    Had to complete a 90 minute online coding test for screening, followed by an onsite interview which lasted 60 minutes.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at DemonWare (Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)).

    Interview

    Several phone interviews: initial screening with technical recruiter followed by phone calls with managers. The questions were very general, such as what is the most challenging thing I have ever accomplished, or where I see myself in five years time.

    On-site technical interview with managers and other engineers.

    The recruiter called me several times to explain at which stage I was at, however the whole hiring process was a bit messy (possibly due to the fact that many people are getting interviewed/hired at the same time).

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate the starting date and the relocation package. However I could not negotiate the salary.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at DemonWare (Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)) in December 2012.

    Interview

    The process had 3 main stages: phone-basics + background check (+salary question), second was another call with one of their engineers (still basic but more technical), last one is a 1:1 about two hours with a break. First part checks your pure knowledge and the second is rather problem solving/experience related.

    Interview Questions

    • I wasn't really ready to provide a linked-list implementation in python (Be ready to answer what are they good for and how compare to lists ... etc.).
      Second question that got me was some sort of python golf with - "what will the output be" question. It was involving zip-ing iterators only problems was that iterators got created using "*" multiplication operator so de-facto it was one-same iterator.

      Both ware nothing extremely tricky - I was not really ready.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at DemonWare (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in February 2012.

    Interview

    I was interviewing for an internship and the process was quite simple. The one-on-one interview consisted of some questions on C++ (object oriented features, memory allocation and leaks), SQL (primary keys, injection) and networking (general protocol knowledge). There was a very simple coding question at the end. It pays to know some Python too, but being good at any two of these things is a good idea.
