Application

I applied through college or university – interviewed at NVIDIA.

Interview

Campus recruit first, did a quiz about some basic programming questions. And then followed by a phone interview, in which they asked a lot of details about cache, stack, and heap. Also asked some algorithm problems. Most of the problems are not too hard, but they seem to be very strict about your answers.
