    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Imagination Technologies.

    Interview Details

    An online test in C++ programming followed by an on-site interview with the team leader. The test was generic questions about the language to see if you made the effort to do some pre-study reading (a lot of the specifics are rarely used in my opinion so testing how much effort you are prepared to put into the job). The interview was quite informal asking quite difficult problem solving questions.

    Interview Details

    4 rounds includng HR round. 3 rounds are technical, mainly focussing on OS concepts and algorithms. The interviewers expect detailed algorithms with efficient implementation. The interview mainly intends to understand your way of thinking and core C concepts. I would recommend preparing C using books like K&R. The concepts like basic data structures also need preparing.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kings Langley, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Imagination Technologies in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    At first I had to complete an online test. The questions weren't difficult and everyone in the hardware field should know them. After that test (after some days) I had a telephone interview with the senior engineer of the team. The interview also wasn't difficult and most of the questions were identical with the ones of online test. After that they informed be to go to their company for face2face interview. There they were also friendly and I think it wasn't that difficult too (There is the probability I didn't get to the hard part too)

    Interview Questions
    • At first they asked implementing some sort of function with hardware. After that do it with less hardware. After that design on board a state machine recognising some specific series of 0s and 1s.
      Finally implementing multiplication of 8 bit numbers with 4 bit multipliers + whatever I needed.
      Also they asked about read after write problems to processors and things on computer architecture.
      Also they asked me things on my Thesis.

    They contacted me through e-mail to arrange a short interview on the phone. Typical questions regarding my interest in the position and a short review of my related experience.

    • Nothing, most of the questions were about hardware design and wireless communication technologies.   Answer Question
