Data Warehouse Architect Interview

Data Warehouse Architect
Beverly Hills, CA

The process took 1+ week - interviewed at MySpace in May 2009.

Interview Details – Very formal written exam followed by a panel interview. I was a little surprised that no one seemed interested in my experience but just the answers to the test questions. I also was surprised being asked the same question over and over again as if it was a new question by one of the Director level interviewers. Make me think she had absolutely no idea was she was talking about or hearing.

Also got the what's "Select 5/2" in MySQL question. The answer is 2 because its the result of two integers.

Interview Question – Write the sql for finding the two most populous cities per state in the two tables city and state.   View Answer

Database Developer Interview

Database Developer
Beverly Hills, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at MySpace in October 2008.

Interview Details – I had one phone interview, and one three hour in person interview. This was the most organized technical interview I have ever been on. The architect had three exercises for me to do. A batching exercise, a partition exercise, and something about service broker. The hiring process was fast, so expect a call within a few days after the interview if things went well.

Interview Question – I was not expecting to be asked about horizontal partitioning. They deal with quite a bit of data over there.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Very straightforward. The offer was good, and I took it.

Systems Engineer Interview

Systems Engineer
Beverly Hills, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 days - interviewed at MySpace in May 2010.

Interview Details – There were multiple positions listed that seemed like a good fit, so I started by finding someone on linkedin who held a relevant position, and started a conversation with them.

We talked back and forth about a few different things, and about my background before I submitted my resume and was granted an interview.

Once my resume was submitted, the manager responsible for setting up the interview scheduled a time, and then emailed me to cancel, shortly before the interview was to occur. It took a few days of back and forth emailing to get the interview successfully scheduled when a simple phone call or two would have accomplished the same result much more quickly and easily.

Interview Questions

  • The questions were designed to gauge how one would handle operating in a large distributed server environment, where application and server performance tuning happen on the live production systems.   Answer Question
  • They asked questions about resolving issues within their production environment, e.g. how do you replicate the contents of a filesystem containing 10 or 100s of thousands of small files across the network from a backup, onto a new server, in a managable timeframe?   Answer Question
