    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Oceanit (Honolulu, HI) in December 2016.

    Interview

    First talked to HR about personal preferences, experiences in software development. Then talked to the scientist in depth about the area that you interviewing for. Last ended with a coding challenge question.

    The interview process was really smooth. I think the "meat" of the interview was in the conversation with the scientists. You needed to show that you are passionate about the topic. Don't lie! If you don't know something, you can be straightforward by telling them you are guessing, because they are much smarter than you, they KNOW if you are just BSing your way through.
