    Digital Signal Processing Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at Motorola Mobility in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed in May for a Baseband DSP Engineer position. They were looking for more experience in the fields of digital synthesis hence no offer. The hiring manager was somehow supremely busy on the day I got there and even though he was scheduled to talk with me early in the morning, we got a chance to do that only in the afternoon by which time my taxi had left and he got annoyed because of that.

    The hiring process probably took around a month after the first interview. It was really to the point, I had experience already as a test Engineer and the questions were based in different situations in the SDLC.
