    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Northrop Grumman (San Diego, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    This was a HackerX thing -- speed dating with this company and 7 others. This would have been preliminary to a more extensive interview. I did it mostly out of curiosity -- I had worked in aerospace and wondered what had changed. (Not anything as far as I could tell.) The jobs were all for developers working on or in support of jet fighter avionics.

    Brief phone interview asking about personal projects, with a few technical questions at the end.
