    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Campbell, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    One good thing about the process was they respond fairly quickly. Although, it could just be because I didn’t make it to the offer.
    HR and manager round was fairly straightforward. Talked about my experience.
    The coding question was hard, at least for me. Especially if you consider the interviewer who seemed to be a junior guy.
    I don’t understand why people expect you to not just come up but also code a solution that you took hours to think of in a matter of minutes. It’s just ridiculous.

    Interview Questions

    • Hackerrank coding question:
      You are given 2 arrays: one representing the time people arrive at a door and other representing the direction they want to go(in or out)
      You have to find at what time each person will use the door provided no 2 people can use the door at the same time.

      Constraints: the door starts with ‘in’ position, in case of a conflict(2 or more people trying to use the door at the same time), the direction previously used holds precedence. If there is no conflict whoever comes first uses the door. Also if no one uses the door, it reverts back to the starting ‘in’ position.
      Should be linear time complexity.

      If you solve this, please comment with how much time you think you would need to solve this in an interview and your yoe.. just wondering   1 Answer

    A combination of in-person and phone interviews as well as a SQL programming test. The staff at Fivetran are all very friendly and intelligent, so the process ran very smoothly and efficiently. There was never a question of what the next steps would-be, and HR was extremely responsive to any questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Fivetran (Denver, CO) in February 2020.

    The interview process was pretty standard. Started with a phone screen, then sourcing homework assignment, and lastly, a 3 hour onsite interview. They focused a lot on making sure I resonated with values of the company and that I could source passive candidates. It was a very streamlined interview process, and I felt that I received excellent communication throughout.

    Very professional and engaging. They care about their team and want to make sure they are selecting the right people. The sales team there seems like they are all A players who have set their ego aside and care about the direction of the company more than personal gain
