what I learned later is that a lot of background checks were done. They had reviewed by contributions on github and don't forget they know everyone in the Erlang world. This meant they spoke to (as far as I know) two other former colleagues and one of my university professors!   Answer Question

Negotiation

I was made an offer in line with my expectations. No negotiations.
