    BD Interview

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

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at InMobi in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Extremely tough interviews with a lot of emphasis on numbers, logic and relationship building. Multiple levels of interviews but lot of people it seemed were just there because they were asked to and not because it was relevant to them. Friendly though but not very warm. Takes a long time for the HR to get back

    Human Resources Generalist Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at InMobi.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got an immediate response to set up a phone interview (about two hours after I applied) with their Head of HR. We scheduled the phone interview a few days later. She didn't call me until 25 minutes after the call was scheduled and that was after I had emailed that lady that set up the interview. I couldn't talk, so we scheduled another time to talk. I called her this time. She picked up and then had to put me on hold to go into a conference room. I was on speaker phone which made it hard to hear her.

    She asked the normal questions, but she seemed like she wasn't really paying attention. I would answer and then she would ask me the same thing. When she asked if I had any questions, which I did, she didn't really answer them, or let me finish asking them. I didn't think it went well, but at the end of the call she said she wanted to bring me in.

    We scheduled an on-site interview the following week. I was to meet with four people and they said it would take about 3 hours.

    I ended up declining, based on the reviews of the company and also the lack or organization I had experienced in that short amount of interaction time.

    Anonymous Employee in Bangalore (India)
    Application Details

    The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at InMobi in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online via linked-in. They replied back after a month. First scheduled for telephonic interview which they didn't do. Then I called asking for reason they told me they thought of calling me. So they called me for f2f in same week.
    HR didn't send the address. I had to search and confirm. Then they didn;t tell which floor in building. I had to look at 3 floor of inmobi asking for reception.
    They asked me to come at 1030. they arrived in office late. Interviewer was not informed about interview a day before. So he came late by 1145. I was waiting whole time. HR told me he is stuck in traffic and Interviewer told he didn't know about interview. I was supposed to finish interview and go back to office by 1 but hr mismanaged whole interview and I went back home at 3.
    Company has free culture, lots of funky colored walls, good food etc.
    Very unprofessional.

    Interview Questions
    • 3 rounds:
      1st:
      a: tell me about your self, projects, skills.
      b: dig more in project, What I could have done, what mistakes, what design pattern, etc.
      He was very helpful.
      2nd
      a: find if two string are anagram. He was interested in which lang I used.
      b: find palindrome. Gave first O(n2) solution in Python. He was more interested in semicolon i missed while explanation. Didn't get chance to explain other soln asked me next question.
      c: letter asked to design web-service to serve some kind of service. Implementation required to key value mapping. value was a list. So if particular key is not present you won;t get any list. He was saying in, dict[key].append(num) when key is not valid will give AttributeError instead of KeyError. I too succumbed in it. I didn't know if he was checking me or he didn't know the correctly.
      3rd:
      They keep me waiting for next 2 hrs to tell me, next person is busy today. They will call me later.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore (India)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at InMobi.

    Interview Details

    My profile was a match for two teams and sadly had to take 2*6 rounds of interviews. All the interviews had one thing in common

     How good are you in approaching and solving a problem.
    Coding/Algo and testing skills

    Generally, I've heard that there will be 1 round of telecon and 4 rounds of F2F intervews. For me, I had 2 rounds of telecon (focus was on testing,algorithms and coding) and 10 rounds of F2F, as I was interviewed for 2 different teams. Very tiring, but very friendly panels.

    Software Development Engineer In Test Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Bangalore (India)
    Anonymous Employee in Bangalore (India)
    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at InMobi in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had applied for a position at InMobi through LinkedIn in Jan 2014. HR contacted me the very next day and got my interview scheduled. I had given 2 telephonic rounds. The second telephonic was taken by a very senior guy and asked basic but good questions. After a week, I flew to their main office to give my on-site interviews. My first impression of the office was "Dude, This place looks awesome!!". I went on to give 3 F2F interviews.

    Interview Questions
    • These guys didnt look for usual cracking the code interview or geeksforgeeks. They exactly targeted what they were looking for. They look for problem solving capabilities. They kind of analyze how someone approaches a problem rather than the answer.   Answer Question

    I would still love to join them. I couldnt move to bangalore because of personal reasons

    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Bangalore (India)
    Anonymous Employee in Bangalore (India)
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at InMobi in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the interview through LinkedIn. I got a call from the HR to visit campus for in person interview for the next day. I requested for some time, but the interviewer was supposed to be very busy for next few days and would not be able to take interview if i refused to come at desired time. My interview was scheduled for 10 AM but the interviewer came only by 10.30. He said he got stuck on some call could not come on time. (I found this highly unprofessional). later he asked few generic question:
    -Give a brief introduction?
    - Why do you want to join us?
    - Why do you want to leave your current company? etc.

    During the interview he told many times that they are a start up and believe in working long hours and weekends and this is a routine in InMobi which they are proud of. I answered that by doing so, you are going to burn your employees very soon. to which he answered they don't worry too much about future and he is more worried about what happens now. (again an alarm for me) around 11 AM he said he has to rush for some other meeting and will not be able to give me due time. (again unprofessional)

    Later HR came to me and asked me to wait as she was still co-coordinating with the next interviewer and told me it will happen only by 12 PM (I had to wait for 1 hour). I waited and next interview started around 12.15. Clearly the person who took my interview was not aware of this and was clueless on what questions to ask and started with general questions once again. one more time the stress was on how proud they are about their long working hours and work during weekend.

    Interview Questions
    • Concentration was not on typical questions, but whether the new person is willing to work longer hours.   Answer Question
