    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at NVIDIA in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Found the opening on line. Sent my resume to the company and got response a while later from a manager. The manager did a phone interview. He came up with technical issues. Remember the way the manager spoke was not the most friendly. Phone interview was the furthest I got. The position was for a Windows graphics driver developer.

    • Questions were difficult, but reasonable. Ultimately, I wasn't prepared for the level of expertise they expected (although I thought I was). Asked detailed questions about CPU/GPU architecture. Also, questions involving Amdahl's Law.   Answer Question
