The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Akamai (San Mateo, CA) in June 2009.

Interview

Everyone was nice enough. I had a phone screen then onsite interview with several of the engineers, and the hiring manager. They asked several general programming questions (Sorting, searching, etc.). Unfortunately they asked nothing related to operating systems, even tho the job was directly related to the Linux kernel. The interviews are not very skilled. They did very little to explain the questions (even when asking for more info) and gave you very little insight into what they wanted as an answer.
