    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at OpenJaw Technologies (Madrid (Spain)) in December 2018.

    Interview

    Very fast paced and to the point. I received feedback from them right away and I was able to meet several key people during the interviews to get a good idea about the company as well.
