    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AlienVault (Austin, TX) in September 2017.

    Applied online through the university website. Got a follow-up mail in a few days and scheduled a phone interview. Phone interview was mostly about me talking about my projects. Lunch interview was more like talking more about case scenarios.
