Software Developer Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
The process took a day - interviewed at Big Huge Games in February 2011.
Interview Details – First a non-technical phone screen with a hiring manager, then a 4 hour programming test, which was easily the most real-world-esque and challenging code test I've taken. The onsite interview process was fairly grueling: about 6 panel interviews and skill tests, including whiteboard coding and computer coding. Two of the panels were with artists and designers, rather than fellow developers.
I was greatly impressed by the work environment and the people I spoke with. This is clearly a business that cares about its employees, and goes to great lengths to keep them happy and productive. The company culture seems to be one of cooperation and shared creativity.
Interview Question – Describe, in full detail, how CPU caches are organized, including the details of various current processor architectures. Answer Question
