I applied online. The process took 6 months. I interviewed at MapR Technologies

Interview

1 phone and 5 onsite; This will reveal my identity but I am only quoting facts. You have to fit flight fares within their budget- take red-eye or schedule after 2-3 months or however long it takes. Some people are smart and some are not so much. One such average guy asked Q about google protocol buffers (which I was not aware of then) as if its rocket science. Its just a common sense standardization but he felt superior to know that and massaged his ego. Lost my respect. Not much pre IPO equity advantage.

I interviewed at MapR Technologies

Interview

Phone interviewed with a recruiter who didn’t even know what she was asking! She doesn’t have any background knowledge of my field and gave comments without trying to understand. I feel lack of respect and she is definitely unprofessional. Also, she didn’t introduce the company or the position and she even didn’t give me any chance to ask a question! Be prepared to talk to someone is careless and avoid it if you can!

I interviewed at MapR Technologies

Interview

Interview with HR, Interview with Hiring Manager, a call back from HR letting me know they will be scheduling next steps soon. 2 weeks later, no word. Very unprofessional. They are certainly an older company in terms of work force. They don't seem to have the will power to compete against Cloudera or Hortonworks as they claim they are "the only converged platform". Overall, they are trying to IPO and or be bought out - not trying to grow a business, trying to sell the underlying tech.

I applied online. I interviewed at MapR Technologies (San Jose, CA) in Apr 2017

Interview

Phone screen by hiring manager. Followed by HR phone interview within a couple days. Then onsite interview within a few days. Clear communication from all company personnel on next steps and what to expect next - I appreciated this the most.

Interview Questions
  • Mostly situational interview for process and program management situations and skills review. Some technical questions about experience in Sys-admin in Linux platforms - intention behind these questions was to ensure comfort and basic tech skills needed for knowledge articles curation / validation. Interesting situations were around "Best practices in how to populate the KB with value added articles", "How to keep the KB fresh", and how to get over the what's in it for me questions that Support engineers are often posed with. Also, how KB process integrates with Communities.

The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at MapR Technologies

Interview

Hackerrank exercise and onsite interview with 4 people. Only one whiteboard question. The interviewer asked question with 25 minutes left and the question was not well formed. Seemed like the requirements kept changing as you asked more questions. I only had time to tell the approach. Apart from this interviewer, everyone else were very good.
