Software Quality Engineer Interview

Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MathWorks in January 2015.

Interview

There are three round phone interviews. If you pass, then you can meet the team onsite. Unfortunately, I didn't. The first round is from the Hire Manager, the questions focus on C++ and Matlab. And the second round is online coding. The last round is some open questions about their product.

To prepare the first two rounds, I suggest: a) read the interviews question for Associate Support Engineers; b) download a Matlab User Manual to read it - only 100+ pages; c) if you have no time to do the previous two, make sure you know what 's cell and what's struct, as well how to convert the one to the other.

No idea to answer those open questions.

Interview Questions

  • Open questions:
    1. how to compile a Matlab file to a C file?
    2. How to justify the converted C file is well organized?   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MathWorks (Natick, MA).

    Interview

    1. Sent email to arrange phone interview. Phone interview around 1hr for general information and tech questions. Half-half. It's kinda surprising that they asked you to solve tech question, instead of "do you know xxx", in the 1st phone call.
    2. Full day onsite interview. 1 hr presentation about your education and experience. Five 1-on-1 interviews afterwards including lunch. Four of them are tech person asking relative tech questions, one is HR person advertising the benefit of being hired by the company.
    3. They called and move on to background/reference check on the next day. Got offer after a week.

    Interview Questions

    • All tech questions are entry level math and programming question, which I've solved hundreds of time in the college. As long as you do have a degree in the relative field and you are familiar with their product, you won't have any problem. Go through their customer tutorial is a must-do. Though they are not hard questions, but 5 hours interview without a sec of break still drove me crazy - yes the lunch is also a part of the interview, for sure.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I extremely regret that I didn't negotiate the salary because it did meet my expectation. But I knew later that I was kinda under paid according to the market. Do you research dude.

    Interview

    Sent the resume to their website after I found there were some job openings. Got a response after about a month and was asked to setup a phone interview. After I told them the time I preferred, I got another email and was told that the phone interview was cancelled.
