    Memory Validation Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at NVIDIA (Austin, TX) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Phone interview - looking for knowledge specific to my job
    On-site interview in Austin - mix of general knowledge, specific questions about memory and lots of questions about scopes and jitter measurements
    On-site interview in CA - similar to Austin interview. They flew me out for about 36 hours to talk to 4 team members. This was good because I was considering moving to CA and I was glad that I got to see it first, because I stayed in Austin.

    I was an interviewer at my old job, so I asked dozens of other people the kinds of questions that they asked me, so I think I breezed through it.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you measure cycle to cycle jitter on a scope (assuming you don't have JIT3 package?   1 Answer
    • Why are you leaving your current job after 8 years?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They asked what I made. I did not tell them what I made, but I said: "This is the amount for which I will leave my current company." Using glassdoor, I knew what the range was for this position, and I aimed a little higher than average. Also, I told them that I had a sizeable amount of RSUs. They matched what I asked for for salary and beat my current unvested RSU amount. I was very happy with the benefits package.
