    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs in November 2018.

    Interview

    I applied Nov 2018 through an agency. Process took about 3 weeks.
    Started with a call. I spoke to one of the engineers about the structure of the team and my experiences. It was really short I felt like I was trying to keep the conversation going.
    Later they send me a very easy coding challenge followed by life coding session with some Scala/functional programming questions. It required knowledge of OOP and Scala specific constructs like Case classes and Pattern Matching. All very basic. Interviewers were nice and patient. Overall the experience was very pleasant. I can say that shortly after that series of recruiting process changes slightly. Still sending similar coding task but there is no live coding session but technical questions are much harder and require higher understatement of Scala world.

    Interview

    it was much like the standard fastream interview process. i would look up information on that for more details. for the telephone interview, they are just trying to help you. so don''t be concerned if they interupt and ask for a more specific answer. if you can give it to them, you'll actually do really well.
