Interview Details – A HR from MathWorks called without a pre-email or something and asked the basic things about my background and asked a question like how do you handle conflict with your colleague and then she'll schedule a phone interview for you and send you a confirmation email which also contains the basic questions type.

Interview Question – Given a sequence, judged whether it is stable or not. A little nervous when calculating so didn't get the answer.   Answer Question

Engineering Interview

The process took a day - interviewed at MathWorks in October 2009.

Interview Details – I received an email for a Mathworks virtual career fair in February. After applying for the the career fair and finding out it was full, I sent my resume to the company through their website to see if I could get an interview that way. At the beginning of April, I received a phone call from a Mathworks employee expressing interest in scheduling a phone interview. He asked a few basic questions about my resume, if i was still seeking employment, and what group I was interested in interviewing with at Mathworks. He was basically feeling me out to see if he should extend an interview offer to me. So far, that is as far as I have made it in the interview process. I have the phone interview scheduled in a couple days and should update my post then. The phone interview, as stated by the employee, is going to be technical questions covering basic math, MATLAB, programming concepts, and one programming language. Also, I had to choose which overall topic or group I wanted to interview with. The choices were controls, computer science, and signal processing. The interview is supposed to last between 40-60 minutes.

The process took 1 week - interviewed at MathWorks in October 2008.

Interview Details – I really enjoyed my interview at the Mathworks. The people seems really smart and motivated. I think they have a hard time hiring senior technical people from other companies. The culture is very much to join right after college and grow with the company. Since it's privately held, the culture is a bit insular.

Interview Question – How would you balance travel and getting things done in the office?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – The position offered me was a bit too junior.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at MathWorks in March 2007.

Interview Details – Fascinating software development environment. Extremely focused on technical accomplishments that directly boost software sales. Interview process was polite, but unclear on job details, expectations (70-80 hrs a week was mentioned for top performers), performance evaluation criteria, etc. Very much a "let us hire you and then we'll figure out what you'll be doing" situation. Expected salary was requested during on site interview - recommendation is to go high.

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at MathWorks in November 2011.

Interview Details – The initial communication with the Mathworks representative was basically a discussion on company overview ,resume discussion,description about the position and some basic HR questions. After that the schedule for telephonic interview was setup. The telephonic interview was about 35-40 minutes based on the specialization. They didn't get back after the telephonic interview and my application status was updated in their online job portal.
