    Interview Questions

    • They have 3 divisions inside Rainbow team. DSP, Optics and Programming. most of the homework pertain to the dsp division so don't worry you might still have a chance. I thought I did well but maybe they didn't like my character. Their management is so unorganized!!!   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Masimo in July 2014.

    Interview

    Had a great phone interview with VP of Engineering. Was asked to come in for a half day interview the following week. What a horrible experience! The interviewers were arrogant and didn't even understand their own questions they were asking. I've never had a more horrible experience during the process.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were all over the place and never really were on topic relating to the job description. I had to ask several times to rephrase the question. Not sure if they were really prepared for the interview.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Masimo.

    Interview

    The person who interviews you will probably have less knowledge about medical devices than the interviewee. Arrive early because parking is very packed or at least schedule your interview right before lunch time because a lot of employees leave early for lunch and you can get a good parking space.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The negotiation phase went through a recruiter and it was not a lot of back and forth. I was happy with the pay.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Masimo (Irvine, CA).

    Interview

    Contacted by HR three months after applying via LinkedIn. Scheduled phone interview with manager. 1st phone screen: current project description. 2nd phone screen: Questions in mathematical optimization (how to minimize volume of ellipsoid, why is determinant a measure of volume of ellipsoid, etc). Next, two problems were sent to me to be solved in a week (one was a C programming problem- multipling two vectors- and the other an OFDM problem). One more phone screen with senior scientist- asked questions from resume, AdaBoost, etc. Finally, on-site interview: Started at 9 am, was asked to give an hour long presentation of two projects. Nine interviews throughout the day. All questions based on presentation, a lot of emphasis on linear algebra, optimization, adaptive filters and some Java. Very thorough interview process.

    Interview Questions

    • In my third phone screen I was asked to describe AdaBoost in detail. I had done the project about eight months ago, and had forgotten the details and panicked. Takeaway? Know your resume thoroughly!   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    It was my first job, so I didn't negotiate. I was very happy with what they gave me.
