I applied online. I interviewed at Illumina

Interview

Sent a HireVue technical assessment and scheduled a video interview at the same time. Interview questions are Google-style Software Engineering questions which are timed. Apply if you're more of a Software Engineer rather than from a Bioinformatics background because the questions are very challenging for a bioinformatician

Relatively straightforward process. Interview with lead scientist, followed by a short call with an HR recruiter. Final round of interviews involved hour-long meetings with 5 members of the team. Many technical questions, though mostly relating to the job description and past experience listed on the resume. Entire process took about 2-3 weeks.
