    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (Indianapolis, IN (US)) in June 2019.

    Was contacted via recruiter from an application I put in a few months before. From first contact to offer the process took approximately 5 weeks.

It was a very straight forward process and the recruiter was available for any questions I had along the way. Every team member I met with was approachable and easy to talk to. I had a few panel interviews conducted virtually, which was a great way to see how this team interacts and works together.
