    I worked at MyHeritage full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free catered yummy lunches twice a week, also a fully stocked break room with plenty of snacks. Company outings to movies and other fun things monthly. Great commissions! Easy to get to location, lots of parking.

    Cons

    One manager lacked the experience of knowing how to do my job. She would ask me how to do certain things. They weren’t clear with their customer that’s they’re set on yearly auto pay.

    Advice to Management

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at MyHeritage.

    Interview

    The first interview was conducted via a skype phone call, since I live and work in Canada. The second was a 1.5 hour "quiz". Now I'm not sure why they chose this methodology of testing people perhaps it works for them in some countries around the world. But it certainly didn't work for me.

    Having been in this business 20 years I can say with certainty that this is a terrible way to assess a candidates worthiness or even performance. I know of only two engineers that could have answered all three questions (both have masters degrees in computer science), in the time frame specified. If you want a challenge to prove your programming skills go ahead and take it but IMHO, stay away and don't get discouraged if you can't get any of the questions right.

    Interview Questions

    • A zero-indexed array A consisting of N integers is given. A triplet (P,Q,R) is called a triangle iff
      0 <= P < Q < R < N &&
      A[P] + A[Q] > A[R]
      A[Q] + A[R] > A[P]
      A[R] + A[P] > A[Q]
      The perimeter of such a triangle equals
      A[P] + A[Q] + A[R]
      For example, consider the following array A:
      A[0] = 10
      A[1] = 2
      A[2] = 5
      A[3] = 1
      A[4] = 8
      A[5] = 20
      Triplet (0,2,4) is a triangle and it's perimeter equals 10+5+8=23. There is no other triangle
      in this array with a larger perimeter.
      Write a function:
           function solution($A);
      that, given a zero-indexed array A of N integers, returns the maximum perimeter of any triangle
      in this array. The function should return -1 if there are no triangles.

      For example, given:

      A[0] = 10
      A[1] = 2
      A[2] = 5
      A[3] = 1
      A[4] = 8
      A[5] = 20

      The function should return 23, as explained above.

      Given array such that:

      A[0] = 5
      A[1] = 10
      A[2] = 18
      A[3] = 7
      A[4] = 8
      A[5] = 3

      the function should return 25: the triangle with the maximum perimeter is (1,3,4)

      While for array A:

      A[0] = 10
      A[1] = 20
      A[2] = 30

      the function should return -1 as it is impossible to create a triangle.

      Assume that:

      N is an integer within the range of [0 .. 100,000]
      each element of array A is an integer with range of [0 .. 100,000,000]

      Elements of the input arrays can be modified.   Answer Question
