    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ikanos.

    Interview

    Contacted Ikanos directly (through their website) after hearing about the opening online. Heard back from the hiring coordinator and spoke with her briefly via email. This led to an 1-on-1 phone interview with her, followed (the next day) by a 2nd 1-on-1 phone interview with the director of the Analog team. The following week I interviewed on site, which consisted of a 45-min presentation followed by several 1-on-1 interviews with members of the Analog team (~ 30-45 min in length each).

    Interview Questions

    • No one particular question comes to mind - several challenging questions were asked about different circuit topologies or design/test situations.   Answer Question
