Senior Software Engineer Interview New York, NY

Can you tell me what a prime number is?


Interview Answer

1 Answer


I answered the question, but made clear that my science degree and 15+ years of experience writing software should have obviated the need for it. The interviewer told me I'd be surprised at some of the questions people missed - and though I did not say so, I was indeed surprised that they would get to the point of a face-to-face interview with a senior engineering candidate who lacked a grasp of junior high math concepts.
