    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Cloudmark in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    1. One hour phone interview with web team manager.
    2. Four hours of In-person set of 1:1 interviews with web, database engineers and head of engineering department.
    3. Second in person interview cancelled.
    4. Job offer in a few days.
    5. Started under two weeks later.

    Very professionally handled interview process. They were more interested in how I went about solving technical problems, than in my arriving at the correct (or any) solution in every case.

    Be prepared to be interviewed by people not directly related to your job, they will test your extremes.

    QA Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Cloudmark in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Pretty simple, you get a phone interview and they ask you some general screening questions. Just to make sure you're not lying on your resume I suppose. Mostly easy programming and Quality concepts.

    In-person interview has some review of your resume, some real world problems. That kind of thing. Just watch out and be sure to never say a negative thing, ever. No matter how much you get led on. I was dropped for being "Too negative" when the interviewers constantly led me to negative answers. Asked a negative question? Just glaze over it is my best guess. It's not too morale but I guess it's what you gotta do.
