    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Abstract (Washington, DC (US)) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Steps:

    - Phone Screen with Recruiter
    - Interview with Engineering Manager
    - Interview with Front-End Dev
    - Interview with Product Manager
    - Interview with Back-End Dev
    - Interview with CTO (didn't reach this point)

    It was refreshing to interview for a position that didn't ask me to go through a LeetCode-like challenge. Most of my interviews pertained to discussions about my experience, how I work with a team, how I approach developing an API, what high-quality code looks like to me, etc. A+ to Abstract for not going down the coding challenge route. This was a much more holistic process.
