    Read about life within our Product Delivery organisation from one of our Principal Technologists.

    A minute with Brian Hobbs, Principal Technologist in our Development Team

    Computers! You know what they say - once a geek, always a geek. My interest started when I was young (before computing was even an option at school) when my parents bought me my first computer - a Sinclair ZX81. And not just any old ZX8 - I also had the 16Kb RAM add-on.

    Pros

    They are in a good market that is in need of IDBS products. Company is trying to listen to the market to determine their roadmap. They have many dedicated people and it is overall a friendly place.

    Cons

    25 year old company that is still very immature. Processes are very ad hoc. Very little oversight. The manage from crisis to crisis. Pay varies a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Bring on new products. Don't just enhance existing products. Adopt a few processes at a time and refine them as you go. Don't keep trying to roll out grand initiatives

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at ID Business Solutions (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    I had a phone interview, followed by an on-site interview. It was a nice and friendly interview of about an hour with Line Manager, Lead Developer and a Senior Developer from his team. They briefly highlighted role responsibilities and what part of the product I would be working on, then they cracked on with the technical part of the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Mainly focused on core Java. Some question on algorithms, e.g. sorting, tree search. DBMS fundamentals, e.g. create a simple DB schema, schema normalisation.   Answer Question
