    Interview Details

    Two to three rounds of telephone interviews, followed by full day in-person interview in the Dublin office. Technically very tough questions in all areas, designed to see how well-rounded the candidate is and which areas he/she is strong in. Very mentally tiring after several rounds of these!

    Interview Questions
    • Tricky algorithm problems and puzzles that you must solve on the spot, in front of the whiteboard and explain the solution.   View Answer
