Engineering Manager Interview

Engineering Manager
San Francisco, CA

The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at hi5 in May 2008.

Interview Details – I was contacted over email (through LinkedIn) by an internal recruiter, who was very organized and clear through the entire process. We started with a phone screen for about an hour. Then I had a phone interview with the hiring manager, followed by an in person interview with the hiring manager and one of the hiring manager's peers (a third planned interviewer was out of the office).

The people seemed bright and interesting to talk with. The office was an open plan style with everyone in cubes. It seemed informal, but hard working.

Interview Question – List some key metrics related to our business and describe how you would go about collecting and tracking them.   Answer Question

Engineering Interview


I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at hi5 in September 2010.

Interview Details – The interview was for 30 minutes. It consisted of brain teasers alone.
1. Question on breaking eggs from a 100 storey building. Improvise the answer.
2. Questions on my projects and how I approached them.
Overall, the interview was easy.
