    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Zynga.

    Interview

    Still in the review process, so cannot answer the offer section.

    Applied through my university's COOP/intern program.

    45 minute interview, part technical, part standard. The interviewer was an actual programmer with experience, so the technical part was great since he could actually understand the different solutions and thought processes behind each question, as well as understand several different languages. (Python, Java, C)

    The technical portion consisted of 3 questions, after which some fairly standard questions were asked (ie the "Describe yourself" question, "What's your goal", etc.), and then for the last 5 minutes I got a chance to ask several questions.

    Interview Questions

    • 1. Can't remember, but it was a simple sanity question (ie do something simple to see if you can actually write a program)
      2. Given a string containing brackets (ie "(( hi ) )", write a function that can determine if it's closed or not. What if the function took into account any pair of opening/closing characters?
      3. Given 2 int arrays (unsorted, duplicates can exist), create a function that returns the unique (no overlap) ints from both arrays.   Answer Question

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Zynga (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I first had a phone round with live coding with an engineer. Easy questions.
    This was followed by a day long onsite interview in their Toronto office. Mostly problem solving and algorithms. One software design question. Engineers aren't trying to trick you and are very helpful when you need hints. Lunch is provided.

    Declined the offer because I got another one I was more interested in.

    Pay and benefits are good and can be negotiated.

    Interview Questions

    • Motivation to apply to Zynga.
      As for the technical questions, you need to prepare data structures and algorithms and databases. REST architectures etc.   Answer Question
