    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at DigitalOcean.

    Interview

    I was first contacted by an "external" recruiter, followed by a brief interview with an "internal" recruiter. Then I had a technical interview with a senior engineer. The next phase involved a series interviews with various individual contributors to determine a culture fit. Lastly I was interviewed by several managers and higher level leadership.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't recall the specifics of the questions, but they were fairly typical, such as: how do I handle difficult circumstances; how do I juggle a variety of seemingly-conflicting priorities; how do I help under-performing engineers. I was surprised at how little I was asked about specific technical details, but on the other hand the interviews tipped the balance of questions toward my management approach/style.   Answer Question
