    Software Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview


    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Connected Lab (Toronto, ON (Canada)).


    Got contacted by a recruiter.

    During the first round they invited me over to their office. It was your standard interview; I was asked about my past experience, personal projects and some white board questions.

    For the second round I had an awkward meeting with the CEO at a coffee shop. The thing just turned turned bizarre after I somehow ended up at their company event. There was clearly no process in place.

    Few days later I got an email from the recruiter saying that the CEO thought I was lying about something. Well...OK.

    Back when I interviewed, the company wreaked of that typical startup bs:
    bro culture...check, buzzwords...check, underpaying by at least $10000 below market rate check, long hours...check, infantilization of engineers...check
