I applied online. The interview process started with a call from Akamai recruiter. It was a basic first call with 10 basic technical questions at the end. The second round was on phone with one of the managers. The questions asked were mostly related to what I do and what is the requirement there. The final round was on site. I was interviewed by four people. The technical questions were related to HTTP, HTTPS, DDoS, DNS and working of some basic layer 4 protocols.
