    Deployment Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sunnyvale, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Mirantis (Sunnyvale, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Was recruited through LinkedIn. Had a phone screen with the recruiter, then with a Manager. Was flown out to California for the interview. Great accommodations. Interviewed with a scheduled list of Engineers. They each had their own style of interviewing. From easy and short, to long and difficult.

    I was given a riddle that I found pretty challenging. I was able to answer it correctly. No spoilers. The riddle is a mixture of personality test and test of wit. I'll be incorporating this next time I'm asked to interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Mirantis in April 2016.

    Interview

    Spoke with a recruiter on the phone for 20-30 minutes. The recruiter wanted me to contact him a week later to schedule a phone interview with the hiring manager. I contacted the recruiter a week later, but the recruiter never responded. Not very classy, especially since I took the time to watch their weekly webinar to learn more about their product line.

    Architect Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mountain View, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mirantis (Mountain View, CA).

    Interview

    Combination of emails, phone calls and in-person interviews. Called and spoke to a recruiter and she placed me in touch with the hiring manager. Had a great call with the manager so he put me in touch with the Director and VP. Had a call with the Director and that led to an on-site interview with everyone at the company(just kidding, although I did meet a ton of people.) The interview consisted of mini-interviews with the manager, developers, support folks and the Director and VP. It was very relaxed and people were genuinely engaging. It was the first interview where I felt that they wanted me to succeed, wanted me to tell them everything I knew so they could really go to bat FOR me, unlike other interviews where they want to see what you don't know versus what you do know.

    Prior to this interview I had received multiple other offers from other similar companies but when the interview was over, I really felt something special about Mirantis.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Mirantis.

    Interview

    I had already been working under contract and was told by my handler that management wanted to talk with me about coming on full-time. Since I was working remotely, we arranged to have the interview over Skype. I first spoke with the director of Marketing and then someone from Development. It was easy going and uncomplicated.

    Interview Questions

    • Interestingly enough, there were no difficult or unexpected questions. Since I had been working under contract for a few weeks, the interview was something of a formality. They did talk about company structure and their expectations of me that were beyond the scope of my contract work, though.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. They had a budget and it met my needs.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Mirantis in July 2013.

    Interview

    I had an initial 30-minute phone interview with a recruiter. The recruiter provided a brief overview of the role. She then asked me to describe skills in previous roles that were relevant to the position. I believe that our conversation went well, since I was scheduled for a second phone interview with the VP of Marketing.

    The second phone interview was 45 minutes in duration. The first 15 minutes were focused on the description of the role and the duties. For the following 20 minutes I was asked to describe my skills and background. There were a few questions asked during this time, pertaining to my experience. The last 10 minutes were utilized for further questions I had about the position.

    Technical Staff Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Mirantis (San Francisco, CA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online. Contacted by HR and then a long bit of getting phone screen with hiring manager settled. Talked to hiring manager on the phone and then to another team member. Recontacted by hiring manager for a longer interview, then what seemed like a rubber stamp interview with hiring manager's boss. More phone calls from hiring manager rephrasing job duties, which was strange.

    Interview Questions

    • Verification of technical skills. Switching up of job duties and reverification of skills for that. Strange process.   Answer Question
