    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Interactive Intelligence.

    Interview

    I met with Interactive Intelligence at my university job fair.
    The first interview was a call with the intern program manager. This was around 45 minutes and full of behavioral questions. The purpose was to understand your experience, understand what you know about interactive intelligence, and determine if you would fit with them.

    The second interview was a technical phone screen with the team leader. The phone screen consisted of simple questions from loops, basic object oriented programming concepts, and simple data structures.

    The third interview was a technical onsite interview. I was able to meet and talk with the developers on the team and learn about their first hand experience on projects. The interview was split up into two parts and I met with a different team member for each. For the first half, I was given different code snippets and I had to explain what the code did and how I would refactor it. The code snippets given are written in code that you list on your resume. I was also asked several questions about team experiences and management, version control, and few behavioral questions. The second half was more technical and focused on Object Oriented programming principles. First few questions were basic such as, what is an object, difference between private and public, interface vs inheritance, when to use static, etc. After the questions, the interviewer gave me a variety of scenarios and I would have to write an implementation to solve the problem on whiteboard. After finishing the two halves, I was able to speak with the team leader. The team leader did not have any questions for me; it was more of an opportunity to directly ask him questions and learn more about the company.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Interactive Intelligence.

    Interview

    The hiring process was very well done. It starts with a phone screen with basic question, goes on to phone interview with an engineer with behavioral questions and ends with an on site interview with 2 to 3 interviewers. All in all it was a good experience, the last interview would be the most difficult if I had to pick.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Initial screening at a university; invited to go on-site to interview with 6 people (3 technical, 3 managerial), each for 30 minutes. This was for a Systems Engineer position, which is different from what I have now (Software Engineer). The Software Engineer position was a short 30 minute informal interview (I had been at working here for 3 years), resulting in a department change.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Since I had a Masters of Science degree, I was able to negotiate several thousand dollars higher from the starting salary for people straight out of college.

    A tough but fair interview process, I got the impression that even if I weren't a good fit for the position they were interviewing for they would have tried to find something in the organization for me.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Interactive Intelligence in October 2014.

    Interview

    Interview process was very pleasant and well organized. It started with a HR phone interview followed by a technical phone screening. The technical screening was pretty standard. Anyone with sufficient system and networking knowledge would know most of the answers. I received quick feedback and was invited to an onsite interview

    When scheduling the onsite interview they did a great job working around my current schedule. Upon arriving everyone was very friendly and made what would usually be a stressful day enjoyable. I got the standard tour, followed by short meeting with HR then was taken to a conference room where I went through four thirty minute 1 on 1 interviews. The interviews were conducted very professionally and included a mix of technical and personality questions. They also had time for me to ask questions and gave me an insight into the department and day to day culture. I was then given a less formal tour of the department and shown outside.

    I heard back from HR a couple days later with an offer. Overall this was a great interview experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Don't over think the questions. If the answer seems obvious it probably is. They are mostly looking at your thought process and troubleshooting skills.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Very laid back process. They will ask you questions to learn about specific technical experience and then questions about you. The interviews do start out with phone call first.
