Please describe the interview process and assessments.
The interview process was spread across two interviews, and two assessments, wherein the first was a cultural interview and the second interview was a technical one. The assessments covered problem-solving and coding skills.
I had 5 rounds of interviewing round 1- video interview round 2 - behavioural interview round 3 - systems thinking interview round 4 - ravens advanced matrices round 5 - coding challenge
The interview process was very long, 4 stages from memory. But very thorough.
1. Upload a video answering three questions (really general question, about yourself, why you are interested in this job, etc) 2. Phone interview with HR, talk about yourself (background) 3. Culture interview with tech 4. Coding challenge 5. Onsite interview, about system thinking
At the time I came through there was a video interview, where you answer several questions on a video you submit to the company. This was followed by technical and behavioural interviews at the office.
Very person orientated. Not too much on your skill level as they train you.
The interview process has drastically changed from two years ago. When I did it I was with 20 other candidates and we were split into 6 groups and given a "customer" to make a lego structure to test teamwork and communication. We also had interviews questions with some managers.

2-hour group assessment - problem solving and team collaboration to solve a problem Individual assessment - behavioural/cultural interview
What questions were you asked in your interviews?
A lot of cultural questions regarding my personality, hobbies and goals.
Cultural questions, situational questions and self-assessing questions.
What is your greatest weakness/strength? Your biggest achievement in the past? What is the difference between Java and JavaScript? What do you like to do in your leisure time?
It was a while ago now but I think we were asked pretty standard interview questions - tell us about strengths and weaknesses and such. The technical interview was more about finding out how we thought about the problem and how we would solve it.
How to build a toy factory. Good team player etc
Name 3 strengths and 3 weaknesses Design a scalable process for a toy factory
cultural fit questions - about values, and systems thinking - to show how would solve a problem
what is something surprising that people wouldn't know about you?
Behavioural, and also about my motivators.
Questions related to how much of a team player I am, How do I solve any issue. How do I face failures? Explaining about my success.
Group assessment - Build a city using lego (different requirements for the city were given/modified throughout the process) Individual assessment - study and work experience, questions about individual strengths, weaknesses, learning and growth mindset, etc.
