Firmware/Software Engineer Interview

Firmware/Software Engineer

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at MoSys in May 2014.

Interview Details – I had applied in the career fair and I got a call within 10 days.

The phone interview lasted more than an hour and was a shared screen coding interview. I was told to write some code for some basic C concepts like pass by value and pass by reference. It was followed some questions on dynamic memory allocation questions. The interviewer was polite and helpful. In the end he asked a few questions on some basics of Python programming but couldn't ask much because of the time constraints.

Unfortunately I got a reject saying that my C skills are good for a new college grad but they require someone who has worked a lot more on C programming than I have. In short they wanted someone who is more experienced.

Interview Question – Create 2-D array using malloc so that we can access them as a[2][3] i.e. like we access a 2D array created in compile time.   View Answer

Engineering Interview

Engineering

The process took a day - interviewed at MoSys in September 2009.

Interview Details – I was able to get my resume to one of the hiring managers. He subsequently contacted me to set up an interview. On the day of the interview, I met with six different people (including the hiring manager) over the course of a long afternoon. All six interviewers asked me technical questions, along with questions about my work history/experience. The technical questions were not overly difficult - I've had to endure much tougher technical interviews. But it wasn't a walk in the park either. I noticed that two of the interviewers asked me the same question about my past experience, which leads me to believe that these guys didn't talk to each other beforehand about how to approach the interviews.

Interview Question – Please describe the regions of operation of the mosfets in a cmos inverter as it toggles between high and low.   Answer Question
