    Technical Project Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Silver Spring Networks Inc. in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone screening with recruiter, then 1 hr phone interview with hiring manager. Then two sessions of 2 hours each over Skype, speaking with 8 people in total (1/2hr each), from network engineers to the VP. Some nicer than others. There was just a technical guy really anoying, shooting tough technical questions that he had on a piece of paper, the rest of the team was cool. A couple of them seemed really stressed.. At one point the hiring manager sounded very positive about bringing me onboard, but I did not hear from them for a couple of weeks, until I emailed the recruiter and she said the position had been filled. I checked cnbc.com and their stock had fallen 35% one day before due to earnings miss. My guess is that new hirings were suspended. Hope they get stuff back together, they seem to be a good company.

    Interview Details

    Applied on-line and also had employee contact. Phone discussion with recruiter followed by setting up 1-1's with 2 folks in HR. Met recruiter and other HR individual who greeted me and chatted about the company as interviewers were running late. I liked all the people that I met and spoke with - good energy and appeared to be a positive culture. One interview was challenging and was mostly behavioral interviewing questions - the 2nd was mostly conversational in tone. No timeline was shared with me regarding next steps on the interview process or when they would get back to me.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Silver Spring Networks Inc. in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    It is a high touch culture and I appreciated meeting everyone on the team and those in the business. Very casual and pragmatic interview questions. Came in to meet the HR leaders and then came in a second time to meet business clients. Felt like I had a good sense of the culture and team.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked about what I thought about Gen X and their desire for work life balance, but it was more a conversational topic and not what I have done specifically in my past to address that.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Silver Spring Networks Inc. in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    Extensive. Many phone interviews, in-person interview, and a trip to Corporate headquarters for another round. This process lasted months. Each interview covered the same information as related to past experience and this went on and on. During my visit to Corporate Headquarters, I had 5 interviews from employees ranging from project managers to a VP. All were pretty much the same and left me wondering what the Company was looking for?
