    I have been working at A Thinking Ape (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Lots of opportunity to grow and learn. You can move into higher/different roles easily if you are willing to put in the work. Basically, you are rewarded for the work you put in, and there is always more to do if you are willing to.

    - Great culture and work environment, weekly catered lunches, fun events, flexible hours, and all-round positive and motivating atmosphere.

    Cons

    - Probably not the best place to work if you don't like lots of responsibility and having to work at night/the weekend if things are on fire

    Advice to Management

    - Continue being transparent and honest with your employees, it makes us proud to work here!

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at A Thinking Ape (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Starts off with a quick Skype tour of the office with the recruiter. Then there were two subsequent 30 minute technical Skype interviews over codeshare. First interviewer gave a binary tree question and an example of the expected behaviour of the function I was to implement. Focus seemed to be on recursion and problem solving. The interviewer did not webcam nor talk much. Second interviewer was friendlier and more talkative and did webcam. Second question had to do with design and knowledge of data structures in terms of functionality and complexity.

    Interview Questions

    • Given a binary tree of integer values, return True if there are any partial or complete paths down the tree's root such that the sum of the values along the path sum up to the value of the root, and False otherwise.   1 Answer
