    Software Product Developer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Magnasoft in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    Evidently Magnasoft has a product called Northstar for which they are ramping up the team. I was approached by a consultant, who gave me the JD - strong core Java skills, Hibernate or iBatis, Struts or Spring, Apache Tomcat, Linux.. the usual, but with a twist - that the core Java requirement was very strong. Apparently they're developing state-of-the-art algorithms using Java and need people who are Java cats.

    The first round was on the telephone, and seemed to be with an HR person who asked me very basic, general questions - current company, role, responsibility, why I wanted to leave, salary, team sizes, ambition, etc. Run of the mill stuff that I breezed through. I was scheduled for another call the next day, and was told that it would be a technical call.

    The next day, another person called, again seemed to be from HR (?), but this time it was very technical. I was put through a Java test with true/false answers, all on the phone. The questions were very tough! What I had heard about Magnasoft hiring the strongest Java devs was true - questions were on memory management, reflection, I/O, logging, exception handling, properties and collections - I think that was it. 25 questions, each one pretty tough and I needed to think through every one. The interviewer was very patient, and didn't mind repeating the questions. The questions took about 40 minutes, and at the end, he told me that I had scored just 16 on 25! I was flabbergasted, but he said that it was ok - normal, and that I needed to come in for a set of f2f rounds.

    The next day, I went in, and there were more tests! One tough Java technical test, multiple choice, 80 questions in 60 minutes, in which they covered almost all of core Java, with a focus on performance, speed, memory management, algorithms and data structures. After that, there was a programming test scheduled, which I'd have to take if I cleared the written test.

    Unfortunately, I didn't clear the written test, and the interviewer sat with me to explain some portions of where I'd gone wrong, which was nice of him. When I asked if I could come back later, after I improved, he was very nice about it and agreed.

    Overall, it was a learning experience, but it looks like their Northstar group is filled with Java cats.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore (India)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Magnasoft in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Very lengthy recruitment process with multiple levels of interviews. No mention of any specific points regarding the company like long working hours and the methods of operation. The hiring process also included F2F interviews, presentations on work process and written tests. The negotiation is really hard and it gets down to wires. Variable components are not that impressive as well as the pay structure.

    Interview Questions
    • Sometimes questions were asked that were not relevant to my profile and the job requirement.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was a lot of negotiation and tried to match the required expectation however with a increased variable component in the salary
