    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Akamai.

    Interview

    I was approached by a recruiter. I blew through the pre-screen and had a great conversation about the company, so then the recruiter set up a phone interview with a Solutions Architect. It went poorly because this person obviously had very limited interviewing experience--it felt more like an interrogation than a conversation. In fact, when I answered a question by way of analogy, he was completely baffled!

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Gave me a set of questions to prepare and asked about HTTP,DNS in Technical round. There are behavioral, logical and HR rounds as well. The set of questions were tricky and tested my knowledge on HTTP, DNS and a bit about programming. In the behavioral round, they asked about various situations during my projects and how I dealt them.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Akamai (Cambridge, MA) in February 2012.

    Interview

    First HR Phone Interview, then Tech Interview, then invited for on-site interview with new team of 4 members lasting 45 mins each, asking relative questions to the kind of job.

    People were down to earth, working on cutting edge stuff.

    Unfortunately I was not selected because they went with someone who has worked more closely with the technology.
