Performance Engineering Interview

Anonymous Employee

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce in February 2017.

Interview

I applied online for Summer Internship position with Salesforce' Performance Engineering team. An initial phone screen by one of the Managers was later followed by four 1:1 interviews. Highly satisfied with the level of promptness, transparency and professionalism displayed by everyone I got to interact within the team. HR team is proactive in following up and keeping you updated throughout the process. Never did I feel left out and stranded. Interviewing panel was obviously knowledgeable, but at the same time very friendly and approachable. The technical/managerial rounds were quality, and judged how your professional/academic experiences and skill-sets align to the requirements demanded by the position. It was more focused on my prior job experiences, rather than just limited to theoretical/coding rounds, which made it very relevant. If you know your stuff, you should be good to go!

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Several interviews. I believe one was behavioral while the other was simply the usual tech questions. Both were with managers. Since it was more for performance position, they asked how to optimize JavaScript code. They also asked basic algorithms using hashmaps and hashsets.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    The entire process was really straightforward. I had a phone call with an engineer where he asked me how I would design a hashtable without any built-in language tools. The second question was how I would optimize for either reads or writes and how I would approach load balancing during peak usage.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce in February 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through the company website and soon after got an email from the Salesforce recruiter, asking me to schedule a call with her. This was a casual chat about my interests and past projects, along with some behavioral interview questions. Soon after, I had an interview with the Director of Performance Engineering and everything seemed to go just fine till then. I was then referred to a company performance engineer for a 3rd round. I thought I did well through the process, but never heard back from the recruiter. After weeks of trying to reach out, I was informed that the recruiter left and that they had cancelled all performance engineering internships. I lost so much time in the process.

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA) in December 2011.

    Interview

    It was quick, 1 phone screen interview, after that onsite interviews(6 interviews onsite). Questions weren't too difficult but not very easy as well had to think, mostly related to performance in 3-tier architecture find areas that can be bottlenecks, some OO concepts, database indexing and sql queries. Overall the interview questions are position based, not very difficult although the test is tedious to finish but not impossible. With some Java programming practice one can clear the interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • Find performance bottleneck in 3 tier architecture   Answer Question
    • sql query to find count of students having same last name   2 Answers
    • database indexing, garbage collection techniques, difference between interface and abstract class, which one to use when, difference between hasmap and hashset and some more data structure related questions   Answer Question
