    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Sophos.

    Interview

    Sent my resume in through a friend on the team. First round interview was simply a coding interview. Two relatively easy questions. I solved the first and he asked me okay, how would you test this? Next question I did not quite have time to finish but we chatted about how I would have done it and I thought it went pretty well.
