Senior Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cambridge, MA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GoDaddy (Cambridge, MA) in August 2016.

Interview

One technical phone screening with a hackerrank coding session, followed by 4 onsite interviews.
Overall the process was pretty straight forward and seemed legit.
What genuinely pissed me off was that someone from goDaddy contacted my current employer for references on me even before a decision was made on my candidacy. I had to talk with my manager about it. Luckily for me, I've got a good relationship with him. But goDaddy was one of my very first interviews and I am hoping the process of finding something new would take atleast 2-3 more months, so my current employee finding this out right now does create problems for me.
This was not professional. That said it is a company I'd hoped I worked for.

Interview Questions

  • Questions on my previous projects. Basic algorithm questions based on Linkedlist and hashmap.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at GoDaddy (Tempe, AZ) in May 2015.

    Interview

    4-hour interview process with four members of the team. Specific technical questions, with some FizzBuzz and some high-order. They interviewed for technical and professional skills. Clearly, they just aren't looking for someone that is only good writing code. An important interest also in your analytical and performance methods.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GoDaddy (Scottsdale, AZ).

    Interview

    There is a primary phone screen followed by multiple panel interviews with management and senior developers. The phone screen is mainly around resume analysis, with some easier technical questions at the end. The on-site panel interviews dive deeper into your technical aptitude, as well as behavioral questions. They don't seem to care as much about educational credentials as they do your demonstrated ability to develop applications, and how quickly you adapt to change.

    Interview Questions

    • Be prepared to whiteboard code! Even in the phone screen, you may be asked to whiteboard using a collaborative editor.   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GoDaddy (Gilbert, AZ) in April 2011.

    Interview

    They had me take a pretty dumb IQ/intelligence test with a large number of questions and limited time. Then I was given a simple problem to solve. When I solved the problem in about 30 seconds the interviewer falsely accused me of already being acquainted it.

    Interview Questions

    • You have been given two pieces of flammable rope. The speed at which each individual rope can burn is inconsistent, but if you light the end with a match, the short rope will take 30 minutes to burn and the long rope takes an hour. How can you used the ropes to determine when 45 minutes have passed?   2 Answers

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at GoDaddy (Scottsdale, AZ) in October 2010.

    Interview

    Group interview process involving team lead, another developer and development manager. Asked questions about my development skills in general, past projects, and why I wanted to join the team. I know from past experience that certain developers have a penchant for asking difficult 'riddle' style questions, but I didn't get asked any of these type of questions during my interview.

    Interview Questions

    • What is the best or most efficient way to use a list of the first 20 prime numbers in a program?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Almost nothing - it was an internal position doing the same thing for a different group. When applying for the same job, it seems like nothing is up for negotiation -- only the position itself.
