    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at A Thinking Ape (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Starts off with a quick Skype tour of the office with the recruiter. Then there were two subsequent 30 minute technical Skype interviews over codeshare. First interviewer gave a binary tree question and an example of the expected behaviour of the function I was to implement. Focus seemed to be on recursion and problem solving. The interviewer did not webcam nor talk much. Second interviewer was friendlier and more talkative and did webcam. Second question had to do with design and knowledge of data structures in terms of functionality and complexity.

    Interview Questions

    • Given a binary tree of integer values, return True if there are any partial or complete paths down the tree's root such that the sum of the values along the path sum up to the value of the root, and False otherwise.   1 Answer
