    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Kony in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    I've heard different accounts of the interview process. Some taking many, many interview steps with multiple personnel others very few. I do know that once they know you are the right candidate they move very fast to get you on board. Questions will vary widely but will be focused on your indicated skill sets to determine if you really know your stuff. Expect to do a demo of something you are comfortable with or a skills test.

    Interview Questions
    • No off the wall questions. They are focused to your cited strengths to determine if you are legit.   Answer Question

    Inside Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Application Details

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Kony in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    The entire process was over a period of several weeks. Two initial screening calls with a recruiting company, then a phone screen with hiring manager, then an onsite interview with VP of Sales and several other Inside Reps. There were no questions that were out of the ordinary for a sales interview. Their hiring preference seemed to focus on prior inside sales success. This is a typical high-growth tech company, inside software sales position. Lots of hours, but excellent pay and bonus potential.

    Software Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hyderābād (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Kony in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The Hiring process starts with a written test conducted by mettl.com

    The test is relatively simple and it has 3 sections :

    First section consists of Quantative aptitude , Logical and Verbal Aptitude (15) questions :15 minutes.

    Second section consists of MCQ's on your technical subjects like data structures, C, OS, Algorithms , DBMS etc : Simple yet tricky (15 questions ) :15 minutes .

    Third section consists of a coding problem which has an online compiler and a time of 30 minutes is given and it is for 10 marks .

    Suppose a string is given like "Banana is yellow in color and it is tasty"
    for suppose you give an input character like "a" it should return the largest distance between the first "a" and last "a" like it should return 27 and it should not consider white spaces .

    Then they evaluate your score and there are certain sectional cutoff's and you will be qualified for next round .

    The next round is a GROUP DISCUSSION on "Women Empowerment and its influence on social development" and also other team has "Women reservations " as the topics. We had these these topics because they want to recruit only ladies and boys were not allowed during this campus interview.

    The next round is a technical HR and it was very delightful to meet the VP and he is the most spirited soul and my encounter with him played a major role in getting role as he is very pleasant and kind .

    He asked me to write a pseudo code for the above problem or he wanted me to explain any data structure algorithm (I explained the Single linked list ) . Then he asked me about the use of databases and some quite interesting questions on why do I like IT career and some real time scenarios . It is extremely delightful speaking to him.

    Then a psychometric test . It's very simple :)

    Lastly a HR round in which you would be asked about "tell me about yourself" ,hobbies , activities , project ,why Kony . Be very careful and patient , confident and honest . Research about your resume well and be prepared about every part .

    Then Got a notification from them about getting selected .

    Interview Questions
    • They asked about why are you into CSE and tell me 3 reasons why should I open a fb account ?

      Besides that everything was relatively very pleasant .

    I applied online – interviewed at Kony in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Seems the interviewer has a set of question on his laptop and started shooting them one by one.

    When I explained the runtime (sounds for him, "ohh does Obj-C supports runtime too!") he got totally confused. I'm an hacker and always play the stuff with my jailbreak device. When he asked "How can we declare a method as private?" I explain that "you can't, since the dynamic nature of the Obj-C." And I explained how the "messages" passed to the objects at the run time. Finally he got confused and he is really looking for the answer "through extensions." (of course I told him at last by seeing his confusion face). Come on, from 10+ years of experienced guy you can't expect such a silly answer.
