    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Bol.com.

    Interview

    1. Recruiter call,
    2. Personality and IQ Test; which is a pseudo science process, based on nothing scientifically proven, recruiters had no answer when faced with this fact, they just follow their orders blindly to keep their jobs.
    3. Technical take home task (Kalah game)
    4. Technical discussion
