    Principal Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at OpenTable (Washington, DC) in Feb 2020


    Smart, effective, efficient. After a couple of initial informal video chats with managers, a set of interviews was scheduled over a period of about a week. Because the entire process was done remotely via video, this worked well for all parties. In those interviews, I spoke with a total of six OpenTable employees, each of whom was friendly, open and well-prepared. Because of my extensive experience and endorsements from shared acquaintances, there was little in the way of technical questioning. Instead, the focus was on looking for signs of a good fit of technical philosophy and work style.

    How would I implement a visual representation of restaurant tables and parties, scaling up to 10,000 diners.
