    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Oracle in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview process consisted of a phone screen for 40 minutes with the hiring manager. Mostly making sure that I'm a good fit with the group and reviewing my technical projects over the last few positions. The next portion was a day long interview with the team. I had tough technical questions, ranging from system level (how does TCP/IP work), to high level software questions (How do you resolve picking which algorithm is suitable for a certain problem). Overall very challenging and through.
