Architect Interview

Anonymous Employee
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at NVIDIA.

Interview

after two midnight phone interviews i was flown in several days in advance to allow me to kick the jet lag.

i then spent 8 hours being asked hard, technical questions by 9 different people, i think.

a couple of the questions required epiphanies which i happened to have - so i was happy - but in general, i don't think those make very good interview questions. many fine interviewees are nervous and in no state to have epiphanies. conversely, you could have a middling interviewee who has heard the question before.

the final interviewer presented me with an offer. very impressive turnaround.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NVIDIA (Santa Clara, CA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I applied and received an email a week later, scheduling phone interviews. The phone interviews were over a couple of days and each lasted about 30 minutes. A few days later I was emailed and asked to come in for an on-site interview. I spoke to several managers where they asked me questions for about 30 minutes. I was then asked to complete two research quizzes, which lasted another 30 minutes.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at NVIDIA (Pudong, Shanghai (China)) in December 2011.

    Interview

    This is my first time to be in a group interview. There are two interviewers. They asked questions on computer architecture, compiler optimization, and general programming skills. They are very nice and give time to think, even when I decided to give up on one of questions. They are most junior people and they want to hire a senior one.
