Unwired Planet Senior Manager Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Senior Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Unwired Planet in January 2009.
Interview Details – The engineering team seems to be smart. The recruiter contacted me out of the blue. He was prepared and had a good pitch. I first spoke to an engineering director via phone. It lasted about 50minutes, lots of technical and situational type of questions. The recruiter got back to me a few days later and invited me for an onsite. I met 4 engineers and a manager. They asked appropriate level of questions and the interview ran smoothly. Everyone was on time. I had to white board a number of questions. I sensed some attitude from one of the engineers. Not sure what that was about. But overall, it seemed like a good team. Not a great environment, it was pretty stale and bland. Overall though, it was okay. Nothing incredible and nothing horrible.
Side note. Too bad they are not doing well now. It was a good place while it lasted.
Interview Question – Memory mapping in C. It had been a while and I was going in for a mgr role. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Recruiter was very good. He negotiated well.
