    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at OVO Energy (London, England) in May 2020.

    Interview

    A chat with an engineering manager followed by a simple js coding problem. Following that there is a set of systems design, coding, and behavioural interviews. They are all fairly straight forward. The coding test is a coderpad type interview where I had to complete an incomplete react app and write some tests. The systems design interview was an interview to design an api and infrastructure of a simple system. The behavioural interview was a standard chat about "times when" and thoughts on particular engineering practices.

    During the process there were a couple of instances of emails going unanswered until chased up or calls being promised at certain times but not being made. After the interview process I was told everyone was impressed and wanted me to join the team but at a level TWO levels below what I interviewed at (I was offered essentially a junior level despite having 12 years of experience and having been a lead engineer in a variety of projects). Honestly totally confusing and in the end a complete waste of time.

    Interview Questions

    • complete missing functionality in a react app, and design the api and architecture of a simple app (and then scale it up)   Answer Question
