The Interview Process

  1. We typically start with an online coding assessment. This assessment is designed to evaluate a candidate’s technical skill and problem-solving abilities.

  2. If the candidate makes it past the coding challenge, they will be invited to do a zoom interview where more of their technical abilities are assessed. Interviews typically take about 45-minutes.

  3. The final step of the interview process is a final round onsite. This interview takes place in our office and consists of an additional coding challenge as well as technical interviews. Candidates will meet with their potential teammates, tour our office, and learn more about DRW as a whole. After the onsite, a decision is made on whether or not to extend an offer to the candidate.
