    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Knewton in September 2014.

    Interview

    Talked to some employees at a career fair. They liked me and gave me a USB with a coding challenge on it. Completed it in 2 or 3 hours and then forwarded it to the team. They answered back asking for my resume. When I sent that to them I then experienced radio silence. When I reached out to HR and recruiting to check up on the process I never received an answer

    Interview Questions

    • Coding challenge consisted of a list of user band likes and finding bands that appear on users its together more than N amount of times.   Answer Question
