    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sigma Designs (New York, NY).

    Interview

    They mainly contacted me and asked which position I was interested in regarding software or hardware engineer. Had a technical interview with a random software guy that went south pretty quickly as the questions became more and more vague. He wanted me to work with JTAG probes and setting up GUIs. I ended up taking the hardware.
