Senior Software Engineer Interview

Senior Software Engineer
Sunnyvale, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 days - interviewed at innoPath in March 2010.

Interview Details – InnoPath seems to follow the pattern of sequential gatekeepers, i.e. the next-higher person will be "in a meeting" if you haven't passed the current level successfully. On the other hand, the process isn't reaally as organized as it might be, and the next person may actually be unavailable--in which a return visit will be needed. There's more emphasis on being able to understand and explain ideas and decision processes than on proving that your experience is identical to the "ideal candidate" profile someone has envisioned, and "overqualified" won't be a problem. Do expect the initial interview to contain some tough technical questions, but don't expect that you should be able to answer all of them authoritatively.

Interview Question – What's the difference between SQL inner and outer joins (asked of a non-specialist in databases).   Answer Question

Senior Software Engineer Interview

Senior Software Engineer

The process took a day - interviewed at innoPath in March 2011.

Interview Details – Had an initial phone screening with basic questions on past experience. Onsite interview with about 5 back to back interviews. Inteviews went generally well. Most of the people were nice except for one guy who had a mocking attitude. He was so anal about getting the syntax right and was also rude. Overall it was decent but that one guy messed things up. Not the best place to work by anystandards. Inteviews had a lot of whiteboarding. People generally were nice but the technology didnt seem interesting.

Interview Question – Questions on mem management, copy constructors, linkedlists, android architecture, virtual functions, etc   Answer Question
