    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Global Relay in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Recruitment agency contacted me about an opening for a Java Developer. I was getting bored with my previous job and so and I agreed to try it out. First interview was a 30-min phone screen with the dev lead. Asked questions about Java, differences between data structures, and my work experience. I thought I botched it as I did not have lots of experience with Java - but I made it. Then they gave me a homework to work on. Nothing too difficult - it just took some time to code. They were happy with it and so they invited me for a second interview. The office was nice and they have free beers and snacks. The interviewers were with a dev lead, a developer, and a scrum master. They asked questions about the homework that I did. Then more Java questions - specifically around multi-threading. Then some programming-related puzzles - but nothing too crazy if you know your computer science fundamentals. Then HR gave me a questionnaire that was meant to get an insight on my personality. The last interview was a behavioral interview with 2 execs. They asked a lot of insightful questions that are meant to judge your character and fit with the company. After a day, HR called me and they were willing to extend me an offer - and I accepted after some negotiation with the salary.
