    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Virtual Instruments in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was referred by a friend whom had recently been hired by Virtual Instruments. After a brief phone interview on a Friday morning, I was offered an onsite interview. I came in Monday afternoon, and after interviewing with three different members of the team, I was offered a contract position on the spot by the department's manager. Everyone was very friendly and answered all of my questions about the company and the position.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Virtual Instruments in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was very impressed with Virtual Instrument's interview process. They were very organized from the time I was contacted by their recruiter to the offer stage. After interviewing with a few companies that were less than professional, I kept Virtual Instruments at the top because of the good feeling I had after my interview. I REALLY wanted the job after talking to everyone.

    The technical interview was challenging...coding, data structure questions, multi-threading, etc. I was also given logic and puzzle questions. It was good that the interview was not too easy to pass. The interviews I pass easily I always seems to worry at whether I am truly working with bright people. This interview had the right level of challenge where I had to really think about my answers. The interviewers are engaging and they will provide hints if you go off in the wrong direction in a very constructive way. I really liked that. It felt more like a discussion than a real interview. My best advice to anyone that interviews here is to be concise with your answers and able to talk about some of the projects in detail on your resume. I know I hate interviewing someone that can't give me details on work they clearly stated they did on their resume.

    I was able to walk through the company and I saw people having technical discussions and doing work in the labs. The atmosphere was pretty relaxed. Everyone seemed happy and the definitely not stressed. I got to ask a few folks about the work hours and I was surprised to find out that the hours were very normal and flexible.

    Another part of the process I enjoyed was working with their recruiter. I don't usually like working with recruiters but this one was different. She really knew the industry and she was able to clearly explain the company's product, direction and the how it all fits in the market. I even asked her about competitors and other products and we even had a pretty good conversation on the storage space. She offered very practical advice on what to look for in a start up. I'd say she had me at hello....

    With such a great experience, Virtual Instruments definitely topped my list and when I was offered the role, my compensation package was very attractive. It really was a no brainer to take this job.

    Interview Questions
    • Please describe a development project that you led. What were some challenges you faced? How did you resolve it? How did the overall project turn out? Would have done anything differently?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The recruiter asked me for what I was currently making and what I wanted in my next job pretty early in the interview stage. I was reluctant to give out this information out but she did mention that the hiring process was very quick...and it was because in less than week I got an offer. The negotiations and offer phase was very professional. This company is looking for talent and they know what talent is worth. When the offer was made to me, I really didn't need to go back for more. The package was very attractive and the company did try to meet my needs (which I let the recruiter know in the beginning).
