    Software Developer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Global Relay in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Recruitment agency contacted me about an opening for a Java Developer. I was getting bored with my previous job and so and I agreed to try it out. First interview was a 30-min phone screen with the dev lead. Asked questions about Java, differences between data structures, and my work experience. I thought I botched it as I did not have lots of experience with Java - but I made it. Then they gave me a homework to work on. Nothing too difficult - it just took some time to code. They were happy with it and so they invited me for a second interview. The office was nice and they have free beers and snacks. The interviewers were with a dev lead, a developer, and a scrum master. They asked questions about the homework that I did. Then more Java questions - specifically around multi-threading. Then some programming-related puzzles - but nothing too crazy if you know your computer science fundamentals. Then HR gave me a questionnaire that was meant to get an insight on my personality. The last interview was a behavioral interview with 2 execs. They asked a lot of insightful questions that are meant to judge your character and fit with the company. After a day, HR called me and they were willing to extend me an offer - and I accepted after some negotiation with the salary.

    Interview Details

    Applied via a recruiter, the process started with a initial phone screen for about 30 minutes. During the phone screen, they asked questions are data structures and Java threading.

    Followed the phone screen, I was ask to complete a technical assignment. I was given 24 hours to complete the coding, and I took me around 8 hours to complete it.

    I was then invited to go to an on site interview. During the interview, I was ask to white broad the design of my technical assignment, and discuss the pros and cons of design decisions.

    I was again invited to go back for another interview to meet with another team. While I was there, I was told that the original position was filled, so they wanted to interview me for another position. After meeting with the team, it was followed by an hr interview.

    After that, I was told by the recruiter that they chose someone else with more experience.

    Had two rounds of interviews: phone with Lead and panel with three Team specialists. A lot was about prior experience, some cultural fit, lots of tech questions; also an IQ/math type test and numbers test, no copy to keep offered. Sort of "too advanced" culture as soon as I walked into their lobby.
