Engineering Interview

San Jose, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at ARM Holdings in November 2010.

Interview Details – I received a phone call from the hiring manager and had a short discussion to come in for an on-site interview in the ARM Physical IP Division. I first met with HR, followed by 8 engineers. All interviewers were pleasant to speak with; most asked a combination of behavioral and technical questions.

I came away with a good impression of ARM. I did not receive an offer, as they were looking for someone with more experience.

Interview Question – What is the logic function of this pass transistor schematic?   Answer Question
