I was once interviewed by this Startup company. Everything went well and I passed all 5 rounds on online interviews from manager to VP level technical as well as management and had no issues. Out of blue this team lead reached out who specifically wanted to interview another round. Just after that I got rejection. And when I reached back for reasoning/feedback. They didn’t had anything to add other than they found another guy in local guy for a remote job !!
