Senior Support Engineer Interview

Senior Support Engineer

I applied online and the process took 9 months - interviewed at Apigee in April 2014.

Interview Details – Received an arrogant email through LinkedIn 'Opportunity knocks only once, apply now ...'
Turned me off and ignored it. 6 months later found position was still unfilled so I applied.
Within days I received a professional email and setup a phone screen.
Unfortunately, the hiring manager was yelling at me and the phone line had a lot of static forcing
the interview to be rescheduled. At the rescheduled interview, the hiring manager was absent and needless to say the recruiter was only filling time.

Interview Question – Why did you startup your own company and not look for a new job after your layoff?   View Answer

Senior Engineer Interview

Senior Engineer
Pleasanton, CA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Apigee.

Interview Details – Applied on their website. Spoken to the recruiting coordinator over the phone. Had a conversation with the hiring Manager. Then was asked to come onsite for a 1:1 interview.

Technical Evangelist Interview

Technical Evangelist

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Apigee.

Interview Details – Had a phone interview with recruiter and was set up for an additional phone interview with the Department Head. The second interview was canceled because he required more hands-on coding. The initial phone interview was "okay" ... she seemed to go over my qualifications quite a bit and ask multiple variations of the same question as though she was suspicious. My impression of Apigee is that the organization is very textbook and if you're not the standard ivy league graduate, they won't consider you. I feel their competitors will outpace them due to this conservative approach - personal belief that the future of technology will be determined by the diversity of your team. Twitter is a perfect example. Founders from MidWest; some with no degree.

Interview Question – What does apigee do? What is an API? (These weren't difficult or unexpected though)   Answer Question
