Software Development Engineer In Test I (SDET) Interview

Software Development Engineer In Test I (SDET)
Seattle, WA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at in July 2012.

Interview Details – I applied online to many of their job postings, got a call from HR after a month. They had an hiring event , so after HR screening, they called me directly for in-person interview. Interviews started on time. I had 4 technical , 1 behavioral and 1 HR round, each for around 40-45 mins. All the interviewers were very helpful. At no point I felt uncomfortable. When I got stuck, they provided hints to help me arrive at answer. Overall a good experience in interview, they confirmed selection on same day and I got offer letter within a week.

Write a program to calculate maximum number of points that you can cover. He later asked me to improve solution by avoiding paths already visited.   View Answer
