    Former Contractor - Information Security Analyst in San Diego, CA

    I worked at Sequenom as a contractor (less than a year)


    The team I worked for was very knowledgeable and wanted to make an impact on the rest of the company in regards to Information Security and Compliance.


    Some of the employees there were not receptive to change. Going from a company with a small amount of employees (>300) to a huge boost of about 600+ within a couple of years there where a lot of disagreements from other units about our approach on security.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Sequenom.

    Interview Details

    They were looking for people with strong algorithmic background, which I didn't have. The interview questions generally revolved around popular genome analysis tools and the algorithms behind them. I had experience with bacterial evolution and analyzing bacterial genomic data, so they also asked me how I had used those tools to analyze those data.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing particularly difficult, given that you know some algorithms.   Answer Question
