    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Electric Cloud (Sunnyvale, CA) in March 2010.

    Interview

    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...
