Palo Alto, CA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Palantir Technologies.

Interview Details – Initial phone screen where general questions about my background were asked, was invited to an onsite interview and met with multiple people throughout the day. they all essentially asked the same things "tell us about your background" "what's the largest event you have planned" etc., Difficult in that there are no breaks and its a full day of interviews spent repeating the same thing, by the end of the day its easy to have a well-rehearsed spiel down. One interview is over lunch/a tour of the grounds

Interview Question – none are that difficult, it's more about not being phased by the standoffish/rude attitudes of some of the employees who interview you   Answer Question

Interview Details – the phone interview consisted of variations of the subset sum problem. they began with asking for identifying 2 numbers summing to zero in an array of integers, then 3 numbers summing to zero, then generalizing it to k. they also asked about the runtimes of the algorithms to these problems

Interview Question – design an algorithm for this problem: given inputs: int[] arr, int k, and int n, find all n-tuples in arr that sum to k.   Answer Question
