The talking was fine , he took my resume and said will contact me later. After a week, he scheduled an Skype video interview through an email with information about the position.

    Interview Questions

    • He sent me an email said that I am considered as an Software Developer. However, he asked me some hardware questions about digit circuit and FPGA, because that I had some hardware experience on my resume. I did not expect that and did not answer well.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at MoSys in May 2014.

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    The process took a dayinterviewed at MoSys in September 2009.

    Interview

    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.
