I applied through college or university - interviewed at Dotomi in December 2013.
Interview Details –
First interview in Nov 2013 consisted of talking to a software engineer on my campus asking mostly work related questions made up by HR such as
- What was the most difficult thing you've done recently and what was your course of action?
- Tell me about a time you had multiple projects due and how you organized working on them
Got emailed with an initial 2nd interview offer, I accepted, a recruiter called a few days later asking me which day I preferred my interview on, very nice person. Went to the interview, they have casual dress but all candidates wore a suit. There were suppose to be 6 candidates but 1 didn't show. We were gathered in a conference room and did a little ice breaker in the beginning 5 candidates and 2 employees. Then the main interview started which consisted of 3 interviews with Sr. Software developers in a row, 30 mins each.
All 3 interviews had a sheet of questions they had to ask but phrased them in different ways, basically the same questions along with a few technical questions such as.
-Whats the difference between pass by reference and pass by value?
-If you had an array of integers how could you find the largest sum of 3 integers in a row?
-(After explained verbally how it would work)How efficient is this?Improve on its design
-Code a method that takes in a string and determines if it contains an integer.
-Can you add to a string?
-How can you add to a string?
-Code a method that takes in a string and returns true if the string contains anything
--Make it check if the string is null
-Mostly asked about school work
In all great experience, learned a lot, met very smart people who explained a few things I couldn't quite get a handle on. I felt I could have done better with the first interviewer but if you don't understand a tech question they explain it, try to work you through it by providing hints, and don't put you on the spot. According to recruiter will hear back in 1 week.
Interview Question – Definitely the verbally explaining how I would find the largest sum of 3 integers in a row in an array. I'm more of a visual worker so if I can at least write code down it will go much faster. View Answer

Interview Details – The recruiter was extremely helpful, professional and friendly throughout the entire process. She made sure I was completely clear on what to expect, who I would be talking to, and when things would happen.

The focus was as much on how I viewed things as what I knew.

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Dotomi in April 2013.
Interview Details – There were two face to face interviews. One was held at my school. This interview was about 30 minutes, the interviewer asked the basic interview question about my background. I was asked back for the next round of interviews. This interview was held at the headquarters. The whole process was about 3 hours interviewing with three different people 30 minutes each. In the beginning there was a short speaker and ice breaker with current employees. The questions were very typical of other interviews with the exception of one interviewer. Who began grilling me about my resume and asking me technical questions that I did not know the answer to immediately. If I did not answer his question to his liking he would make me feel stupid and incredibly nervous. I could tell he was doing this because he enjoyed watching people squirm. I asked another candidate if that he had the same experience and he confirmed my suspicion.

No one was to be called out on something they never said.
