Application Details

I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at Infinera in March 2010.

Interview Details

I was first contacted and phone interviewed by HR. After that, I was phone interviewed by my potential manager, which was more "technical" in nature. A week later, I was invited for an on-site interview, which involved giving a 45-minute technical presentation, followed by 10 one-on-one interviews throughout the day. Be prepared for technical questions and "why do you want to work for Infinera" type questions. The people were very friendly, bright and motivated. I was offered the job within a couple of days and am happy that I accepted. The work is both interesting and challenging, and the team is highly dedicated. The company is also green- and health-conscious, providing reusable resources and an on-site gym. All and all, a great place to work.

Negotiation Details
Consider the entire package. Infinera typically offers a generous relocation package (if applicable), competitive salary and restricted stock units that vest over 4 years, all of which are negotiable. The benefits package is good, but the company currently does not contribute to 401k. Also, vacation time is capped at 4 weeks.
