    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at GoPro.

    Interview

    Overall, I felt the interview experience with GoPro was very flexible, relaxing and interactive. It's more of a conversation atmosphere than a stressful screening process.

    Applied via the company website. Got the phone call from recruiter after about 2 weeks after application and had a basic conversation: I was asked to briefly go thru my CV and the recruiter introduced the job, I was notified about the further interview processes soon after the phone call;

    > Formal interview with the recruiter (around 1 hour): I personally found this round behavioral based and was meant to assess the personality, communication skills, as well as some general knowledge about electronics industry. There were a few behavioral questions, also got some detailed questions regarding my project experience in college as I was a grad applicant;

    > Interview with manager and senior workers (around 1.5 hours): this round I got some technical questions related to my area of expertise;

    > Interview with higher level manager of the team (around 30 minutes): this was also the final round, I introduced myself and asked some questions about the team.

    Interview Questions

    Software Development Test Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GoPro (San Mateo, CA).

    Interview

    There were 1 or 2 preliminary interviews (there must have been a second, but I don't recall many details about it). After that I got invited for an onsite. This review is about that. There were four interviewers:

    The first, with a dev. This was pleasant, conversational, and not too challenging

    The second, with a manager. He drew out an application architecture on the whiteboard and asked me how I would go about testing it. I felt like the question was too broad and I had a hard time answering it.

    The third, with a test dev. She gave me typical whiteboard problems, which were fine although I was feeling a little discouraged after the previous interviewer.

    The fourth, with another manager. We started making small talk / typical generic interview questions and then she asked me a question I found pretty bizarre. It was basically a series of hypothetical situations in which I gradually got more work piled on me, and the prompt "what would you do then?".

    To paraphrase:

    interviewer: "you have a 10 day project, how do you manage your time?"
    me: "I consult with peers, work iteratively, etc"
    interviewer: "halfway through you get another project, what now?"
    me: "i balance time between projects, etc"
    interviewer: "it's friday, you're behind, and everything's due monday. what now?"

    at which point I broke out of character in this little role play. I don't remember exactly what I said,
    but it was something along the lines of "you seem to be implying that it's expected to work on the
    weekends. Is this true? How long do people work here?"

    To which she responded: "it depends, but it's silicon valley, so most everyone works more than 40 hours"
    To which I respond: "not true, many companies work 40 hour weeks."

    Yeah, so you get the idea, that last interviewer really didn't go well at all. She probably thinks I'm some
    communist agitator.

    Firmware Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GoPro.

    Interview

    I have applied in the GoPro Careers website and within a day, I got an E-Mail from recruiter to schedule telephone call.
    I was interviewed by the Director of Firmware, I was asked to explain about my previous experience, tough project and tough issue faced. Though I have not included the flight control systems in my Resume, my profile matched 70% of job requirements, hope this is the reason I got a call, but the Director himself told over the call that he was looking a guy with the flight control systems background.
    Finally, I was told that they will keep my resume and if anything perfectly matches with my skills they will consider :) most of the calls end like this.

    I was not sure if GoPro wanted Engineer specific to flight control systems, then why did they select a resume where they do not see it as included in the skills.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GoPro (San Mateo, CA).

    Interview

    The process was efficient and took just over 2 weeks. I applied online and was contacted by the recruiter. The recruiter then scheduled a phone interview with the hiring manager. That went well and I was then invited in for onsite interviews. The recruiters coordinator requested available interview times. I gave times that would work and times when I was not available. The coordinator then went and scheduled the onsite interviews during a time that I was not available. Very confusing...the response was that it was the only time that would work. I reworked my schedule to fit. The interviewers seemed nice, genuine and for the most part, on the young side without a lot of experience. The recruiter got back to me within a couple of days.

    Overall, a good experience.
