    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Redmond, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Microvision (Redmond, WA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of two super-casual interviews with senior engineers. The questions they asked were very general and showed that the level of understanding needed for success was potentially not as high as I initially expected.
