Senior Software Engineer Interview

Senior Software Engineer

Interviewed at Expedia

Interview Details – Initial phone interview included online collaborative testing. Testing included programming problems mainly based on hashmaps, arrays and looping. The interviewer was friendly and considerate although I do not think they were actually a software engineer. The collaborative interview lasted 45 to 60 minutes. There was very little discussion on what the job included.

Interview Question – How else could you populate the hashmap?   Answer Question
