Senior Software Engineer Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PopCap Games (Seattle, WA) in November 2011.

Interview

The communication with the recruiter and HR was disjointed -- I couldn't get hold of the recruiter at times. They apologized later, it was caused by reorg related to the acquisition by EA. When I came for the interview, the recruiter wasn't even in the office. Other HR people took charge to get things on track. The technical parts of the interview involved a refactoring exercise with a sample of very ugly code that had been previously removed from production. Then a paired-programming exercise that was genuinely fun to work through. One of the more pleasant developer interview processes that I have ever been through.

Interview Questions

  • In the refactoring exercise, the interviewer was looking to see if I knew my design patterns and could describe a good strategy for safely refactoring the bad code.   Answer Question
