    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Daimler Trucks North America in December 2015.

    Interview

    Invited to interview from a networking event. It was an in-person interview that lasted one hour with a few members of the development team and a product owner. The interview included a technical portion with two different questions. I was asked to take the lead in solving two coding challenges, while working with the team to discuss and come up with a solution.
