Software Development Engineer II Interview

Software Development Engineer II
Bangalore (India)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Flipkart.com in May 2014.

Interview Details – It took the regular route of DS and Algo - First was a machine coding round that was pretty simple to code - basically needed the right design principles. Second interview was into DS / Algo and the third was by two people, this was more on design and finally another one by a Manager

Interview Question – I did not find any difficult questions (maybe it was my luck or I'd prepared well)   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Was pretty funny actually - FK offered me more than what I was expecting, more than another counter offer I was holding at the same time from another e-commerce giant (whose details I did not disclose to FK). So well, all my negotiation tactics went down the drain, but in the good sense.

Software Development Engineer I Interview

Software Development Engineer I

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Flipkart.com.

Interview Details – Consisted of 3 interviews and two coding round.
Round 1:
Question 1: Write a program to find the maximum difference between two elements of an array such that the greater number always has the greater index.
Question 2: For two strings A and B, we define the similarity of the strings to be the length of the longest prefix common to both strings. For example, the similarity of strings "abc" and "abd" is 2, while the similarity of strings "aaa" and "aaab" is 3.

Calculate the sum of similarities of a string S with each of it's suffixes.

Sample Input:

2
ababaa
aa
Sample Output:

11
3
Explanation:
For the first case, the suffixes of the string are "ababaa", "babaa", "abaa", "baa", "aa" and "a". The similarities of these strings with the string "ababaa" are 6,0,3,0,1, & 1 respectively. Thus, the answer is 6 + 0 + 3 + 0 + 1 + 1 = 11.

For the second case, the answer is 2 + 1 = 3.

Round 2:
Question: Create a simple json formatted Data without using any json Libraries

Also there was a difference in the basic job description provided initially and what the HR lady had at hand.
