Stage 1: Phone screen with recruiter
Stage 2: Technical phone screen #1 The first technical interview focuses on basic CS knowledge of data structures and debugging skills. It is mostly verbal where the interviewers give questions/situations and the candidate is supposed to give the most optimized approach to solve them.
Stage 3: Technical phone screen #2 The second round focuses purely on algorithms with several programming questions in the span of 45 mins via Google docs. There is also a mix of behavioral questions and conversation about the company and culture fit.
Stage 4: Onsite interview, though this is sometimes skipped
Pathrise is a career accelerator that helps people land their dream jobs. We regularly place our fellows at top companies like Apple, Amazon, and Meta. Our mentors have experience at companies like Apple, giving fellows the inside scoop on interview and company culture in 1-on-1 sessions.
We can’t guarantee you a job at a specific company like Apple. But we do guarantee you a great job–if you don’t accept an offer in 1 year, you pay nothing. Our income share agreement means you only pay with a percentage of your income at your new role.
Mentors work with fellows at every stage in search, helping them build the skills necessary to be the best candidate possible. Fellows in Pathrise usually see a 2-4x increase in application response rates, 1.5-3x increase in interview scores, and 10-20% increase in salary through negotiation.
