Lead/Senior Software Engineer, IOS Mobile Applications Interview

Lead/Senior Software Engineer, IOS Mobile Applications
Seattle, WA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at in June 2013.

Interview Details – Contacted by a recruiter via LinkedIn inMail. After an informational call with the recruiter, she set up a phone screen with the hiring manager. The phone interview was pretty general- experience, a few technical questions, and then any questions I had about the job. After passing the phone interview, I had to take a programming test that lasted about 2 hours. It was done remotely over GoToMeeting and involved a programming exercise to create an iPhone app in XCode. After passing the programming test we set up an onsite interview. There were 5 interview sessions lasting on average 45 mins each. Several of the sessions were done via video conference or Skype. Questions covered the usual: object oriented design and data structures, iOS concepts, unit testing and UI automation, and work experience and behavioral. Lastly I talked to the hiring manager again about team fit and career goals.

Interview Question – Programming exercise was good- you had 1:15 hr in XCode to write a simple iOS application with data persistence, implement a shake motion gesture, localize it into french and spanish, and ensure the UI resized correctly. Then you had to write the test cases for your app. All told if you knew what you were doing you should have the basics done in under an hour. From there you can spend the rest of your time making the UI pretty.   Answer Question
