    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Infoblox (Santa Clara, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    All applicants have to take a behavioral and basic competency online exam. After passing it, it took a month before the recruiter reached out again to set up a phone interview. Was supposed to speak with two engineers, but one never called and the second one rescheduled twice. Recruiters seemed to be annoyed with me informing them of the rescheduling. When the call eventually happened, the engineer was unprepared and seemed to have trouble remembering what position I was applying for. Eventually he found the script either he or the department prepared and read directly off of that, describing what the position entailed. Had high hopes for this opportunity, but will not be moving forward with this application.

    Pricing Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Infoblox (Santa Clara, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Extremely fast interviewing process. I applied online and heard back within a couple business days, having had the initial HR phone screen later that week. Two phone interviews occurred in the two consecutive following days, along with a video chat with the head pricing analyst to assess my aptitude and thought process for a case analysis. I was offered the role the very next day, so the entire interview to hiring process took exactly one week. Not bad at all.

    Due to being a long-distant candidate, I was unable to accept the summer internship position, which was an incredibly difficult decision to make given the conveniently rapid process, location, and personalities of the people I interviewed with. Ultimately, I gracefully declined the offer via e-mail, and while I didn't expect a response, acknowledgement of my desire to maintain contact so we can revisit this next year (when I graduate) would have been nice. I guess it's just business as usual, as they say.

    Interview Questions

    • We are declared the market leader in DNS, DHCP, and IP Address Management. What type of strategies would you employ when facing the challenges of direct competition, who may possess less expensive, perhaps even free alternatives, to ensure that we stay on top?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I do not live in the San Francisco Bay Area and could not justify, as an intern, spending 30%+ of my monthly take-home pay on renting an overpriced bedroom in a shared living space. Without logistical headaches, I would have accepted the offer immediately.

    Senior Software Engineer, Server Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Infoblox (Santa Clara, CA).

    Interview

    The interview was scheduled very quickly after the phone screen. Phone screens are technical, basic classic questions about linked lists, data structures, linux, networking. Interviewed for about 4 hours, it was nice experience with video conferencing when talking to the remote engineers. Very good facilities and professional staff and high tech interview rooms. Manager was very flexible in discussion of base salary and overall compensation expectations, based on current salary, experience. The only draw back is that the stock is undervalued now, so RSUs they give might not look like a lot, unless you take a bet on the company growth.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Infoblox (Santa Clara, CA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    About month long process from start to finish. Started with phone interview with hiring manager and then met with the team for interviews in person, also had lunch onsite. People were pleasant and the company poised to grow with security as a focus. I loved the new facility and feel. Seemed to be people friendly which I like. I have to say that the recruiter who introduced me to the opportunity played a big role in keeping me interested and positioning me well throughout the process. I really appreciated the manager and team who comforted me about the possibility to have a work life balance... outside of major product launches of course :) I am glad I accepted the offer and am enjoying working at Infoblox. Highly recommend it!
