    Data Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Inflection in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    The a long process where you get to meet with a few different people. The architects are picky, they will give you questions they are trying to solve for years and expect you to solve it right there. They want to walk away feel that they had learned something. They don't care about your background or what your past experience had like. The data system is stuck with using SQL server in the old days. The technology challenge is there because they do not have the right infrasturcture and technlogy. Yet, they still want to find that relational guru who can help them out. It's a very strange interviewing style too. I think i talked to 5 people and 1 person didn't like you. You are out.

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Inflection in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    I met them at a career fair. There was a follow up interview by the end of which I had pretty much been offered the job. I had another phone interview with the CEO after to understand the company better and the role I might play. Overall at that time the interview was more about things I had worked on in the past and proving that I was smart, rather than testing specific knowledge.
