    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MobileIron in April 2017.

    Interview

    Very unprofessional. The recruter contacted me over email to setup a phone screen. The call went well, and she was going to check with the hiring manager since the salary was above their range. No feedback for a month, and then I got an email inviting me for a coding interview with the manager, but no mention on the salary. I reminded her that she never got back to me on the salary, and that I won't proceed without a confirmation on the salary. She confirmed that the salary was OK and asked me to interview with the manager. The interview took place a couple days later. The question was very easy, but the manager was lost and did not seem to know about iterator. See details on the question below. He was not able to understand that I could loop through the list and safely remove items using an iterator. So he was not convinced the program works, and asked me to send the full program afterwards. I sent him the java source code, the link to the documentation on iterator, the instructions to build and run the code, and the output of the program. And since then, no feedback. After a couple days, I wrote to both the recruter and the manager, no response till now.

    The minimum a candidate would expect after going through 2 rounds of interviews is an email. Even if the decision is to not go forward, at least the company owes you that. And I found it very unprofessional that the recruter did this twice.
    I hope their CEO monitors this so that he can hire better recruiters. In order to attract you need to have good recruiters, it all starts from there.

    Don't waste your time with this company. Many of their employees are leaving (not surprising after all...), I encourage you to read their feedback.

    Interview Questions

    • Given a list of integers from 1 to 10, write code that will start 2 threads which will remove items from the list. One thread will remove the even numbers while the other will remove the odd ones.   1 Answer

    Customer Advocate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mountain View, CA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MobileIron (Mountain View, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The entire interview process from phone screen to offer took about 1 month. I had a phone screen with a recruiter, a phone interview with the hiring manager, 2 onsite interviews, another phone follow-up with the manager, and then the offer was made two days later.

    The interview for this position was easy and they asked basic questions about how I would handle difficult clients, what are some past situations I resolved well, etc. They seemed very concerned that a candidate wouldn't be allowed to handle the stress that came with this job.

    Everyone I interviewed with was casual and friendly and seemed like a great team to work with - the only negative part of the experience was with the recruiter after I was given an offer. She was very pushy when I didn't sign the offer right away and was rude when I was asking questions about 401(k), PTO, Salary, etc.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe an experience when you made the wrong decision and it adversely affected the client. Describe an experience when you made a great decision and it benefited the client.   Answer Question
    • How would you deal with the a CEO of a client company yelling at you about how much MobileIron sucks?   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MobileIron.

    Interview

    Was reached out to by HR. Went through 3 phone interviews and feedback from each was positive. However, no follow up from company even after I followed up on several occasions. Based on their hiring practices, i'm actually glad i didn't hear back. Perhaps an indicator of why they continue to struggle. Poor business practices...

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at MobileIron (Mountain View, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    started on time, interviewers were not pleasant in talking and rude, the way they were dressed as if they are relaxing on a beach or on a picnic, every interviewer has set questions to ask and would accept the answers which seem right to them, they were not open for lengthy discussions, not much information on the company, about the team etc.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at MobileIron (Mountain View, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The whole process took only about 1 week. This is the stupidest interview I have been through. The company was recommended by a recruiter. The phone screen was good and normal, it's about some basic java concepts like final, interface/abstract class, and I was asked to write a blocking queue and then some sql. The interviewer was nice and he knew I did good job. Then I went to onsite after 2 days, when I already had two offers and I told the recruiter about them. 3 interviewers talked with me, who are senior software engineers/manager/director. The funny thing is all these guys' knowledge about java is just final, abstract class and interface, and blocking queue and simple SQLs, they couldn't even ask any advanced topics. They repeated asking me similar low-level questions again and again, and the manager didn't even know what to ask, she was not confident and thought like an old machine with long response time. I tried so hard to answer them with patience. The most funny thing was I received an email saying that they would not move forward when I was still talking with the third guy. I don't think I didn't anything wrong, I received offers from much better companies but was rejected by these guys who couldn't even ask any advanced questions, and they didn't show basic politeness. The only reason I could imagine is that the offers I mentioned are beyond what they could afford.

    This company is full of dumb persons and they have no demeanor at all. I don't recommend anybody to contact them unless there is no other options, or you want to see how stupid a company could be.

    • Write a generic program which looks through each object in the list of objects,
      returning an array of all the objects that contain all of the key-value pairs listed in properties.
      Below is the example.

      Ex.

      var list =
      [
          {

            lName: 'Dang',
            displayName: 'Luan Dang',
            phNo: '123=-456',
            fName: 'Luan'

          },
          {
            fName: 'samir',
            lName: 'gandhi'
          }
       ]

       and propJSON = {
              fName: 'Luan',
              lName: 'Dang'
           }

      then output should be

      [
          {
            fName: 'Luan',
            lName: 'Dang',
            displayName: 'Luan Dang',
            phNo: '123=-456'
          }

      {
         fName: 'Akansha',
         lName: 'foo'
      }
         then output should be []

         function findObjects(list, propJSON) {
