    Systems Software Developer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and first had a phone screening with the dev manager where he asked me some basic questions about my resume and current position and why I was looking for a change. He described what their team did and what the role would cover.
    Next, I was invited to in person interview where I was interviewed by 2 engineers - the dev manager and another developer. They asked me some security related questions a few of which I didn't know the answers for. The coding questions were easy. But, they were focusing more on the security aspect of the algorithms and not general problem solving skills.
    I guess even if my programming was good I didn't make the cut because of my lack of security knowledge.

    Interview Questions

    • They gave a piece of code and asked to make one of the functions more secure.   Answer Question
