About a month! It did take some time for someone/HR to reach out to me after I submitted my application (about three weeks). But roughly a month from first interview to offer.

about 6 weeks for my current role

Last time around it was about a month. This time it was one week (recruiter reached out on Monday, interviewed Tues, Wed, Thurs, got the offer on Friday)

About a month

The whole process was a week and a half. Recruiter reached out and set up interviews. Next week had two interviews back to back and got an offer two days later.

A few months.
