    How to stay sane while working remotely | Monese

    There are many people who choose to work from home on occasion. Other times, everyone, including those who aren't used to working remotely, are strongly encouraged (or obliged) to work from home. In these cases, even those who've occasionally worked from home could experience a startling new shift due to prolonged periods inside.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Monese (London, England) in April 2019.

    Interview

    I came to Monese through an agent, I liked the company and I went ahead.
    My interview process started with a Skype call with an HR person to talk about my background, my experience and my current role.
    Then I received a code test to write a basic application using MVVM.
    And the last step was a face to face interview with part of the mobile team to talk about my solution to the code challenge, technical questions, architectures, patterns, third party libraries, testing, how I like to work, etc.
    The next day I received an offer but unfortunately I couldn't accept it for personal reasons.
    The whole process took about 3 weeks. The people were always nice and the environment there looked pretty well.
