    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Webroot Software in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    I put in my resume for machine learning at a job fair, and got an e-mail after a couple of weeks, through which we scheduled a technical phone interview. Got interviewed by the guy who would later be my senior/boss/whatever (he was practically a one-person team), and though his accent was hard to understand at first, the interview was reasonable and basically just made sure I wasn't clueless.

    When I went in for the in-person interview I was greeted quite nicely and made to feel very comfortable. I was interviewed by 3 different people. Roughly speaking, first guy asked algorithms, second guy (same one who did phone interview) gave me a chance to explain a previous project, and then asked what aspects of the work I was most interested in.

    Director of Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Broomfield, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Broomfield, CO
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Webroot Software in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    The place is full of obvious senior executive cronies. Kenton somethingoranother (he is listed on the management team on the website) is first in line. He has followed the CEO around from place to place probably causing massive disruption wherever he has gone. There are a few others like him on the staff but none as arrogant and off-putting. The CEO is a has-been name-dropper in the technology world. The people who have worked for him like to talk about all of the businesses he "turned around" or "sold off" but they are all small potatoes. Most of those businesses delivered zero value to the acquiring company. I am glad that I did not get an offer from these guys...they did me a HUGE favor.

    Interview Questions
    • The most unexpected thing about the interview was that I didn't get any challenging questions. I judge a company by the quality of the interviewers and I would give these guys a 0.0.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Terrible leadership from the top on down. There are a few bright spots but even those people are gone or are on their way out the door.

    QA Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Mateo, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Webroot Software in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    My Interview at Webroot was not a very tough one. It was for the QA and Testing Intern. So when I went for the interview the manager asked me how comfortable I was at coding and networking. So I said I was good at programming but not so good at networking. So he asked me some very simple algos like prime no and palindrome. Then he asked for some few very basic questions in programming, after that he proceeded to networking, the interviewer asked me about the difference between router and switch and the TCP layers and there functionality.

    It was a pretty simple interview process. I guess because it was for a post of intern. Well they dont pay much infact very less. The next day i got an email that i have been selected and sent me the forms i need to fill.

    Application Details

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Webroot Software in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very professional. I was contacted by the Worldwide Recruiter and she set up a phone interview with the Hiring Manager, after which I was invited for a 1:1 interview with the Hiring Manager within a week. After that, I was invited for a panel interview with 5 people (3 based in Colorado, the HQ of the company, and 2 in California), a mix of video conference and in-person interviews that lasted for a total of 4 hours with lunch included. The office in California is quite pleasant and in a convenient location, in a business park, accessible by car and also public transportation if desired. The personnel, including office staff, employees, and the Marketing and Product Management team, were friendly and warm. The interview process was pleasant and smooth. After the background check, I accepted the offer.

    Interview Details

    My manager didn't know much technically. He was more interested in how able and willing I was to work extended hours and weekends. Through the interview process it became very clear to me the manager relied heavily on people in need of work visas. He felt it made them more "responsible".
