    Software Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Marchex (Seattle, WA) in November 2015.


    Marchex came to my University's career fair and gave out a set of challenge problem. I completed the two problems and explained my solution to one of their engineers. They invited me to dinner later that night and offered me an interview for a Software Engineering internship. The interview was one stage on-site and consisted of 3 parts. The first part was a pair programming exercise with one other engineering programming with me and another acting as a program head and taking notes of the process. The question involved test driven design behind designing a family tree type object. The next part of the interview was a basic object oriented design question. After this, I was asked a couple basic coding questions and then I was able to ask the engineering interviewing me questions about the company. After this, i was given a tour of the office and the manager giving me the tour went into detail about what the company does and more behind their technology. After that, I was free to leave and I was told that offer decisions should be emailed a week from then, which is in a couple days now.
