I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at Black Duck Software in January 2014.

Interview Details – The hiring manager looked for referrals and asked for interested parties to call. While initially, he took a moment to hear how I may be qualified he abruptly stopped the dialogue, not based on skills or qualifications, but rather based on the size of previous companies worked for. Rather than being able to relate experience, he stated he did not want to waste my time or his because he knew that a candidate needed to work in his size company to be successful. While I can respect someone for knowing what they want, the abrupt nature of the hiring manager and shortsightedness was rather unprofessional.

Interview Question – It was difficult not being able to relate one's experience to the current needs to the company because of the hiring managers interview preference.   Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Black Duck Software in January 2012.

Interview Details – Don't waste your time if you have a job, unless you can remember everything from your college algorithm 101 days and can code the algorithm in 30 minutes. Apparently 10+ years of working experience really didn't matter if one can not come up and program Boyer-Moore majority voting algorithm in 30 minutes.

Interview Question – Find majority number in an array of integers   Answer Question
