    It took 3 weeks for the process. The HR emailed me for dates and I was told that there would be a technical phone interview on data structures, algorithms. I had two back-to-back one hour technical phone interviews. I was asked to write code for one question and submit it later. I was asked questions on hash map, heaps, computer architecture etc.

    Staff II IC Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    People ask the most fundamental part of circuit design to the interviewee. They do not deal with the most cutting edge technology but they intend to know if you are willing to learn a new perspective on this field. Generally the interview takes more than 6 hours including lunch, but not too much tough.

    Interview Questions
    • There was no such difficult trick in every question. Just not to try to answer if you do not know the exact answer.   Answer Question
