    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at OpenTV (San Francisco, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and spoke to a recruiter that day who set up an onsite the following week. Onsite interview was 3 rounds with a total of 5 people, followed by a take-home technical test. I was told test should take 5 hours. Took more like 30 hours. (Checked with a senior dev friend who confirmed 5 hours was an impossible estimate). No response or acknowledgement after submitting the test i.e. no formal rejection just silence. Rude.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at OpenTV (San Francisco, CA) in November 2008.

    Interview

    The hiring process was very smooth - the on-site interview was very long though - lasted a good 6 hours (8 different people interviewed me). The people were very helpful in the interviews - they seemed like interviewers who'd "select" and not "reject" candidates. The questions ranged from algorithms to data structures to C/C++/OOP to OS concepts - threads/processes - IPC mechanisms, memory management, call stack, scheduling algorithms, networking concepts.

    Interview Questions

    • Given an array of integers, write a function to find the list of all pairs whose sum equals a given value. Discuss and give time/space complexities of your approach(es).

      Signature of the function is:
      public void (int array[], int sum) {
          // your code here
      }   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The company paid fairly - though I had to negotiate a lot before I made the final offer.
