    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Qualys (Redwood City, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through Qualys' website, heard back from recruiting team the next day to schedule a call.

    Received the call the next day. I was expecting it to be phone screening but was actually from director of engineering. Bombed the interfview, ended with director telling me 'I am not going to cut it.' I actually enjoyed how straight forward the process was, simple and brutal.

    In my defense, they really caught me off guard with networking fundamental concept questions. So make sure you study for those other than the usual DS and algorithm stuff.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Qualys in July 2014.

    Interview

    I was blindsided with a full phone interview that was earlier advised to be just an initial screening call. Interviewer doesn't seem too professional. Doesn't listen. Interviewer seems more interested in giving criticism remarks rather than observing. I have answered each question well with logical support but was told I do not qualified with because I don't sound comfortable enough. I wonder who can be comfortable after being asked with ridiculous non related questions. Interviewer advised me he would recommend my profile to the BD department instead as I would qualify there but as expected interviewer did not keep his words. Thought I was applying for a high school summer job. I question the integrity of Qualys.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Qualys.

    Interview

    - phone screen was more testing the technologies and tools you know with some questions on how to use them.
    - on-site was totally different,
      - team uses Spring-boot server and related frameworks and testing apache flink for big data. So for all Java questions, they want solution in spring only. The interviewers are junior or mid and do not understand other related technologies.
    - VP was off-mood, keep on boasting about how Qualys was great and changes the game about security vulnerability and all over the cloud. Kept on saying - we find "good-quality" engineers in Pune and ramped up 100 to 700 staff in 2 yrs. Seems to be that not interesting in hiring in US.
