    Fast-paced working environment. Very supportive of growth and progression. Strong company values and mission. Amazing people.

    Cons

    Sometimes all consuming. Started to employe more temporary freelancers who don't have the same values and worth ethic.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at OVO Energy (Bristol, England) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Process took four weeks from application to rejection. This included 6 hours of interviewing, which included a 30 minute phone interview, a 1 hour 30 minute face to face interview, a 2 hour code test on Codility, a 1 hour pair programming exercise, a 30 minute interview with HR, and a 30 minute interview with a hiring manager.

    Overall the process was inefficient and repetitive and gave me a negative impression of Ovo.
