Senior Software Engineer Interview

Senior Software Engineer
Richmond, BC (Canada)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Broadcom in May 2012.

Interview Details – First I was asked about my experience, complicate tasks I had to solve and methods of solving. So basically it was a conversation of two engineers: ways of solve this or that issues. After 1 hour of 1:1 conversation another engineer came. That was a skill test. Basic questions regarding embedded software development, locks, interrupts, priority inversion, ARM assembler semaphore operations; issues with multi-CPU systems.

Interview Questions

  • ARM assember semaphore operation command. Show an example in assembler if this command was not provided.   View Answer
  • 2D maze general solution algorithm   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I got more than expected, so I did not negotiate though it is possible as my future experience shows
