    Data Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Berkeley, CA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at NAVTEQ (Berkeley, CA).


    I applied online to Nokia/HERE (formerly NAVTEQ) after finding the job listing. My initial contact was a phone call from an internal recruiter. I was only able to chat briefly, but was able to schedule a talk with the hiring manager for that afternoon. The phone call was very enjoyable. I talked mostly about my previous experience and my approaches to handling data. After that, I was invited to the Berkeley location for an in-person interview. The first step of the interview was an hour-long presentation. I presented some work I'd done that wasn't at all related to what Nokia/HERE does, but contained a lot of different ways to using data, visualizing results, and reporting. This was done with some of the Chicago part of the team listening in via web conference. This was followed by more traditional interview questions, lunch, and then more questions from the hiring manager. Overall, it was a very pleasant interview process. Minimal coding on a white board, and mostly they were interesting in my experience and my approaches to solving problems. About a week after the interview, I received an offer. I ultimately declined, but I'd definitely consider interviewing again in the future.

    Reasons for Declining

    The role didn't have as much of a production aspect as I wanted. I got the impression I'd mostly be coming up with neat ideas and maybe patents, but actually getting them into products and used by people would take lobbying and convincing product managers to have their engineers implement it.
