Staff Firmware Engineer Interview

Staff Firmware Engineer

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Broadcom.

Interview Details – Submitted resume online and got a call from a hiring manager. He asked some basic background questions and we scheduled a technical phone interview. The phone interview had questions about my resume and basic C programming. Then they sent me some programming questions and asked me to write the code and sent back for evaluation.

Interview Question – Some about basic C language like static variable, function call etc. Also some quick programming question like Fibonacci sequence.   Answer Question
