Senior Marketing Manager Interview

Senior Marketing Manager

Interviewed at Electric Cloud

Interview Details – Started off by answering a job ad, then 2 Phone calls, in person interview with team members. The HR staff and recruiter seemed a little disconnected in communications. The marketing staff has been revamped in the last year. Apparently the new staff is very aligned in their religious views and is looking to continue along the same path with new hires.

Interview Question – First question of one interviewer: "Could you confirm you are Jewish? [The Team Leader] and I are Jewish and we noticed your last name, and we would be so happy if you could confirm you're Jewish... ?"   View Answer

Sales Engineer Interview

Sales Engineer
Atlanta, GA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Electric Cloud in May 2011.

Interview Details – The entire process was very quick and nearly transparent. The recruiter and manager asked me key questions, gave me a chance to sell my skills and shared their needs.

Interview Question – The manager questioned my career move; felt I was actually downgrading jobs. One of the best pieces of advice I've received   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – The manager's implication that I should look for a better opportunity was accurate.

Presales Engineer Interview

Presales Engineer
Sunnyvale, CA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Electric Cloud in September 2010.

Interview Details – First two phone screens with a manager from the technical sales team. Vetted my customer facing background and some technical. Second phone screen with an engineer was fairly technical. In person interviews were 45min each with a manager of support, an engineer, a sales engineer, and HR. They are looking for a fairly deep set of development experience plus customer facing experience

Support Engineer Interview

Support Engineer
Sunnyvale, CA

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Electric Cloud in March 2010.

Interview Details – I am a Tools, SCM, Build/Release Engineer with strong GNU Make experience. They wanted a technical support engineer for their GNU Make based build product. I have done a lot to internal customers but they wanted someone with external customer support experience. The interview consisted of two parts on different days. First was a skills test. It ranged from simple UNIX and Make questions to difficult ones. I did quite well. The next part was a series of 1:1 interviews. It ranged from a peer to the position to the CEO. The interview was much more relaxed than the test. They were impressed by my skills but still decided I didn't have enough experience in customer support for a good fit. Not really sure where they are going to find such a person...

Interview Question – In GNU Make what is the difference between the following rules:
x.o y.o:
  echo $@

x.% y.%:
  echo $@
