Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mountain View, CA
Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Nimbula in February 2011.

Interview Details

I had three phone interviews.
The first one was non technical.
The next two interviews were one hour technical interviews.
After the last phone interview I was supposed to go to an on site interview but I didn't hear back from them yet. I also didn't ask what's happening since the things at my current job are getting better ;-).

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Nimbula in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Hiring team was fine and very responsive.

    Phone screen was fine too, he asked me 2 questions on data structures and large scale. Questions were good and makes sense to check person's background.

    F2F -
    They should learn little ethics on how to interview people. They lined up very inexperienced interviewers and just because they are boss at the interview they can manipulate anything.
    1st interviewer - It was mug up interviews with good data structures questions, find the relative max value for each number in array. Interviewer wanted the right solution with his own assumptions like using extra space is fine, printing in incorrect order is fine because that's the solution that he knows. He will get impressed by words like memoization, dynamic programming...

    2nd interviewer was good, patient and asking right sort of questions. He asked me about sudoku and spent time to understand my solution. He was happy with the solution.

    3rd interviewer was like what did the 1st interviewer asked, 2nd interviewer? and then I am thinking what to ask you. He was asking random sort of questions do you know this/that. he has asked about consistent hashing which I was not comfortable with and still he kept asking me because he read about it recently and I didn't :)

    After the interviews no one came to me since i had another interview, I had to walk to a person's cube to get the HR.
