Application

I interviewed at MAQ Software (Redmond, WA) in April 2014.

I applied for the position on my University's job website. A recruiter called me a few days later and we had an introductory phone conversation, and then a couple weeks later I went in for a technical interview. At the technical interview I talked to a Software Engineer who asked me technical questions, and then I talked to the recruiter who I talked to on the phone about behavioral questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at MAQ Software in September 2014.

    Interview

    Written round - mcqs(apt + tech) and then a coding problem on strings which was easy. 1st tech round - WAP to add two numbers without using any arithmetic operators. Solution - implement full adder Next question was confusing don't know what exactly he was expecting as an answer Write a recursive function to calculate the factorial of a number and the function should not break due to any reason.He said if i were to give the function in hands of a 5 year old he should not be able to break the code. Solution - I started by taking all the boundary cases such as invalid input,stack overflow,factorial bigger than 32 bits,etc but he wanted more.Told me this is how they test the robustness of our code. I was not shortlisted for the second round but they didn't select anyone from Btech anyways.
