    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Mirantis.

    Interview Details

    I had already been working under contract and was told by my handler that management wanted to talk with me about coming on full-time. Since I was working remotely, we arranged to have the interview over Skype. I first spoke with the director of Marketing and then someone from Development. It was easy going and uncomplicated.

    Interview Questions
    • Interestingly enough, there were no difficult or unexpected questions. Since I had been working under contract for a few weeks, the interview was something of a formality. They did talk about company structure and their expectations of me that were beyond the scope of my contract work, though.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Mirantis in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had an initial 30-minute phone interview with a recruiter. The recruiter provided a brief overview of the role. She then asked me to describe skills in previous roles that were relevant to the position. I believe that our conversation went well, since I was scheduled for a second phone interview with the VP of Marketing.

    The second phone interview was 45 minutes in duration. The first 15 minutes were focused on the description of the role and the duties. For the following 20 minutes I was asked to describe my skills and background. There were a few questions asked during this time, pertaining to my experience. The last 10 minutes were utilized for further questions I had about the position.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Mirantis.

    Interview Details

    Interview took place at Moscow office. I talked with HR, she told me about the job and bonuses, after that I was interview by 2 reviewers. They also told about the job and some information about the company, after that they started to ask questions.

    One question was about algorithms and structures, there was also a discussion question like: "imagine a network of computers with one server, there is a huge array and you must organize the following calculations..." The last question was really close to what they do. The interviewers and HR were really nice, I really liked their office.

    The thing is, that I needed a web-development job, but it turned out that they needed a system programmer - one, who knows a lot about memory, threads, etc.
