Interview

Started with a half hour phone interview with Hiring Manager that was not technical. Second phone interview was a half hour of asking technical questions about graphics knowledge and vector math. Third interview was on site and consisted of 7 45 minute white board/technical sessions. An hour lunch was in between so I was there for a total of 6.5 hours. Questions range from C++ to graphics and everything in between. Extremely intelligent people who are very passionate about what they do so if you are similar minded then you will have fun!

    Interview

    It was very casual yet structured. I like my interview here better than else where where people treat interviewee like prisoners. It depends on the interviewer, but a lot of interviewers in other tech companies just can't communicate with people
