Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at NVIDIA in June 2014.

Interview

Submitted resume online. Got contact from the HR in about a week. Phone interview with the hiring manager. One week later had on-site interview with 9 people. Got offer one week later.

The overall process is very efficient. I am impressed. One of the sharpest design teams I have ever come across. The management is very good, too. Sure, it is not surprising that the interview itself can be difficult to some people. This is how the company picked up the best people, right?

Interview Questions

  • Most people there have very strong background so expect lots of algorithm/design quiz. It is really not much different from, say, interview at Google.   1 Answer

    Three phone screens: One technical interview (Lot of systemverilog/UVM questions). Scoreboard stuff and past work experience - this was tough

    • After three phone screens, I was invited on-site
      Four rounds:
      1) Verification (SV, UVM questions), coverage, knowledge on tools, simulator (VCS) questions, how to write testplan. I was given a simple DUT, and was asked questions about scoreboard for the design (I spent 40 mins writing a scoreboard code in UVM)

      2) Perl: Problem solving skills were tested using perl. Complicate hash usage, basic File IO was observed

      3) Lunch : general technical discussions. Where do I see myself

      4) Logic design stuff
