    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at NVIDIA (Santa Clara, CA) in December 2011.

    Interview

    Applied via one of NVIDIA's research partners (I've sent my CV after my internship with recommendation letter from my mentor). Within 2 weeks they scheduled a phone interview with some manager who was very, very easy going person. I was given a "homework" - a simple assignment in C to do within 2 days. Just after they received my solution my second interview was scheduled (next week). This time I came across an even nicer person, a guy who had his interns last year and got hired after that. I was asked some technical questions, really easy ones and we spoke much about my project (he even ofered some help with that!). I'm so excited I got hired, because guys at NVIDIA seem to be very clever, yet easy going and friendly.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe virtual memory (how does it work, what is it for, when to use it and when not)   2 Answers
    • I was given a short function in C (dictated because we were hanging on a phone):
      int foo(int a) {
        int result = 0;
        while (a >>= 1)
          result += 1
        return result
      }
      And my task was to say what's wrong with this function, what's its purpose and what would I write my colleague who submitted it for a code review   3 Answers
