Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Sunnyvale, CA

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at eGain Communications in April 2012.

Interview Details – I was referred to eGain through a non-profit employment agency.

The first step was an e-mail questionnaire with the "classic" questions: describe my previous project, how I dealt with difficult situations, my desired compensation and why I would be a good candidate.

This was followed by an on-site interview with what was supposed to be three people. The first was an engineer who asked me a few technical questions; I don't remember much about them, except they weren't too difficult. Next up was a systems architect who asked me how I'd design the infrastructure for a large-scale web service. The interview ended early because the third person, the VP, was not able to come that day.

Although I felt things went fairly well, I did not hear from the company since. I e-mailed them a week later to inquire about my status, and only then was I told they would not be moving forward.

Interview Question – How I would design the infrastructure for a large-scale web application.   Answer Question

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Pune (India)

The process took a day - interviewed at eGain Communications in November 2010.

Interview Details – The Interview had a written round with technical and analogical sections. It was followed by oral round of technical interview by a senior tech-lead and the team manager. The oral interview was not much on theoretical details of the programming language but at a conceptual level. This is the reason I accepted the offer to join eGain. In most other companies in IT the interviews are mostly about digging dip into theories and skipping the much essential ability to solve problems, which is what software development is all about.

I am about to complete a year in eGain and I am fully satisfied by everything I can imagine, be it work culture. the quality of projects, the policies, and learning I had and the mentoring I got! It's a great place to work!

Interview Question – How to find a number in a array which is repeated?   View Answer
