Software Development Engineer In Test II Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
No Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in August 2016.

Interview

I applied online and a recruiter reached out to me. After couple of weeks she arranged a phone interview. As this was a FW validation position for SSD drives, the phone interview was based on debugging NVMe bugs. Then I was asked for another technical phone interview where I was asked basic coding questions. First problem was on bit manipulation and second one was on designing binary search. After passing this round, I was flown to Seattle, WA for onsite interview. As I signed NDA, I can not say much about it. But the technical questions were very easy and shouldn't be hard for you if you are swift in coding. But almost everyone kept asking customer related questions. I am very surprised that I did not get any offer and I have no idea why as I aced all the technical questions. But if I were to take a blind guess its due to the customer related questions that may not have matched to the expectation of the company standard. But regardless of everything I had a very good interview experience. My recommendation would be, prepare a looooot, not for the coding maybe, but for the questions they will pose on your stands on the topic of customers.

Interview Questions

  • Phone interview 1: NVMe debugging
    Phone Interview 2: Coding bit manipulation + binary search
    On site interview: I can not disclose, I signed NDA. But pretty easy coding questions.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon (Seattle, WA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Nothing unusual. Had two phone screens and was invited for an in-house. In-house was the typical Amazon interview: 4 rounds + coffee with hiring manager. Ended up getting offered a QAE II role because I didn't do as well on the bar raiser's coding question. Amazon interviews will consist of coding plus how well you present examples of the leadership principles. For test roles, there will be additional questions about testing and quality.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amazon in July 2013.

    Interview

    Half day interview with 5 people, 45 minutes a piece. Manager, bar raiser, and 3 developers/testers. Technical questions expected to be filled out on a white board (they do take a picture of it). 1-2 questions depending on the time. Don't be afraid to ask for tips and guidance, just not too much. Better not to get completely stuck than to stumble once or twice.

    Interview Questions

    • Most questions are around data structures. Also expect word puzzles, like write an algorithm to spell out actual numbers. E.g. 121 -> "One Hundred and Twenty One".   2 Answers

    Negotiation

    No negotiations at that level (at least none I could see).
