Senior Design Engineer Interview

Senior Design Engineer

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at RFMD.

Interview Details – I had 2 short phone interviews. Questions were mostly on PA biasing, matching and comparing different classes of PAs. The onsite interview was about 3.5 hours with 6 people. The first interview was with the hiring design manager and it lasted a little over an hour and was almost all technical. There more questions about PA's and a few on the smith chart. The other 5 were not very technical and were mostly generic HR type questions such as describe your strengths/weakness, why are looking for a job, etc.

Interview Question – The questions were all fairly straight forward. They didn't ask anything to trick me. Of the companies I have interviewed with this was the easiest one.   Answer Question
