    Front-End Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Iron Group (London, England) in May 2016.

    Interview

    There were three steps overall:

    The first Skype interview was between the interim CTO and myself. He asked a bunch of questions about my skill set and experience on each topic, the methodologies I use. No theoretical questions about how to solve a maze or how to validate a form.

    After this one the other developers sent me an assessment which was a PSD with a list of how-tos including tools and other instructions. They also asked me to provide a description about how to use the finished project.

    The third part was a Skype chat with two of the Front-end dev guys a day after I sent my finished project. They were extremely kind. We talked about their projects, tools, workflow and my role in the team. Still not a sign of unnecessary questions about theoretical things like what a box-model is or how would I optimize a cycle. I guess they could just simply measure my skills through my Github profile and the assessment I made for them.
