    2 phone interviews. 1 with the hiring manager and 1 with a software developer. Phone interview consisted of a number of questions to check my breath of knowledge. This was anything from OOPs concepts, data structures, databases, etc. Then i was called onsite where i was interviewed by 4 people.. There was a code review round, coding questions etc. Finally met with the hiring manager again. I heard back from them a week later with a coding exercise. Hear back from them a week later with an offer. Negotiated a bit and accepted the offer.
