Airbnb Rejection after Clearing Hackerrank coding test

Nov 26, 2019 13 Comments

Applied on Airbnb website for SWE role in paris. Got a hackerrank test the following day and i took the test and secured correct output for all test cases. Got a mail from HR in 30 mins congratulating me for doing well and set up a call , where he asked about experience and visa requirements etc.
Two days following that i got a mail saying they are not moving forward because they dont see my qualification a good match.

While rejection doesnt hurt , the reasoning behind it certainly does.
They had my resume , profile and answer to visa requirements from the application , why even send a test to candidate ,set up a call and then see for a match in qualifications.

    Do you need work visa sponsorship? If so, I’d start there.

    My guess is that something in your call was a red flag for team and company fit, or your exact mix of experiences didst match what they were hoping to find. Didnt match qualifications is often a generic rejection.

      Most likely couldn't explain a past project in enough depth as they would consider for the level.

      @wholsjack ,nope no question on project ,recruiter call was like 20 mins more of introduction and abstract about past experience , mostly about the roles location etc

    Often times visa quotas have been met, or they did not write the job description in a way that could pass a market test.
