Software Development Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Rovi (Boston, MA) in May 2015.

Interview

Positive experience. The HR was very prompt in replying to emails. First arranged a phone interview within 2 days. The phone interview took about 45 minutes where the interviewer talked about the expectation, role and encouraged to ask questions. Basic questions on programming concepts, experience level, projects worked on. Its good to have some numbers / statistics on hand of the complexity of projects you have worked on, to give them a better insight into your work.
Received an email within hours from the HR asking for time for personal interview.

HR arranged a personal interview for the next week. There were 5 interviewers and each interviewed for 45 minutes to an hour. The focus is on your knowledge, understanding of concepts, problem solving ability. This was around afternoon, so they brought in lunch for me (a great sandwich!). The HR in the end, explained the benefits, policies and also gave a tour of the workplace.

Received an offer the next afternoon.
The entire process was extremely smooth. Everyone was very cordial, polite and professional.
