    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zynga (Bengaluru (India)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I applied to Zynga through linkedin for their Game Services team, and the process moved really fast. I had one on one interview with the Engineering Director at the SF office, who asked basic concepts (how hashmaps works, write code for find if the given strings are anagram or not etc.).

    I got call next day morning and f2f interviews were scheduled after 3 days. I met the Engineering Manager for the game services team for the first round, and she largely asked about my current project, how would I go about selecting rdbms vs nosql for a project, and writing code to remove duplicates from a linkedlist etc.

    Second round was design/architecture round with a senior developer, and we spent the entire time discussing how to design a leaderboard. She was looking at the "sorted set" implementation of redis, which I was not aware of beforehand.

    Third round was with Senior Engineering Director, who had been in the bangalore office for a visit. He asked basic questions about time/space complexity for the given code snippet and asked me to program how to insert a number in a sorted linked list.

    After that I met the HR manager, who asked about expected CTC, when can I join etc. and usual HR questionnaire, and told me that they would get back to me in next 2-3 days with their response. I got a rejection mail about a week later.

    Principal Software Engineer Interview

    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Zynga (Bengaluru (India)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    This company not known for great experience.

    But contrary to that I had great experience with both HR and Engineers.

    Interview was conducted for Gaming service team. 2 online rounds where I was asked 1) Linkedlist 2)BST and 3)Distributed top K questions
    After that I was invited to Bangalore. First round was DS and Algo. Second interview conducted by Tech Director of Farmville 2 and he asked only one question of converting Roman Number to Decimal. Third round with Country Manager with usual questions.

    Lunch was there(heard good things about their lunch) with Fish, Chicken, WaterMelon, Papayya, Paneer, Chapati, Rassam etc

    Finally they offered me good compensation.

    ZYNGA is sinking ship but holds i) Cash of > $1 Billion and ii)Confidence of making big in Mobile mkt. They have one game "Dawns of Titans" waiting to be launched in 2016. I wish it changes the Fortune of Zynga(because Zynga known to reward employees with open hands).

    I had great experience with both Engineers and HR. But I felt very bad when I declined their offer as I was uncomfortable to shift to Banaglore

    Interview Questions

    • convert roman number to decimal...Half of ans given by interviewer himself :)   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Only because I was not comfortable to move from Pune to Bangalore. Otherwise they were offering great compensation(felt like they are pay master, but you need to negotiate hard)
