Very Difficult Interview
Senior Software Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Very Difficult Interview)
The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Carefx in August 2011.
Interview Details – The interview process started with an initial phone interview with a senior manager. After that, there was a second phone interview which was entirely technical and pretty grueling. The third (and last) interview was an on-site interview that lasted about 5 hours. I interviewed with 5 different people during that time, some of the interviewers asked technical questions, some mostly just engaged in conversation to determine the quality of the fit between me and the organization.
After the interview process ended, an offer was extended within 5 days. At that point drug screening and a background check were done.
Interview Question – Don't remember any specific questions, but the technical questions were pretty hard and ran the gamut from design patterns (and examples of use) to class loaders. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There was some room for negotiation on salary, but I was coming into the organization with a lot of experience and revelant skills.
