    Software Engineer Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Orc Group (Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)) in August 2013.

    Interview

    First interview with manager and team lead. Mostly generalt talk about the position and some tech talk. Second interview with team lead and engineer was technical. Last two interviews with CTO and then HR.

    Interview Questions

    • First interview: General standard stuff.

      Second: General programming and Java specific question. Provided some code snippets where one should point out the error or make improvements. Solve a task at home that was received in forehand and present and talk about it in the interview. Task was basically: Create an echo server and client communicating via tcp, with production quality.

      CTO: General stuff again. Mostly the CTO talking about the company and asking funny questions like "When is a product complete", for which there is of course no correct answer.

      HR: Formality to get to know the last details before an offer is extended.

      Company has changed a lot since this. Do not expect the same process.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did the initial bid. They lowered it a little bit, we then met in the middle. Very little resistance. Could probably have gotten more.
