    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ottawa, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Irdeto (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    It was a phone screen followed by online quiz followed by in person interview. Low effort and rushed. Claimed they wanted to work with the best without doing much to filter for it. Some interviewers were absent or left early. No coding challenge, just software chit chat. Interviewer focused on a completely different language stack than what interview was for, because the interviewers stated they didn't know the language (?). Very strange, they determined this to be worthy enough to make a decision, despite no whiteboard or coding challenges.

    Be sure to understand the fundamentals of software, but good luck, you may be asked a set of questions that are more relevant to a different language and stack from what the job description says. Not a hard interview by any means.

    C++ Software Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Irdeto.

    Interview

    I applied through a friend in the company. First we had a phone call with an HR employee. The next step was a generic and adaptable online test. Questions were adaptable: they get more difficult as you answer or easier if you give wrong answers. However there were sql questions apart from c++ which I do no know. In the end they decided I do not have enough expertise.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Irdeto.

    Interview

    Code challenge + Remote Interview + On-site Interview

    A series of interview that wastes your time and money. I could feel they showed no interests while still invited me to the interview. This is an interview where you heard the interviewer said "I have no questions" upfront. They might be afraid of that somebody they like refuses their offer. So they put you to the interview with no reimbursement of travelling cost and a fake smile.

    It could be an interesting place to work if you are not somebody's backup. Ask them about their real feelings cause they do not pay your anything. Pros can be that people are in general friendly and their office is nice.

    Anyway I understand Tencent is really making good money FOR them.
