    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at SlideShare.

    Interview Details

    I had applied online through the ads on linkedIn. I got a call in less than 2 weeks from the recruiter. The initial screening was for 45 mins where the recruiter asked about my background, experience, questions on my resume. There were questions about the development environment and languages like if I was comfortable to contribute to both front and back development even if particular about just one of them, the location of the company etc. Then I was set up for a telephonic interview. The telephonic round included a coding question and discussion about the problem. I was given one hour to complete the code after the call.

    Three-staged interview process: online puzzle, phone screen, and on-site. It starts off with an online time-limited puzzle. Be prepared with every stage, they have a small team and are more of looking for full-stack players.

    Interview Questions
    • The online-puzzle is quite challenging, take more time considering all the edge cases instead of submitting the solution right away even if it passes all provided test cases.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at SlideShare in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    A very hands on interview. Gave me a problem to code in (Ruby on Rails), and let me work on it for about 30 minutes before checking on me again. It involved ActiveRecord stuff.

    Interviewer was friendly and also set out to teach me a thing or two along the way even as I stumbled my way through the interview. A good experience overall regardless of the outcome.

    Interview Questions
    • I didn't have much experience with caching and database querying tricks at the time (e.g. how to avoid N+1 query problem), so I stumbled there.   Answer Question

    Overall it was pretty good. It was essentially a Skype chat where your are asked you to code two programs (one easy, one difficult) and he watches you via screen-sharing. You also go over your resume. I interviewed with the CTO, Jonathan, and he was extremely nice. I was able to get the first question correct, and my algorithm was the second one was correct, I just had a couple tiny bugs which I couldn't find during the interview, but he said I could email him the code as soon as I finished it.

    Interview Details

    Write programs using any language and any IDE in half an hour. It was kind of stressful when someone is watching you write a program in limited amount of time but the questions are from easy to more complex so you have time to warm up and reduce the nervousness. The interview is very nice and friendly so overall I feel comfortable.
