Senior Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Athlone (Ireland)
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ericsson-Worldwide (Athlone (Ireland)) in February 2013.

Interview

The final interview was a face to face interview with four people: two line managers, one HR representative and a lead architect.

1 - Technical background and reasoning: talked a lot about previous experiences and possible solutions to past problems. Every time that a specific past problem could be used for an existing Ericsson problem analogy, it was made so. There was quite a lot of talk about changing previous solutions that I was describing to try and gauge my adaptability and reasoning on dealing with new (and applicable to Ericsson at that point in time).
Quite a lot of whiteboard drawings involved in this part of the interview.

2 - Personal adaptability: there was some questions in regards to how I was planning to adapt, as at the time I would be moving countries (and continents) if I got the job. Not invasive questions, but well grounded ones that made sense both for setting my expectations and from the interviewers assurance as well.

Interview Questions

  • To change an existing solution that I was describing at the time to be able to be updated with no downtime at all. Explain the required changes on the architecture to support this and the trade offs.
    As the current solution did not require any hard no-downtime requirements (i.e it was only released on weekends where there was no active users) there was quite a lot of changes involved in this and it took quite a lot of time.   Answer Question
