Absolutely, id let the recruiter or whoever your point person know you have received an offer but still interested in continuing talking with them, that should expedite the process

Design Director said it. But I’ll reiterate. Letting them know about the offer means they have to quickly decide to make a move to hire you or admit they’re not interested. But it’ll skip you past those annoying 5-round interviews where it’s like, “And for interview #4, we’d also like you to meet Bob from accounting….”
