I recently had a series of 4 in-person interviews for a Mobile Web Engineer position at the Dow Jones, specifically on the Wall Street Journal team.

I was recently sent a code challenge to build out an app where I create a Node/Express backend with GraphQL, & an interface of my choice and have that be my API endpoint for my React frontend.
