    Geomatics Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Calgary, AB (Canada)
    Anonymous Employee in Calgary, AB (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at NovAtel.

    Interview Details

    Submitted an application via email. I was contacted by the HR a few months later. Then I was invited for the onsite interview that took approximately 1 hr. There were several senior engineers, who were asking pretty different questions: technical, programming and CV-based.

    Surprisingly, quite a few questions were out of field (not very related to Geomatics), but they were rather related to Computer Science. All interviewers were very friendly, and the interview itself was engaging.

    May apply to this company in the future, if there are any good opportunities available.

    Interview Questions
    • Though the position was Geomatics Engineer, there were several pretty tough questions about the embedded programming and multithreading.   Answer Question
