    Staff Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Delphix (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Long but thorough interview process. Required a presentation on a subject I was expert in, given to about 6 or 8 people - they were polite, interested, and asked good questions. Some really good technical interviews: some whiteboard / theory things that became an interesting discussion more than an interview (I learned a lot about ZFS). A great coding exercise with laptop, with interviewer watching, instead of whiteboard that required writing working code...seemed a much better way to test coding ability

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Delphix.

    Interview

    The process was extremely slow and drawn out. There were 4 interviews: a behavioural interview, a coding challenge interview, a system design interview, and an interview with your possible manager. The challenges were unique but easy. They made me wait about 2 weeks in between each stage. After I finished one stage, it would take the recruiter about a week to get back to me and schedule the next stage at least a week later. They send out interviews to almost everyone who applied, despite only having only a small amount of spots open. I applied to other companies while interviewing here and got offers that would have expired before I was done with Delphix's process at the rate they were going.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Delphix.

    Interview

    I applied through my university. Then, I was set up for a initial phone screen, an online coding round for which an engineer called to explain the question and another phone call that involved some technical discussions.

    After this was done, I heard back from the HR that she got positive reviews and would like to move forward for on-site interviews and she scheduled a phone call to explain the process. But the HR never called. When I followed up, the HR rescheduled it and did not call, again!! Instead, I get an email saying that they were "re-evaluating hiring plans" and are not looking to hire someone with my experience level!

    Average Interview

    Interview

    The interview process seems longer than it needs to be. First I received an email for a phone conversation with a recruiter. Afterwards I scheduled a phone conversation with an engineer who gave me a coding problem and gave me 24 hours to find the solution. Then I had another phone conversation with an engineer who gave me two scenarios and asked me to come up with test cases, potential problems and solutions, etc for the two scenarios. This followed by another conversation with the recruiter who just wanted to see how I was doing and answer any questions. Finally there was a final phone conversation where I was just asked a few questions about my resume and any projects.

    QA Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Delphix (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    4 Interviews total, made it to the third. First interview was behavioral with a recruiter, then a relatively difficult coding test for the second, a testing design question for the third, and an onsite interview which I did not make it to. Interviewers were nice, although I think the third one seemed rushed and didn't give me much time to answer the question before she just gave me the answer. Overall positive experience, although I don't understand why they need 4 interviews for an intern.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Delphix (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, recieved a response the next day to schedule a phone interview. The interview date was moved back twice, due to internal circumstances. On the scheduled day and time of the interview, received no phone call. Emailed recruiter 15 minutes after the scheduled time, but received no response. Emailed again after a few days, bug again no response. It was extremely unprofessional of them to cut off all contact with me after offering an interview.

    Interview

    Recruiter and engineers were so encouraging! I applied and then got an email from the recruiter. I completed the coding challenge which was not too bad. Then we scheduled the next interview. Did not make it past this round. The next round would have been an interview with HR.

    • Coding challenge and then a design interview. You speak to an engineer for a dew minutes and ask any questions and then he gives you the problem for the coding challenge. The design question had multiple parts that built off of your previous answer.   Answer Question
