    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at MathWorks in June 2015.

    Interview

    Brief HR interview scheduled by recruiter followed by a technical round. It is quite obvious that the person conducting the technical round is not aware or conversant of topics pertaining to what you prefer. Just could not understand the interviewer's accent at times. The person just clicks through a set of questions to ask and most of the questions are repeated from what I've seen in the forum here. May be the right kind of company for people who prefer breadth of knowledge and giving textbook answers rather than depth of what you understand.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic questions about C++, OOP, Calculus, Linear algebra, etc.   Answer Question
