    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at NVIDIA (Santa Clara, CA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    One full work day of ~1 hour interviews (including lunch, etc). Each interview was with a different member of the team. They asked the same typical puzzle type questions that you'll see at many tech companies, having me write small algorithms on the whiteboard to manipulate data structures and such.
