    Lead Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Glu in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone chat with in-house recruiter, phone call with TD, coffee-shop meeting with TD and GM, all-day on-site interview with multiple small groups (mostly two people) and one larger group of higher-ups at the end of the day. My second group took me out to brunch. The other small groups were done in a conference room with a white board and we did various activities that felt a lot like working-together. I think this helped them (and me) get a feel for what it would be like to work together. Interview process also included a full tour of the studio, which was nice. I had lots of chances to ask my own questions and get an idea and feel for the culture (which is awesome, by the way). I was there for over 7 hours but I left feeling energized as opposed to drained. I received a phone call with an offer the next day. The entire process was handled professionally and relatively quickly.

    Interview Questions
    • 8 words were written on the white board and I was asked to rank them in order of importance and then explain why/how I ranked them.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Glu in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process consisted of 2 phone calls (HR and Technical) and an on-site interview with several members of the team, one at a time.

    All of the interviewers were friendly and asked reasonable questions. At no point did I feel any of the interviewers were asking questions to show off.

    Associate Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Glu.

    Interview Details

    I had one screening phone interview with the HR recruiter to cover the basics, followed by a phone interview with the direct supervisor for the role that covered more of my professional background, knowledge of mobile and f2p games, and then I had a 5 hour in person interview.

    The in person interview involved a case study presentation in front of a panel of product managers and producers, followed by several 45 minute to hour long 1 on 1 interviews with people who participated in the panel.

    The case study required a lot of preparation prior to the interview itself. You're expected to do a high level tear down of a mobile title and generate several of your own ideas to improve the title.

    During the panel presentation, you'll be expected to explain and defend your interpretation of the mobile title's strengths and weaknesses, along with rough estimates for the performance of its different features.

    The one on ones are fairly standard for most interviews. I was applying for a live events / live operation role, so most of the questions were focused on different feature events I could come up with for different Glu games, while forcing me to adjust my recommendations based on new information, etc.

    Interview Questions
    • No one single question was that difficult, but the whole process requires a good understanding of f2p monetization. The case study will require several hours of preparation. You will be questioned on a lot of your assumptions and assertions, and be expected to defend them.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I asked for what I believed was reasonable given my level of experience, and I received it.
