Senior Platform Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Santa Clara, CA

Positive Experience
Average Interview


I applied online. I interviewed at NVIDIA (Santa Clara, CA) in June 2017.


I applied online. Two weeks later a recruiter got back with me to schedule a phone screen. I had a phone screen with an engineer from the screen and it went well. One week later I had a second phone screen with the hiring manager on a Friday. I asked if we could expedite the interview process and they were able to get me into an on-site interview the next Wednesday. I heard back with a decision around two weeks later.

Throughout the interview process I was treated very well. I was asked technical questions, leadership questions, communication question, and some creative thinking questions. Everything we discussed during the interview process was very relevant to my background, the team, and the work I would be doing.

Unlike many other interview I recently went through Nvidia treated me like a person. I felt a high level of mutual respect and trust. The general process felt a lot smoother and more natural than the rigid series of questions I was given at other big companies.

I was left with a very good understanding of the role, the requirements, what they were looking for, and how life would be at the company. It left me feeling good like this was a company I would actually want to be at.
