Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at NVIDIA (Santa Clara, CA) in April 2016.

Interview

2 phone screens followed by an onsite. Met with multiple people from the team, management and also people from teams you would interact with. Everyone seemed stuck up on culture.
Even though i answered all the questions- technical and behavioral they kept coming back to how they need to find someone who would fit their culture.

    Interview

    looking for a internship position. I got 2 phone interviews after attending univerisity career fair. The process is very slow. Some question about MOSFETs, gaussian distribution, C coding, verilog and OpAmp in the 1st interview. Timing analysis of digital circuits and operation mode of MOSFETs are focused on the 2nd interview.
