    Mobile Business Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palo Alto, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palo Alto, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Tencent in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    The office in Palo Alto is only 6-7 employees large so the process is rather quick. 1 HR screener and 1 Phone Interview and 1 On-site with the BD Director. The office boasts a start-up culture but they have limited backing of the primary company in China. The outfit seems to be experimental and the expansion strategy to North America is very unclear. The interview was very direct with the domain expertise-level questions and a validation of how big your rolodex is to help assist with cold calling issues. Unfortunately the BD team is not strong enough to influence the Product Strategy due to a lack of technical fluency and thus the impact is rather limited in scope that has no hooks for business partners. No behavioral fit questions. Feedback was promptly given 1 week later.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palo Alto, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Tencent in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    I have 2 on site interviews. The first one last the entire afternoon from 2 pm to 6 pm. I have interviewed with 9 people. I later find out, 3 of them are from my project team, the other 6 are department heads and team leaders from other departments. The interview process is very friendly, non-intimidating. They never asked any "tricky questions" or brain twisters.

    The second interview I met with the General manager of the company. It's a very fast and easy meeting, and I had a very good impression with the company.

    About 2 days (I think) later, I got the call and was hired.

    Did the marketing internship for a month. Was a very good experience. They don't really have a fixed criteria as it is basically marketing for their app. As long as you're interested and have an adept knowledge of smart phones you are in.

    Interview Details

    1 HR interview and 2 Technique interview. Ask some questions about STL, C++, OS, Network and Algorithm. The hardest puzzle is a optimal stopping problem. There're some diamonds outside the door of every floor, you go through from bottom to top, can see the amount of diamonds of every floor, but can only pick once, how to maximum the expectation of diamonds you'll get.
