    1. Senior Software Engineer, Developer Ecosystems Interview

      Average Interview

      I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Ably (London, England) in Sept 2023


      An internal recruiter from Ably contacted me, providing details about the position and their four-round interview process. I accepted the opportunity and moved forward with the initial screening round, led by him.

      The rounds consisted of:

      - Screening with in-house recruiter

      - Chat with one of the engineers (Eco Systems)

      - Take-home assignment

      - Technical and live-coding round with a Tech Lead (Eco Systems) and Senior Engineering Manager (Eco Systems)

      Ultimately, I received a rejection after the last round of the selection process. I really hope the decision-making was conducted with honesty and fairness.

      Without revealing any details, the questions they asked were directly related to challenges that would inevitably have been encountered while completing the technical task.
