    SWE Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cambridge, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Google (Cambridge, MA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    4 technical interviews on a variety of different topics, including systems design, recursive thinking, graph theory, and a couple of questions specific to my coding language of choice. There was not much talking about my past experience or projects or anything like that - Google assumes that you are competent and tests you on your ability to think on the spot, not have stuff prepared.
