Is it normal for a company to require a verbal yes before extending a written offer?

Yes, because they don’t want to go through the effort to get formal approvals unless they know you’re a yes.


I don’t want to go through their bs 6th interview and second take home assignment unless I know they’re a yes.


Yes. You can start negociating when/ after a verbal offer is given. If there is an aggreement, the written one should come in 1-2 days. Have just done this during the last few days.



Do people usually just lie and then reject the offer? Lol

Yes to gauge if you are interested before they seek leadership approval and go through the formal process
