Systems Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

The process took a day - interviewed at RethinkDB in January 2011.

Interview Details – I had interview with the founder Slava. I didn't get a good vibe from him even from the start of the interview. Maybe he interviewed a lot of people already and don't have any more patient for the interview process. I could sense that he felt I was there just to waste his time.

Except questions about B-tree, binary search tree (know the difference between B-tree and BST), link list (insert, delete, reserves), big-O notation time complexity, time complexities of basic sorting algorithm (insert sort, BT sort, bubble sort...), string manipulation. If you a recent graduate as I am and listed knowledge is still fresh in your mind , you will do fine. The interview felt most like school exam.

Throughout the interview process, he acted like a dictator not willing to listen.
