    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Sun Microsystems in April 2009.

    A lengthy process that fishes out the best from the pool. There are no 2nd stringers within the team -- it is a place to be a proud employee if chosen. Early Sun was the true excitement of any computer scientist: new technologies released almost weekly, quality products, and easy to become passionate about.
