I applied online - interviewed at Nexsan Technologies in February 2012.
Interview Details – Went to the company for a programming test. test was fairly simple and time allotted to do it is enough. It is about matching strings from a binary file but without using regex. Also, there are other conditions such as matching case sensitive as well as case insensitive strings.
Time given is 3 hrs and it will be a pice of cake if you know C# because sample code is given in C#. But the test can be done in any language of your choice ragardless.
Interview Question – Cannot use Regular expressions in test Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Nexsan Technologies in November 2012.
Interview Details – Most of the interview process took place at their office where I did a 3 hour test and then (after that was deemed acceptable) a one on one interview with the person I would be working with, which lasted about an hour. Then I met with the product manager and saw the server room--which was pretty neat. Then within a couple days I recieved a phone call from the hiring manager who talked to me about my expectations and other offers, then they made me an offer. Since the offer was made I was taken out to the office again to meet some people who had come to the company more recently. Those talks were very helpful--push for that if you have the chance.
