    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Brightedge Technologies in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied through the career center website in the university. The first response is within a week.

    1) 48-hour coding assignment: use Java to write a web scraper for a certain URL.

    2) Technical phone interview: routine algorithm questions.

    3) Behavioral phone interview: very common interview questions like why do you choose this company, how to handle conflict in a team.

    4) Onsite interview: 2 technical interviews + a 5.5-hour coding assignment. The technical part is very easy, but the coding assignment is kind-of mission impossible. The assignment is similar to the 48-hour one but much harder. They asked to write a web crawler that works for multiple sites. During the whole day, none of the interviewers were senior engineers or managers. They put people in a mission impossible coding assignment since they don't have a clear idea what they want to test. The whole interview went from 9am to 7:30pm, which was extremely horrible.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Brightedge Technologies in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    1. on campus interview: two technical questions: a) write a function to calculate fibonacci(n). b) given a set of 2-D points, find the maximum number collinear points.
    - a) is straight-forward. I struggled a bit on b), and had it done eventually with several hints.

    2. 48-hour code challenge: write a web crawler to retrieve search results from a given url.
    - The decision was made fast (3 days after submission), although no feedback on the implementation is given.

    3. phone interview (behavioral): In addition to normal questions, such as Why BrightEdge?, emphasis was on how I feel about long working hours. The same question was asked in several different ways.

    4. on-site interview: two tech interview in the morning, about database and some stack/tree related question, not difficult at all. had lunch in company (free friday lunch for all employees, but few engineers show up or mingle with interviewees, which is surprising for a startup). A large programming task was introduced after lunch. The task is similar to the 48-hour challenge: Building general page fetcher and parser to obtain some information from several given web pages. Some java / database connector would help.

    The offer was extended with in a few days after the on-site interview.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 days - interviewed at Brightedge Technologies in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied with a campus recruiter. They responded back the next day and setup initial phone interview in 2 days.

    1. Initial contact (email)
    2. 1st phone interview (coding ~1.5 hr)
    3. 2nd phone interview (talk about your experience and what you want to do ~1hr) and asked my availability for an on-site interview. They told me that they felt a good fit.
    4. After a day, they stop the process abruptly and told me that they found better candidates.

    They do have very bizarre process and cut off the engagement without much explanation. So, don't waste too much time with them.

    Interview Questions
    • Write fibonacci function and print the first n number of it, and write a optimize version using DP. Basically you can cache the results of fibonacci(n) in an array like int[] fibn;

      Asked about the functional programming advantage over iterative. Main idea: functional is pure and can easily be use in multiple core CPU.
