    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kinaxis (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Initial 30 minute phone technical interview on basic C++ concepts.
    1) What is polymorphism?
    2) When would you want to use a virtual method?
    3) Why would you want to use an array vs a hashmap (Must explain big-O of access, insert, delete, search)
    4) What was is a class vs an object.
    5) How can you determine if a number is even (Using modulus is a common, but they want the bit shift answer because its 1 machine instruction. Though, often the compiler will optimize this for you)
    6) Describe how to create a class hierarchy including member variables for a fictitious game with different colored cars

    Interview Questions

    • If you pass the phone interview, you'll be invited for the onsite. The onsite is 3 hrs, and broken up into different meeting where you'll be asked technical questions by different team leads. The questions range from easy to hard LeetCode questions, and you'll be expected to white board.

      They mainly want to see how you work out a problem.

      1) How do you detect a cycle in a singly linked list.
      2) How do you reverse a singly linked list.
      3) How do you merge two singly linked list.
      4) How do you detect duplicates in a singly list list, and return a list with no duplicated items.

      Note:

      They are transitioning to a SAAS company but their core product is still an executable. The data analytics is a dll that the database server imports. I was slightly disappointed that it wasn't completely web based.

      Half the data analytics team have Masters. The other half have Phds. The analytics team is the tiger team and is tightly watched by managements because their business success depends on this team.

      The company culture is very friendly. But don't assume that the relaxed interview atmosphere indicates they are leaning in your favour. They seem to be looking for new hires who can quickly ramp up on their supply chain management legacy codebase. Moreover, someone who can assist in helping refactor it using TDD, gmock, and gtest.

      So you have to be very knowledgable on algorithms and data structures and have experience in unit testing and continuous integration.   Answer Question
