      Recently encountered "Blackcode" which would appear to be a British recruitment front end for "Photon", an Indian services company.

      Went along to an interview, it was only when I saw the time zones in the interview invite (well, and the names) that I figured out what was being arranged.

      Got marked down in the interview for saying that I'd rather deliver something late but working, over on time but broken ("which is our company's philosophy")

                  Yep, very typical: it's fun to see how they start with the best intentions, then descope tons of requirements to define the bare MVP, then descope some more, and then finally end up going live with a product that is de facto worse than what was there before.

                    I have found that in interviews conducted from India the interviewers tend to ask questions incredibly specific to the language/framework/platform in question rather than try to determine the candidates level of competence and experience.

                    It leaves me with an uncomfortable feeling that the interviewers don't really know what they are talking about.

                      Yes - or try at all to get to know your sense of humour, how you come across, how honest you are, what makes you tick etc (something British interviewers are also bad at doing)

                      Basically "you may have such and such qualification, but can you get on your hands and knees and plug the cables back in if needed or will you just sit there?" and "would I sit next to you for a beer". I'd argue both of those are more important than knowing what artefacts go into a scrum ceremony.
