Application: Applied on one of the top job portals. Was contacted withing a week. My first impression was that the recruiters look for good local candidates.

I was called for the next round after 2 weeks.
Second round was 4 interviews. They were all 45 minute interviews with senior level members in the team. Two were mostly coding(C/C++), puzzles and questions on my resume. The other two questioned me on basic theories of physics, MEMS and a bit of coding.
