    Software Developer Interview

    Interview Details

    They're very heavy on interviews and weeding. First I took a skills test (I did well), then a "fit" phone interview from an HR person, then another phone interview from the hiring manager, who asked me a lot of technical questions, and one of those puzzle questions that software people sometimes like. After that, an in person interview. I'm not any good at those on the spot questions that want you to regurgitate textbook definitions of things, so I guess I didn't pass.

    Frankly I didn't feel I was a fit for a place that seems to care heavily about that kind of algorithmic thinking, but it'd be nice to have known that's really what they're looking for. The job description that came with it was essentially non-existent, the HR person could't really describe what they were doing either, and I only found out what the job was at the technical interview. Largely a waste of my, and their time.

    Places like this that want "heads down" developers need to start realizing that's what they're looking for, and start using language to describe the person they're looking for, not just a set of skills.

    Software Developer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Vital Images in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied for a software developer position and several months later I received an invitation to do an interview. After a standard interview with a hr person, there was a technical phone screen on C++. The technical interview was being done by the VP of engineering, which seemed a bit awkward and left somewhat of a small company impression to me.

    The phone screen itself consisted of pretty standard C++ questions on topics like operator overloading and polymorphism which the interviewer obviously read from a list. The interviewer seemed happy with textbook definitions of C++ concepts but when I departed from the standard textbook definition and explained a concept with an example, he hesitated and did not seem to understand the answer. I guess he was just reading questions with their answers from a list and if my response matched the answer he had on his list, he was happy. Otherwise, he just didn't know.

    I would rate the interview being of average difficulty. A few days later I received a reply that I had not passed the interview. The same week I had a much more difficult C++ interview at another company which I did pass. So I am not sure whether it were the interviewer's C++ skills or my C++ skills that caused me not to pass.
