    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at InvenSense (San Jose, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    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.
    Process:
    Was called on site for First round with the hiring manager. This was a basic get-to-know-you round with one technical question on bit manipulation. The rest of the questions were on my resume. He let me know that I will be called for the next round and the recruiter will be in touch with me.
    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.
