    Current Employee - Software Engineering Intern in Mountain View, CA

    I have been working at LinkedIn as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Everything here was amazing. The food was unbelievable, and so healthy. I am vegetarian, so I can comment on the great restaurant-quality Indian food; additionally, the portions are all small so it's easier to make good choices.
    The culture in general is great. Everyone is super friendly and the CEO is very lively, honest, and everyone loves him. Overall, I worked a regular 40-hour week, and got to work on significant features in a small team.
    I saw no bureaucracy or anything like that.
    Also, the pay was very high for interns and very high for new grads as well.

    Cons

    The gym is small.
    Everyone in Mountain View is very tech-focused. It'd be nice to have more of the business people to share offices with as well.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at LinkedIn in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter on LinkedIn, who later called me and informally discussed the position they were looking for and asked about my background. After this phone call, the recruiter scheduled an hour-long technical phone interview with two software engineers based on my availability, which happened to be 2 weeks after this initial phone call from the recruiter.

    The technical phone screen was conducted using collabedit. First, the interviewer asked about my background and what my favorite project was that I had worked on. Then, the technical questions began. He said, depending on the time, that 2 coding questions would be asked and we had enough time for both questions plus extra time for me to ask them questions. I coded my answers in C++.

    I was notified 3 days after the phone screen that they would not be moving forward with me.

    Interview Questions
    • Implement double pow(double a, int b) without using any already built-in functions (aka, don't use an already defined pow function).   View Answer
    • Given two (dictionary) words as Strings, determine if they are isomorphic. Two words are called isomorphic if the letters in one word can be remapped to get the second word. Remapping a letter means replacing all occurrences of it with another letter while the ordering of the letters remains unchanged. No two letters may map to the same letter, but a letter may map to itself.

      Example:
      Given "foo", "app"; returns true
         we can map 'f' -> 'a' and 'o' -> 'p'
      Given "bar", "foo"; returns false
         we can't map both 'a' and 'r' to 'o'

      Given "turtle", "tletur"; returns true
         we can map 't' -> 't', 'u' -> 'l', 'r' -> 'e', 'l' -> 'u', 'e' -'r'

      Given "ab", "ca"; returns true
         we can map 'a' -> 'c', 'b'
