Our technical interview is designed to help us gain insight into your coding skills, problem-solving abilities and approach to collaboration. As part of the interview, we also consider your communication skills and critical thought process, which show your ability to solve a real-world problem in a role at Liberty Mutual. Don’t put pressure on yourself for a perfect score. It’s more important for us to see the way a candidate thinks through a problem.

Below you’ll find resources, guidelines and advice to get you ready for your upcoming interview. We’re here to support you every step of the way! Let’s get started.

The interview structure and what

to expect

  • To start, click on the link provided. The interview team will initiate the meeting, and you can ask any questions you need at that time. The platform supports both voice and video, but only records your code for review—no audio is recorded.
  • The technical interview team will be there to assist you throughout the session. They’ll ask questions and engage with you to help guide the process. While you’re free to use outside resources like Google or Stack Overflow for syntax reference, please avoid copying and pasting code that isn’t your own.
  • Remember to talk through your thought process as you solve problems. This will provide valuable insight into your approach and solutions.
