Interview Details –
There was one phone screen which was brief and surprising as I wasn't expecting a call before an email confirmation about a possible phone interview. I did a decent job apparently as I was called later for an onsite interview.
The onsite interview process was very good. I was interviewed by 2 peers first who gave a lot of importance to my algorithmic skills. I was later interviewed by the manager who was very encouraging during the interview. I thought I did okay. A month later, I was called and told that they would like to hire me.
The work culture seemed very professional and I was told that a lot of stress is laid on taking initiative and learning what is unknown. The team seemed very solid in their fundamentals. I was told that encouragement is given to take up projects of ones liking - which pretty much implies that you are responsible for it from start to finish (covering the basic design to the detailed design, coding, unit test and possibly integration testing) They said a lot of attention is given to follow programming standards. In short they wanted their employees to code right - write code that scales well, can be reused and is object oriented. All that is absolutely true.
Interview Question – Describe the internals of how the GMP library handles big numbers Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Negotiations will probably be unsuccessful. A lot of money is made via bonuses which is a very encouraging culture here.
