Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
San Francisco, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Lithium Technologies in December 2013.

Interview Details – Extremely positive experience. My recruiter was incredibly prompt, helpful and friendly, and every employee I met shared the same genuineness and enthusiasm for their jobs. I had two semi-technical phone interviews with potential managers and high up employees in engineering. Thereafter, I flew out for a day of technical interviews onsite. Nothing out of the ordinary, but each interviewer seemed to want you to succeed and was very positive and fun to interact with.

Reason for Declining – It was a very hard decision to turn them down, as they offered competitive pay and benefits and the atmosphere was great, but another offer was for one of the tech giants and I chose it for a potentially better start out of college.

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Austin, TX

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at Lithium Technologies.

Interview Details – They reached out to me via a social network. Initial conversation was with the recruiting manager followed by a on-site interview. The latter took over 4 hours and was quite intense but fair. The Austin location was a startup that Lithium recently bought do perhaps their culture is quite different from the bigger company.
