Senior QA Engineer Interview

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Jive Software (Palo Alto, CA) in May 2011.

Interview

HR was pretty quick in scheduling and following up after interviews. I started with an on-site consisting of 3 1:1 interviews and one panel interview. The technical depth was fairly low, hardly any whiteboard coding and no programming test that included a laptop. The second interview day (also an on-site) went a little deeper technically but still remained shallow and was more about general quality engineering approaches than actual coding.

Interview Questions

  • General "How would you go about testing xyz" type of questions. Also a few questions regarding ant vs. maven, etc. Follow up questions were regarding how you would plan and implement test automation for a component/feature.   Answer Question
  • You are the new owner of component X and some of the automated tests are failing. How do you go about resolving the issues?   Answer Question

Negotiation

There was not a lot of room for negotiation and the salary hierarchies are overall not exceptional (which can be expected for a pre-IPO start-up). The current position of the company is promising which was the convincing factor.
