    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Adap.tv in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Process took about 2-3 weeks, was contacted through emails and given 3 phone interviews. First was just a general knowledge interview with fizzbuzz questions essentially. Next was a question about designing an algorithm to run in linear time and tell if large sets of strings contained a palindrome for any of each other. The third interview was much easier and just asked about string to int conversion. All were conducted over the phone and written in a google.docs sheet.
    The engineers seemed very nice, and said I answered the questions correctly but, was not given the job.

    Interview Questions
    • The hardest one was a basic algorithm question, you had to explain why you were doing things and what choices you were making/how they would effect run time and space.   Answer Question

    Met people at career fair. The person whom I talked to was a software engineer and asked me basic questions about my resume and what data structures you used. Working of that data structure internally and its complexity. After two weeks I got an email from HR for scheduling a technical phone interview. The interview went well apart from one problem where I was stuck. When asked for feedback he told I won't be a pessimist and all you did well. I tried following up with HR but no response. No rejection mail nothing.
