Software Development Engineer In Test (SDET) IV

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Microsoft in July 2007.

Interview Details – The initial communication started with a phone screen and a couple of technical questions. That was followed up by a second phone interview and then there was a day long interview with the hiring group in Redmond. The interview consisted of 7 in-person interviews.
Most of the questions were about algorithms and design.
Design a system that syncs data between 2 servers.
