    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Cray in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Head hunter found me via linked in. I believe the head hunter new my background based on my linked in connections and profile. I sent the head hunter my resume and he forwarded that to Cray.
