I applied online. I interviewed at Pure Storage in Apr 2021

Interview

In case you're wondering what Pure does, they design storage hardware and software built around Flash memory, which presents unique technical challenges. As a result, they have a need for engineers all the way from the very lowest level, to high level application code. Due to having a technical co-founder from the beginning, they have a transparent culture which includes engineers in every level of decision making. From the outset, Pure makes it clear that they hire generalists and the interviews are pretty indicative of their problem-solving culture. Recruiter was good about following up and accommodating getting me thru the process before an offer expired. Interviewers were all enthusiastic if you asked the right questions. It went smooth, and no complaints honestly. If you apply during the wrong time in the planning cycle, it might take some time to identify which team you're placed on and get the offer, which is why I didn't end up accepting their offer.

Interview Questions
  • Technical: Pure has a few standard questions that they recycle, and the interviewers are trained to walk you through. Begins with a coding portion, and you are asked to improve it or ask how you would deal with a more complicated case at a high level. One about identifying whether points form a cube, one about locks, and some more. Behavioral: The interviewers usually jump right into it. One part of the on-site is the reverse interview where you get to ask any questions you want, either an engineer or a manager.

15min recruiter call then 1hr technical telephone screen to solve 1 or 2 technical questions which is common in tech industry. There is min 30 word requirement hence I am filling up the space

Interview Questions
  • Leetcode hard. I didnt felt like it was interview. The person on other hand kept on telling me dont worry about this and that. Focus on (a) (b) (c). While doing those asks he will then do same things. In my 1hr call that person kept talking like 40mins. Be prepared to waste your time with them.

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Pure Storage (San Jose, CA) in Mar 2021

Interview

Recruiter arranges an interview with the hiring manager, but on that appointed day there shows up another junior guy. He asks how to call two API provided in a library, single threaded single CPU. I really can not figure out what's his intention. And later I am told they would not continue. That's the most uncomfortable interview experience.

Interview Questions
  • how to call two API from a library in single thread single CPU.
