    Multiple rounds of technical interviews--the first interview was a coding challenge and second round was a virtual interview with a software developer. After every round, they got back to me quickly.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    I was contacted after my university career fair and sent a Hackerrank coding challenge shortly after. The questions were fairly challenging, but they gave me the name of the question beforehand which gave me a rough idea for the type of question to expect. They gave me results of the challenge within a week.

    Interview

    Was an online hacker rank challenge, then a non-technical phone "chat" with a recruiter, then a Karat video interview, then two onsite interviews and a hiring manager interview. There was quite a wait between processes.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Palantir Technologies (New York, NY (US)) in November 2019.

    Interview

    The interview process is as follows: non-technical phone interview, then technical phone interview with ^Karat, then onsite. I only got to the technical phone interview part. I was interviewing for Palantir New York. The interviewer I was with was super nice and we got along really well. Too bad I didn't make it to the onsite!

    Interview Questions

    • For the technical phone interview: first they ask you about your experience and projects to break the ice. Next I had a series of general programming knowledge questions such as "X is trying to solve Problem P, and doing it this way: blablabla... What is he doing wrong?"

      The last part of the interview was Leetcode easy-type of questions. The first one was really easy to solve, second one a bit less trivial as it involved merging small lists into a single contiguous one. I got stuck on part of the algorithm, but still managed to solve it in time.

      In the end, I thought I did well since I finished both problems and correctly answered the questions before, but I got a rejection email a week later. I think this is what sets Palantir and the like aside from other companies: they don't want you to do well, they want you to do perfect. More specifically, you are expected to answer non-hard questions quickly and without stumbling, at least in my experience.

      If you are reading this because you have an interview with them: don't panic, and make sure you're prepared enough so that you quickly arrive to a solution for any type of leetcode easy-medium   Answer Question
